Spammers - thanks to you!
 
Every week or so a doofus (or two) joins us, just to post some sort of spam message(s). Within minutes of the post(s) we (mods) start to receive 'reported post' warnings, and then we take action - the spam is removed, the ID is blocked from any further posting.

This team thing works quite well - in most cases spam lives here for only minutes.

I just wanted to thank you, and let you know that it works (reported posts).

We can't easily stop spammers from joining (I've tried), but we can make it a complete waste of their time - and we are doing that.

Thanks to you :woohoo:
