It's a problem. I like this site, it keeps us all in the loop and in most cases the low maintenance moderation is quite refreshing but a completely hands off approach will I feel kill the golden goose. If certain people are allowed to continue posting abusive crap and too much spam comes in then sadly users will slowly drift away. Which would be bad for this site and bad for the club.

I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

I've reported numerous posts on here that are blatant advertising, but the posts are sometimes there for weeks & then they may be removed. I'd be happy to help remove these posts if I was given the authority, as they are spoiling what can be a very good MB.

If I remember correctly we had about five moderators a while ago. Our two mods are presumably working and wouldn't see this as a priority over earning money. The posts don't sit here for "weeks"! The posts end up in the off topic room and looking back they're sometimes by the same author so maybe removing their registration asap might help? If Fat Josh is king of the board surely this is his responsibility.

I had not noticed that the admins were reduced to 2 in number.
Maybe a good time to ask for a couple more members to help out.

The glory days of previous years will never return as time has moved on but this board still does good work.

If Darlopete could remove all the spam rubbish on a regular basis that seems a great idea. They are easy to spot, nothing would be controversial.

I suppose nothing in life is 100% guaranteed.
