    Hi Maddie,

    Some dropkick with the the username "rakeshkumar" just posted an ad for barbecues in the religion forum.

    Would you please wield the stick of moderation mightily upon his unworthy droppings?

    When you see posts like that, just click the link under them that reads "report."  That's what that feature is for.

    GOT HIM!

    Good morning.  Thanks for the heads up.  Relache is right, the best way to get me to notice these things is to click the "report" button on the bottom of the post, next to reply.

    I am extremely amazed at you guys being very helpful in making sure HP remains top of its class.  By the way, after reading pages and pages of the thread on hubs being flagged, I'm educated now. big_smile  hehe
