This evening I have noticed an awful lot of posts in the forums about football game live streaming. All them seem to only contain links to an external site.

Is this permitted, or is it spam under TOS and should therefore be reported?
I do not want to cause problems for anyone if it is allowed, but it is getting annoying and is not just tonight, either.
They are spam, and we report them all the time. I suggest reporting one or two of the spam messages, then go straigth to their profile and flag that as well.
It is spam and needs flagging - flag the profile while you are at it
Thank you. Have flagged the profile. Not even a link to the West Brom game! Now that is rude!

Yes. Have had gridiron posts, football posts, basketball posts... I just got sick of it.

Title says it all, really. Why not prevent people from posting to the forums unless they've written at least one hub? Most of these spammers don't have a hub to their name. It wouldn't sort the problem out...
