    How to Report a Spammer

    When a spammer comes on to the forum and begins to fling his copypasta everywhere, it's usual for a half a dozen trusty anons to alert the mods by hitting the report button. You know, the one that looks like this: [IMG]

    Getting a number of reports at once is helpful, because it's a red light indicating that there's a significant issue.

    Thankfully, where several people report the same post, the software adds the reports together into one thread that we can read quickly, rather than many separate reports.

    When we go to delete the first spam post, the software gives us the option to "delete as spam". By choosing that option, we have the ability to automatically delete all posts by that user and to ban them in a nice quick and easy process.

    So, we don't need you to report every spam post by that user. Just the one will do.

    Your reporting of spammers is hugely helpful and usually means that their handiwork is up for only seconds or minutes at worst. Thanks.

    For everybody's benefit, here's the message that came up in a mod forum:

    And now, just like the Wizard of Oz, the mystery is gone.

    So that was easy though. I highly recommend you guys report any bad posts/spam.

    *cheesy thumbs up*

    Re: How to Report a Spammer

    Me too, pwnon.

    A gentle warning, though, that going to the extreme of abusing the report button would probably lead to painful infractions.

    Re: How to Report a Spammer

    Oh, most definitely.

    Remember kids: Use discretion when reporting posts. Nobody likes a tattletale.

    TD, I think it's time for some red name scissoring.

    Re: How to Report a Spammer

    There is a place reserved for you
    in the darkest heart of TD.

    It may not be the love you thought you wanted
    but the remnant left after the dancer has danced on
    persists in the memory of our each and own special
    and unique TD of the soul.
