Dont Post in Spam Threads

Unread post by chris_stoffa » April 24th, 2015, 5:53 pm

From what the mods have suggested , don't post /reply to spam threads - just report the thread via the little Triangle logo with the " ! " in it

Apparently replying / posting to the spam makes it harder for the Mods to get rid of them and it creates a feedback to the spammers to know that they have successfully hit the forum.

Ive already reported the original spam post.

This is just for info - not meant to infer anything :thumb:

Seem to be having another run of spam but as Chris has suggested not replying to spam posts and just reporting will help us get rid of them quicker.

Replies keep them at the top of the page and potentially get other members interested in having a look, which may not be a great idea as they usually point to dodgy stuff. Not a big drama, we spot them and squish them all the same. Most of them are posted by robots or dudes in salt mines so any replies are not going to be seen by the original poster anyway.

I would just like it reported for posterity purposes that - i did not post any replies in today's raft of spam threads! :lol: :lol:

(No truth in the rumor I might have sent a email asking how much for a fake drivers license, in a fake name tho!) ;) :D

Hey - you never know? :lol:
