  • Identifying Spam

    Does anyone know if there is a way to tag a post so that it will be known as spam. Personally, I get enough spam as it is without have to see it show up on this forum. At least that way we can tag these things and not even give them the satifaction of anyone even reading their posts. Just a thought, let me know if anyone has any idea or if it is even possible. I think we have a good thing going here and I am willing to try to do something to keep it clean and useful. SSS

          Maybe someone who feels unwelcomed just wants to mess things up.

          I just saw more of the trash

          Even the spammer user id's are boring --- Vg1 vg3

              I suspect that we're seeing what Holly usually stops.
              I at least hope, that Holly has a long weekend off, & is enjoying it, with better things than reading all the posts on these forums!

                  Smartest thing you can do is NOT REPLY to thier threads.

                    Don't read the threads, don't reply to them and move on with your life.

                    Policing a BBS is the members responsibility in part, pointing these things out to the moderator is that responsibility. If there is too much spam that you don't like, then move on to somewhere else.

                    Remember moderators are people who have lives of their own.

                      Look at the triangle in the upper right hand corner. if you double click it, you can report a post for spam or whatever upsets you, language, etc.

                          Thanks COPE, I kinda feel a bit humbled by not noticing something that simple. That's exactly what I was looking for. SSS

                            thank you

                            cope is correct and we do appreciate when users report posts immediately. Although the Projects, Motorsports and Hobart Weld Talk message boards are all monitored, we cannot catch all inappropriate posts immediately, and we appreciate your patience. Reporting the thread as spam will send an email to all moderators, so that we can remove the post in a more timely fashion.

                            Thank you!

                              Also

                              Also, please do not post a reply to any spam thread - it only moves that thread to the top of the list. Ignoring it as well as reporting it will be the quickest way to get rid of it.
