Y'all, do me a favor and don't respond to spam posts at all. The people who post the spam will never see your response anyway, so it's useless. At the bottom of every post, there's a little icon (shaped like a triangle) to let you report a post. Please that instead.

When a spammer posts, the admins and mods can use a thing called Spam-O-Matic, which blocks the spammer forever, and reports them to a central database. That allows other spam blockers to see who they are, and take steps to block them.

But if you respond with another post, then the admins and mods have to go in and clean up YOUR post, as well as the spammers. We don't want to Spam-O-Matic you, because you'd then be blocked forever. But it causes more work for us.

Thanks.

Thanks for posting this......especially since I'm one of the guilty parties. :eek:hmy: And all along I thought I was doing you a favor by calling your attention to it. Consider me chastened!
 
No problem. It's not like the icon is intuitive or anything!
 
You're too kind. One would think that as long as I've been on the Forum that I would know about it.
