Makes me wonder if they are monitoring the content anymore.

I've actually had good luck in the past flagging many entries from a spammer. I just go through their recent posts, flag all the offending posts and then in a day or two, their posts are all gone, user disappears or they act in accordance with the rules we all abide by.

I also try to flag as many as I can, but most of the spammers list themselves in the "other" category and have posted multiple items. Wonder if they reappear under different bogus names...

Though I've been a bit inactive the past few months so things may have changed since then, I hope not--I really like this site as do many of my clients.

If you can give me a link, I'll bring it to their attention.

All the ones that include a "free download".

I did that, and I don't see anything.

Hi Alan,
Just scroll through the first few pages of the agent to agent section to see what I'm referring to. Thanks!

It really is quite annoying and it doesn't seem to make any difference how times I flag them. I agree--it feels like Trulia is asleep at the switch.

Yes. Those people need to get a real life and figure out how to use the internet in a productive manner instead of taking advantage of good, honest websites like Trulia!

Just checked, and all of the spam from earlier today has been deleted. Nice work, Trulia- thanks!

I agree. Trulia should have someone check hourly and delete them. After about a week the spammers should give up.

Maybe they can create a program that keeps the spammers out because they are relentless. It is also very unfair that Trulia has to pay income to somebody to take care of the nusiance!

I think spammers are ruining many peoples' experiences (not just agents - though it's certainly driving me to drink) on Trulia. Hoping for a fix ASAP!!!
