Can More Members Be Vigilant
I have only logged in the last 30 mins or so I checked my email notifications and seen a reply that I knew instantly was forum spammer. More members must be vigilant and report these obnoxious people we don't need them. Please help the forum. ATB

Dave, I'm glad you brought this up. We do our best to keep the forum spam-free, and proactively ban any new registers that are known spammers before they post. But every so often one or two will slip by and we get nailed. Even if members do report it, it doesn't do any good if a mod is not around to zap the spam.

We have an option to fight spam that we have not used yet but we are about to start. Please see this thread for details:

In the meantime please let me remind members who are reporting spam that it is only necessary to report one post by a spammer. If one out of several is reported, we can automatically remove everything posted by the spammer. Please do not go to the trouble to hunt down each and every post, as all this does is create additional tickets that we have to respond to.

We are very grateful to ALL members for reporting spam, as it helps us keep the forum clean. Thanks for your reports!

I think I got one yesterday and I just deleted it. Wasn't thinking.

Never Delete Techie! Always report it this way we can reduce the amount of spammers even further :) ATB

You are welcome Jean! As I know how buzy mods can be with the day to day running of the forum:)
