    Is there any way to delete rude comments from your My Flock page, other than just asking for the entire page to be deleted?

    We can't say because then spammers would just post until they get there and spam away. It isn't that many. Talk with us and you'll be there in no time.

    It's allowed once. You must ask a moderator to do it for you.

    You can red flag a comment if you feel it maybe inappropriate and a moderator will take a look at it. Just click on the text of the comment and the flag should come up.

    There is a multitude of foreign language posts showing up on the Raising baby chicks section. I don't even want to click them to flag, b/c someone suggested that they may be spam.

    They've been flagged by me. When a moderator gets to the queue, they will nuke the spammers, trust me. One click, gone with the wind.

    We are having another spam attack. We are aware of it and doing what we can to stop it. Thanks for being patient.

    I used to hate those when I was a moderator. And they always seemed to happen on weekends when I was the only one on board, lol. Lucky me, eh? The new system at least makes it easier to get rid of all their posts with the click of one button. We used to have to go delete them one at a time.

    If someone is posting politically and religiously charged comments, is that against the BYC rules? I'm trying to separate my personal feelings on this from actual site rules.

    Debby, that is a good question. The forum rules state:

    Quote: If you see any posts/comments that you feel is inappropriate, would you please report them for the Staff's attention? Just click on the little red flag in the bottom left corner of each post. Reports are confidential and can only be seen by Staff members.
