They do, and when they realize they can stay here for a week at least without getting detected, they'll post. MIKEY! Get yo' ass down here!

Those people want something,$ and they are not bots,they are paid for selling us crap.With the economy they will do any kinda work-they are the NEW FLAKES! It's hard to fight people who have the right to post! But you have luck and smarts on your/our side to just Ignore.So sorry ladies,there seems no other alternatives,other than to quit or Ignore for now.Thats what I do to relieve the stress!Then we all dance to FZ's songs!!! :mrgreen:

That is pretty obvious. I view their post solely for the purpose of reporting it. The problem is that when some, like this latest one, post many messages and it starts to mess up the Active Topics list. That's hard to ignore.

I'm not a big internet forummer, so I only know what I've heard from others, but some forums have several moderators who do shifts and spammers get spotted pretty quickly and turfed out. Here we only have Mikey and he knows about these spammers but we can't expect him to be here 24/7.

He doesn't even appear here on a daily base. I stopped flagging such mail because some of them contain nasty images and I really don't want to be confronted with those, let alone have them on my PC.
A handful of Spam Chuckers should do the job, but I'm sure anybody who's experienced that on larger, less-intellectual and less controlable forums than this one will have had nasty moderator experiences. Such people need to be chosen carefully.

Whenever I find them here, I send a nice, polite post to them like "Fuck off Spammer" or something to that effect. I also send an email to the administrators to let them know to look for them. They are assholes, but obviously, hard to get rid of.

Don't reply to the spam. Simply flag it, and I'll remove it.

Click that little red exclamation mark in the bottom right corner of the spamful post.
Then choose the type of spam it is, from the drop-down list, and click "Submit".
