As most of you probably already know, there has been, in the last week, a bombardment of spam from the same source.

We have deleted over a hundred threads and banned all the registered user names that were responsible, but new ones keep popping up. We check in multiple times per day to keep the place clean and under control.

To those of you who have been reporting, thank you. You can report a thread or a registered user. It is more efficient, and easier, for us to clean up a mess if we go through reports of registered members, rather than thread-by-thread.

Hopefully, this will soon run its course, but in the meantime, be assured that we are doing what we can to minimize the impact on the site.

Is reporting users the same way as reporting threads?
Basically, yes. But with large amounts of spam threads from the same user, it is easier for us to clean everything up when the person is reported instead of each post or thread.

If the issue is the occasional inappropriate post within a thread, then reporting the post is better.

Cool. Will report whenever I see it.

Not sure how your deleting or banning anybody since that can only be done by moderators and admin.

They aren't, but that is a straight copy and paste sentence from what Scotty said in the first post. I have no idea why Bricekaty would do that.

Really? Guess I should have looked at the two other posts they made.
