Remove/Ban all Referral Links
« on: September 25, 2015, 01:36:23 PM »
In an effort to cleanup the shilling/trolling of hundreds of threads and thousands of posts I think it would be prudent for LTCTalk to ban referrals from posts and threads.

The numerous scams in crypto are propagated by members looking to fleece others to gain their few %.

I'd like to see removal of referral links that only exist for profit of the spamming member.

We should aim to foster discussion not scamming of each other.

Thoughts?

I agree 100%, and the first course of action should to the deletion of all LTCgear threads and selling threads from members looking to fleece others to gain their few %.

This is the best idea ive seen proposed yet!  I wish we could get some collaboration going on btctalk aswell..  thanks for doing this Sukarti..  100% needed

and it needs to be no excuses.. if you have referral link you are immediately banned.. i know this will be some work for a while but eventually they will give up here and we can gain this forum back from the scammers..

Best Regards

Don't ban or delete, just move to a new subfolder called spam.

It would be awesome to ban referral links.  They hurt the entire LTC ecosystem, not just this forum.

A good (and brief) explanation of how these things work is found here:
