    Please do not reply to spam, or something that looks like spam. It makes more people look at the thread, and on top of that, makes it a moderator's nightmare when there are several threads on it.

    Makes for verrrrry cranky mods, especially at 4:30 a.m.

    Just click the report button and be patient.

    I would like to add a note on Spam posts.

    The spammers are getting very creative in their posts of late.

    One way to tell it is spam is when there is a signature with a link or url in it (specifically in regards to a new member). If you see a post with either of these two, please report it as spam and one of us will take a look at it. The post itself may look legit, but chances are it is not.

    As Adrynalyne has already stated, please do Not respond to it.

    Thank you.

    Just had to re-enter this again as I have noticed replies to spam again, while you may think a few spams say 10 is bad, it is , however what you all dont see is the vast amount we remove either before you see it as we know the types of IPs and user names that folk use, to majority of it entering our filter so is moderated and no-one sees it bar the moderation team.

    This from Abbysue sums it all up (was posted a year or so ago so a timely update)

    Please note dont start a lounge thread on this, just read and digest, nothing is served by going over all this spam stuff again, forget about spam, its a pain and will never stop.

    Cheers :)
