Post Reporting Spam

I just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone that takes the time to report posts/threads that are SPAM. It would be very tideous for me to go through every single thread to look for spam, so it helps the other staff and I a great deal. By no means is it required for members to do so, but it does help and I think those that do deserve my thanks.

Its users like you that make this community what it is today, please keep up the great job!

GTP, could we get a no replying to spam rule? They've got one in effect at OCN. I think it could help here too.

Yeah. Here's the OCN rule thread about it. Basically, it says it just bumps it up. At OCN they hand out infractions every time someone replies to spam.

Yeah the only problem I see with this is, is that sometimes the spam is so well done it doenst seem like spam at all. I dont think I would like to give out infractions, but rather warnings.

Whatever floats your boat. Usually we can tell the difference.

Usually but not always. I have seen people accidently respond to clever spam.
