If it is not obvious, repl.it has a severe lack of moderation. The repl.it talk boards are full of trolls and spammers and that quite frankly hurts the reputation of this otherwise lovely site.
I'm sure that the repl.it team is quite aware of this issue, but I have not noticed a decrease in troll posts and general spam. In fact, levels actually seem to be increasing.
My suggestion is to employ more staff. I'm sure there are many trustworthy members on repl.it who would voluntarily moderate repl.it. That includes myself. Please, repl.it team, please increase moderation on repl.it talk.
This issue will not solve itself, and I am merely providing my opinion on a possible solution.
@GavHern I did submit my feedback https://repl.it/feedback/p/repl-talk-needs-proper-spam-filters But I got the impression there wasn't much perception of the volume of spam and distracting content and their negative consequences on the platform. Repl Talk could indeed use some love but Repl.it has a small staff working on many cool projects.
