    I generally see the ones with a few IP or email Spam hits (I think) -- the ones with a 1/2 dozen hits or less... The ones with 10s-100s+ hits, I probably don't ever see.

    There are some other spam indications (multiple posts per minute, key words like Vi****, etc.)--But I rarely ever "have the privilege" to see those--I am guessing that the spam rules are based on entries from a bunch of different forums under their umbrella (or even more, if this has some outsourced components). A few times, I have seen "things change"--Possibly where other forums has labeled somebody as a spammer, and then that poster gets pulled from our forum. It is very hard for me to tell--Stuff the changes when I am not looking, I don't see much evidence.

    Once somebody has 5+ posts, they never should hit the spam queue--All should post. (a year or two ago, there was a period when the spam queue had some bugs and put more people in the queue than they should--Now, very few problems that I have to "correct" (pull from queue, or posted to forum when they should not have been posted).

    David,

    Here are some of the methods I use:

    Go to our forum search page (or just use the search box, and with nothing in it, hit <enter>

    https://forum.solar-electric.com/search

    You now have a large search box in the middle of the screen, with a down arrow "v" to the right, hit it and you will get the "full" forum search menu: Search by Title, Author, Forum Categories, Tags, and within a date range.

    Or you can use the "Site:" Tag and search using Duckduckgo, Google, etc. The "Site:" tag will limit you to a specific website (like ours), and you can use the plain language search engines:
    • site:forum.solar-electric.com bluetooth battery charger marc
    And some other controls that should work with most search engines:

    https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/2466433?hl=en

    +word (must include word), -word (must not include word), "quoted phrase" (exact phrase), $123...$456 (range of numbers), OR (this OR that), etc.

    Advanced Google Query Page:

    http://www.googleguide.com/sharpening_queries.html (note: this page shows "advanced" to right of search box, on my browser, "advanced is at very bottom right of the screen)
    https://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en&fg=1

    You can go to a member's page by clicking on their name and see their profile and display their last Discussions (threads) or Comments (posts):

    https://forum.solar-electric.com/profile/BB.

    https://forum.solar-electric.com/profile/discussions/BB.
    https://forum.solar-electric.com/profile/comments/BB.

    I do not believe that members can download a list of all members (make it a bit more difficult for people and bots to screen scrape and spam).

    If you are looking for something specifically, please feel free to PM me and ask. I will see what I can do to help.

    I (we) do not release people's email addresses and other personal information. And, obviously, we don't release a list of all members (if I can generate one--Not sure I even can) unless there is a good reason or a warrant (no warrants yet--That I know of).

    BB, Iam communicating with hot rod and we have exchanged phone numbers, he will leave me email soon , I want to read all his posts , he has read mine, we met on solar panel talk, got lots in common. This forum is so much better than over there I butted heads over there and let the "expert" make a fool of himself, then I set him straight..DELETED BY ME.. if you know I am talking about, very much an expert in his field but he was way out of it on the issue that he blasted me with, he used disguised profanity at me, told me I wasn't to post then made himself an a....
    Oh well, I don't need to sink to that level, gained a bunch of likes over there....
