Why have the roadster threads become nothing but troll fodder

Why have the roadster threads become nothing but troll fodder

It cannot possibly be worth their time to post stupid links. What is their point?

I'm guessing the spambots can't tell the difference between discussion topics so they just default to the newest one.

Gee, at the top of every single page it says:

"Posting to the Tesla Forums is now limited to verified Owners." are all these spam replies getting posted? Perhaps they mean "creating new threads is now limited"...?

Yes, that.

Dramsey | 2019年4月19日

That's what I've observed, and it's odd that Tesla is apparently unable to explain this cogently. | 2019年4月20日

@Dramsey - Creating new threads is now restricted. Adding posts to an existing thread is not limited.

As the roadster threads have very little activity, spam lasts longer than it does on other forums on the site. I usually check it out (and flag spam) about once a week. Seems like few others bother to flag the spam away.

I suppose they have to let anyone reply to existing threads, sigh, so non-owners can at least ask questions.

Like “how do I search”.

Facepalm. | 2019年4月21日

@Dramsey - Yep, how else would we get the latest perpetual motion idea that Tesla is ignoring.

I have great patience with the "How do I search" folks. This is, after all, the only forum software in the world that does not have a "Search" feature. It's kind of like a first time visitor to an Apple store wondering how they actually, you know, buy an item, since there are no cash registers or checkout stands.
