As site feedback I would like to suggest that moderators take a firmer line against forums cross-posting in this forum. A classic link to another site with no comment on the local relevancy to SE23:
Some of these spam threads appear to be started just to increase Google rankings rather than for any serious local interest (I’m sure that isn’t really the case, but that’s how it begins to feel for normal users), and just like other users posting links without comment, these should be discouraged by the moderators.
These spam threads clutter up topics that might be of genuine local interest. Perhaps we could have one thread to tell us about stuff being posted in the Catford forum and another for the Sydenham forum (and others for Brockley and any other less local forums)?
