No matter how amazing our spam prevention is, now and then a spammer gets through.

When you see a spammer, you can click on the flag, next to their post to alert me.

Another option (especially when it is a spammer posting multiple times) is to contact me via PM or via the “contact us” button near the bottom of the site.

Starting threads about the spammer doesn’t speed up the removal of the spammer and responding to the spammer actually makes my job a bit more difficult because I have to find and manually remove those posts too.

If you see a bunch of posts by a single spammer, you only need to flag one of them and then contact me. It helps me tremendously when you provide me with the username of the spammer if you use email private messages to alert me.

Thank you everyone.

Spammers and trolls…nothing worse. Thanks for everything Cricket. Have you asked JeffP to help out? Remember, he has lots of experience rooting out spammers and trolls. : )

Would it also help if we block the spammers or just flagging them is enough?

Flagging and/or PMing me works.

The new one is gone.
