Do you flag and report hubs and/or forums obviously posted by spammers? If so, on your weekly digest, do you see where it says " Your Moderation Reports: We greatly appreciate the content you reported ... Here's a quick update on their status." Then you go over to the columns and see how many have been reported, no longer published and/or users banned. My questions are: 1. How's your track record? Because lately mine has been "ZERO" in "no longer reported" and "Users banned" especially for forum spammers. 2.Does HP appreciate the report? 3.Is it a waste of time since nothing is being done?

The results are private betw You & HP and are on your weekly digest. Although I flagged about 10 last week, the digest said I only reported 1. They didn't moderate it or ban that user. All 10 are still up in the forums. So...I flagged 'em all ag
ThelmaC - Thank you for your honesty and for commenting.
LOL. I guess I'd be even happier if HP noticed (weekly digest) so that I don't feel this empty sense of gratification on this end. This site has so much spam. I wondered how many were flagging and if our little contributions made a dent. TY for reply
I never thought of it that way. I guess I'd rather see that everyone who reported spam got the % added to their stats.
It should be listed under your weekly stats on the Weekly Digest they send to you. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who flags. Sometimes it reminds me of the Whack-a-mole game my grandchildren play. Bam, got another one! lol
As far as I understand, all flags and reports are anonymous and do not affect any scores. I appreciate your answer.
