    Spammers

    Has anyone else noticed the increase in spam bots on this site? They usually have one to a h handfull of posts, they always have a link to some random website in the sig, and their posts always mirror other posts in the thread and have lots of errors. I couldn't find a report spam button. These bots are tricky but very clearly spam trying to hide as a real user but linking sites in sigs to increase search engine rankings.

    I'm not here to shop for kitchen cabinets from the UK. The shipping would be a bit much for me. Even though it's in the off topic category, the single-post user thing is annoying since they otherwise don't contribute.

    We need a "report" link to flag these types of messages/threads to the mods to help them take out the garbage.

    Yeah unfortunately we battle spammers all day every day. We do have a Report Post system built into the site. If you see a post in question look below the username of the person and below Posts you will see a little grey icon in the shape of a triangle with an "!" in it. Click on that and report the post. That will alert all of the mods and admins to the situation and we can then handle it accordingly

    Ah I didn't even notice the triangle, I was looking on the right hand side all over! How could I have missed that? Thanks!

    No worries! It is kind of hidden down there if you don't know about it

    Spam seems to be an increasingly frequent occurrence lately. I try to check daily and remove the slop, as do the other mods, I am sure. But don't forget you can notify us if you see a questionable post- Read this thread for more info...
