How so?

Some threads I cannot delete spam posts but others I can?

Some posts I get the check box option, others not.

Just wanting to help keep the forum clean

If they have more than a certain number of posts they can't be spam squadded. Do'nt recall what the threshold is, we had it raised once.

There's been a massive increase in spam this week, we're aware of it. Trying to get an upgrade fast-tracked.

In the last year we've probably had a half dozen spammers post more than 10 posts or so...3 of them have been in the last week.

Most of them post 1-3 times and thats it.

Am i supposed to be able to mark them as spam and then they get deleted? I can only flag as spam and nothing else.

If you click the ! mark below the rep, you can check the box that you are sure this is spam, then enter a message in the text box, I usually just put "spam" in there. You only get the check box if they have less than a certain number of posts. If the check box is checked then the post is deleted.
