With this version of vB, this would be creating a group that would be very similar to an SMod (able to edit/delete posts/threads in all forums). At this time, I'm not sure that is the direction that TF would want to take. It may be something to look into at a later time and after an upgrade.
In the meantime, it is very helpful when members use the report post
feature. When I look at the number of times that members have seen the spam and then look at the number of times that it has been reported, it shows that most people ignore it or make some comment in the thread, but don't report it to the ones that can get rid of it. The most valuable help at this time is to report the posts.
Thanks for the suggestion.
