Is there any way to implement a way to verify accounts/posts or a captcha process? 

These bots are getting out of control with these (inappropriate) posts

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think bots are posting unsuitable comments, and a moderator would be more efficient anyway

@Vincenzo Because I have been deleting the ones I have seen. 

This is one of the accounts that I just found and haven't taken action yet. (caution: NSFW)

It's just tedious when its hundreds of spam posts.

I agree with @avid, yesterday I've deleted dozens of spam for Indian call-girls and I've also wondered if account verification wouldn't be a good idea for avoiding this for the future.

Account verification plus limiting # of messages/chats per hour until a certain number of points are accrued.

Hello....What is being done with account verification? Spam is horrible. I cannot spend an hour removing escort ads and when I realize there are already the same or more that I have removed. 

Sometimes it makes me want to quit.

@Fran Unfortunately it appears nobody is maintaining the site. I wonder how the database records can be preserved when all of a sudden the plug could get pulled and the site could just disappear.

@Fran I fully agree. Personnaly I gave up deleting spam. I also stop accepting new players, teams, numbers, etc. until an account verification is implemented.

I do think its quite ironic I have to do a captcha to send an email to admin on here… but yet the bots still run free lol

DIARY OF DESPERATION

9:15 I go to the web and directly go to see the ranking of the most active users.This "user" (https://women.volleybox.net/user/Alexandergra) has been very active and already has 207 comments this month

9:37 I manage to delete all the comments, meanwhile in these 20 minutes I have blocked two new bots that were already posting more comments (one was able to post 3 and the other caught it just 20 seconds after registering and did not post any)

….. to be continued

10:30 I go back in and new leader in the user with more comments (https://women.volleybox.net/user/mevil).

He had signed up 9 minutes before and I caught him "only" with 10 comments
