Richard, since it is really just Kian and I now who moderate the site, unfortunately, I am not able to get on here earlier in the day. Kian bears the brunt of cleaning up anything from the previous night, although I often check in here as late as 2:00 a.m.
These spammers are auto-generated as they almost always post in threes and we do our very best to eradicate them as quickly as we can. There is an entire "reporting procedure" we must go through with each new spammer. I try, when possible to pick up the evening slack but sometimes Kian is here before I am and she catches them.
As far as the gentleman from the U.K. is concerned, and I'm quite sure I know to whom you are referring, he engaged in a series of conduct most unbecoming ANY gentleman! Despite being asked repeatedly to cease and desist, he did not and therefore he chose his own consequences. That was quite some time ago now, and he has chosen to cut all ties with everyone with whom he was "friends" on here. That seems to be a well established pattern for him on various websites.
I apologize for not having more time to give to the Daily Puppy on certain days, and I am extremely grateful to Kian for carrying the load. If and when Kian is on holiday, I do my level best to be on here more often if my schedule permits.
