is a perfect example of what not to do. It was up for almost days before anybody bothered to let me know even though 2 other people posted in the thread and 55 of you read it.
Making comments in the thread will not get spam threads or posts deleted. If we missed the original spam chances are we are going to mis your posts as well. While I read a pretty good number of the threads on the forum I do not go through all of them. Not sure how many Lee reads but I am pretty positive he does not read all of the either. It is not only the thread above, we had an issue with the ALN thread a week or so ago that went on for days because everyone kept making comments in the thread about the spam but nobody let the mods know there was an issue.
On the other hand hitting the report button lets all of use know via email that something has been reported so it usually gets taken care of pretty quickly.
So things not to do.
Quote the spam with a snarky remark or making a snarky post without the quote
Send a PM
Send an email
The one thing that you should do.
HIT THE REPORT BUTTON.
