    Question What's the correct way to Report spam?

    We are getting heaps of spam here lately.

    So when I see multiple posts from one of these cretins, is it best to report only 1 post and let the mods sort it out, or do I report a few of them?
    I don't want to bombard the mods with heaps of reports, if it only takes 1 to start a chain reaction.

    Travelmate certainly didn't handle the report button correctly.

    A good point, Gus.

    For me, only one post needs to be reported as I will then simply select all of his/her/its posts and dump them in one go. This is why you may see some idiot's post quoting a spammer. Feel free to red the idiot.

    As for DD banning the spammer; it's nice in theory, but he's not here 24/7 and he doesn't bother to read all the posts in the mods room, so generally we're left with a situation of mods following spammer around the forum all day. Of course, you'd think he would trust his team to use the ban button properly (unlike his use of it) after 7 years of support, but it seems not.

    After your comments the other day about not replying to there shit (ie: slagging them off), it occurred to me that I might be doing something else wrong.

    It seems to be more prevalent on the weekends, and I am having to look at the "last poster" poster before I click on a thread.

    Come on DD give the mods a bit more latitude, in banning spammers straight off.

    My friends, I am away from home and have been robbed...

    well, any spambot with asense of humour would...

    Would it be easy/possible to set up a special delete all button especially for spammers, all mods could have that power and a seperate file could then be checked by the head honcho later to make sure there was no abuse of the mighty power to ban...
    How do I post these pictures???

    DD is missing the essential point. i.e employing dogs, but doing the barking himself. Trust your mods with such simple crap - until they fuck up or abuse the position, then change the mods.

    In all honesty marmite, you are a bit of a cock, but even you could probably get banning spammers right....

    Apart from banning posters, that's already how we do it.

    Thank you for your kind words.

    We barely have enough time to dump all the crap, abuse other posters, upload photos for our amazing threads and watch porn, let alone say thanks to someone for pressing a report post button.

    Its getting to the point where i am seriously considering opting out of any notifications to the few threads i subscribe to.
    I would hate to think what a regular, and avid poster gets in his or her mailbox, notification-wise.
    Is someone, somewhere bearing a grudge against someone here, perhaps?

    There is so much right now, it is hard to find the actual posts. I quit. I'm off to read a spam-free book.
