Removed a thread naming a player, accusing him of cheating and listing a bunch of hands to try to prove it. This is against the forum rules - not only you can't name a player and start a public trial in the forums, it's also not allowed to list his boards and call for public analysis to try to prove something damaging to that player.

Removed a series of spammish posts promising a free event with prizes and asking for user's personal data.

Removed several spammy posts advertising a bridge lesson. Thanks to everyone who reported those.

Removed a few ads for what appears to be virtual clubs, from posters with no prior contributions to the forums.

Just to satisfy my curiosity, was this a result of something BBO sent out? The find a partner forum went from 0 activity to suddenly a dozen or more new posts in a day, these virtual club posts included. Often you get an influx of new forum posts if something interesting is featured in the BBO newsfeed, but it wasn't there..so wondering where they all came from.

[OK, it's in the newsfeed now.]

This might be the cause:

latest Bridge news said:

Last month Tihana wrote about finding a bridge partner. Some of you asked how to do this on BBO; if you feel like playing a pair tournament and none of your partners are around, go to the tournament's Partnership desk to add your name, or invite someone to partner up. But if you're looking for a steady bridge partner check out the Looking for a partner section within the BBO Forum (you need to login with your BBO username and password to post).

non est deus ex machina; även maskiner behöver lite kärlek; les règles sont le jeu même.

Yep, one of the newsletter got a lot of questions about how to find a partner (in general, not just when trying to join the next open pairs) so we mentioned there is a subforum for this.

Also, hijacking the moderation thread is funny :)
