How about a way to flag a possible inappropriate post for the forum, then an administrator can review the post and retain or discard it? I ask because the post regarding a partnering in West Africa sounds like another scam, and I would hate to see this long overdue forum become a place for that kind of activity.
Just a thought, thanks MikeL

The functionality you are talking about is available in the community, but perhaps we could make it more obvious.
To the right of each post is a link for "Options" that opens a drop-down list. At the bottom of that list is "Report Innapropriate Content." That brings up a form where you can give additional details if needed. When you submit that form an email alert comes to me and the other moderators so we can take appropriate action such as removing the post and/or banning the user.
Like any forum we do get the occasional spam, but thanks to this feature and vigilant users we usually get rid of it within a day. Please use it any time you see improper material so we can keep the boards clean.
I'll investigate our options for making this feature more prominent. As for the West Africa message, someone did flag it, and we're investigating to determine the appropriate action.
