There are multiple spam topics on Magento Connect forum, many duplicates and not even in English.

This makes real posts hard to find and probably discourages users from answering. Posted some questions and assistance request with some extensions we’re trying to submit and did not receive any reply for weeks.

Unfortunately you have a few problems with that. Given the economic climate most are trying at any cost to sell products, services, keep revenue stable. There is not much help here any more, most are struggling to stop their sites revenue from decreasing, services providers are trying to sell time/products using any means possible to also keep revenue from decreasing.

There are many reasons for this happening, but bascially the information flows are slowing down and the selling is going up, that is just how it is. They should do something about the mass spam postings though, that is quite annoying.

Still present problem and it seems like magento doesn’t want to fix this or doesn’t do anything about this problem.

Sure, SPAM is the main problem of this forum.
Why SysAdmins don’t make any actions??

Unfortunately the admin tools are a bit aged. There are some plans though which will be announced soon.

In the meantime there is plenty of assistance to be found over at the Magento Stack Exchange site.

I guess for now the best solution is to BOOKMARK all the needed topics.
This is a new feature of this forum. I do so grin
