    DAT's tolerance for allowing spam cluttering up the board is soon going to cause me to drop them.

    Companies like Globaltraz and BigBird repost the same #### load over and over again to try to get their #### offering at the top. Its like weeding through a haystack of GlobalTranz and BigBird reposts to see the loads actually on offer. I guess it allows DAT to advertise there are 800,000 loads posted a week... 600,000 of them were reposts from spam artists wasting my time and making DAT a chore to use.

    And I'm paying for this?

    I see the same thing with different names. They post their loads in 10-20 cities with the same actual pickup 450 miles away. Longship is the worst with that. They post north Carolina loads in Orlando.

    Have you complained to DAT about it, or just here where it won’t do any good?

    I think a long thread with lots of similar complaints, agreements attached to a complaint to DAT would do some good.

    But then again I think, instead of troll

    Says the guy who starts a thread asking if $55,000 is a good deal for a run of the mill dry van. Right…

    It won't do any good complaining to DAT either. I tried numerous times to no avail. It's actually one of the main reasons I cancelled my account with them.

    Then they have the audacity to charge you for the ability to block those top posting board spammers. Nice little racket they have going on. I ended up canceling my account with DAT in the end.

    I'm sure they were broken hearted.

    There should be free load boards. You know brokers would post loads on them. Whatever happened to the TV's in truck stops with loads lol
