Default Spam!

No, not the good stuff in a can; the annoying stuff that has been popping up here more frequently. We're looking into some alternative ways of pushing back on this. While it's easy enough to remove threads and ban users, we'd prefer to find a solution that mitigates the spam in the first place.

Until we find a way to close the door to them further up stream, we'll continue to do our best to keep the site looking clean and spam free. For those of you who report spam when it pops up, we do very much appreciate it!

Your crew!

Aside from PM'ing an admin, is there another way to report it?

Just thinking out loud, if someone ends up with a negative number for reputation, is there a way to set a filter to automatically ban them? If so, once we see the spam, we can give them negative feedback and thus the filter would kick in a auto ban their ass.

I saw the posts and wasn't sure what to do. As reporting isn't an everyday occurrence. Good reminder!

You know there the rep button is on the bottom right of every post, the scale? Right next to it is like an alert icon, the triangle with the exclamation point. That's how you report a post.
