...while you're cleaning up the watch spam, could you also clean up the escort spam in the Pany section (that was posted a few days ago)?

Thanks - Mark

P.S. Also feel free to delete this post/thread.

If you ever see a bad post in the lower right of the message there is an exclamation point ! click it and it will allow you to report the page as spam or inappropriate

Yeah, but there were, like, ten of them. And the Mods are really good about cleaning that stuff up. So I figured this would work, too. Which it did, since they're gone now.

Thanks to whoever did that - Mark

The exclamation marks do really help, so please keep flagging what looks like spam - thanks!

I agree Gordon, today there was a ton of spamming with some post explaining some disease and then with a ton of links that IDK what they were (I didn't feel like clicking those anyways), I went ahead and reported almost all of them (some had been already reported). I'm glad to see that you and the mods took the time to clean up the forums from that spam. Thanks!

One request with the reporting people, Gordon.

The majority of topics I've seen that were worthy of reporting have been Spam rather than Warez - is there a way to set Spam as the default when reporting rather than Warez?

It could save a little bit of time when reporting.

Just my two cents.

Just a suggestion, could you block the spammers ip address to stop them coming back?

I moderate on a home brew forum & that's what the admin on there do.

Not to sound defeatist but it will only stop some of them coming back. There's no shortage of ways to get around such a block for the most persistent of spammers.

Gordon/mods, is it possible to set the ! to automatically hide the post if reported?
Trying to read the forums is becoming a joke tbh (off topic is the worst by far)

Gordon will certainly have a look into this as there is currently a wave of spam hitting the forum. All from different single posters that have to be banned individually. And they seem to target off-topic specifically. Which makes it easier to bulk delete them :mrgreen:
