Alert - Ads on forum

Any chance that Admin could remove the Advert that remains the first item we see when entering the most frequented part of the forum. 

I am referring to Ponsi in GENERAL DISCUSSION. Ponsi is  taking the piss and making us look naive and  foolish.

There are two options:  1. I as moderator remove the post to the Off-topic or Rubbish section. 2. Posters refrain from bumping it up by responding to every little nuance contained in the previous post.

Option 1, is out of my remit.  Option 2. is down to posters PM'ing the main culprits and requesting them to do the obvious.

Appreciate the clarification. I thought you were moving posts to off topic and rubbish bin. I owe you a belated apology.

My own opinion is that it is obviously an advert by a non member and by someone not interested in the party case. I therefore find it very difficult to believe that it is within your remit to suspend forum/party  members but can't remove this 'take-over' of the forum..

Just because a post gets bumped up by a poster (whose not the original OP) is not a breach of the rules. If on the other hand if it is bumped up by the original poster and it contains the advert Possi will be suspended for breaching the rules.

It is not being bump up by other users posts. ALB has already pointed out that Ponsi is doing it himself and is taking advatage

Granted at one time Pozzi was deliberately bumping his posts to advertise his link.  However, the last time he posted on that thread was 11/04/17 and it contained no advert.  The thread was then bumped up by Marcos on the 12/04/17.

Reminder: 14. Rule enforcement is the responsibility of the moderators, not of the contributors. If you believe a post or private message violates a rule, report it to the moderators. Do not take it upon yourself to chastise others for perceived violations of the rules.

My suspicion is that nobody is responsible for bumping up posts but that the thread contains a glitch or bug of some description.

Sometimes a thread is dumped because the only way to make correction to a post is by bump it. The software used by the forum is very limited to do editing, but Pozzi is bumping to thrread in order to advertise his website

But why is it now showing that Marcos sent something today at 1.41pm when there's nothing there since 12.04.17?
