    There's a spammer in the forums today-what else is new?-and I wondered if it's necessary to report each and every thread.  It's all over the place.
    Is one report adequate?

      I usually report the profile which hits all the spam in one fell swoop smile

        spammer is everywhere in the internet and for me although you can avoid one there will be still followers for that...

      It'll take awhile, the staff are in California so they might not be in to delete.

        I am too, but does that matter?  Flightkeeper, should I go to each thread and report each and every one?
        Thanks.

          I've reported a couple. And I'm sure other people have. I don't know if they have software that deletes spammers or they manually process it.  If they haven't deleted by now, I'm not sure that reporting each and every one is going to delete them any faster.

      I do not blame the person at all for the threads he has started or the wares he is promoting.

      It's not his fault in all probability.

      Where the problem lies is unscrupulous marketers writing crap reports and blog posts about building links and promoting products.

      These people openly provide a blueprint to those un-initiated wannabees on how to make sales and how to get links. These reports are often sold for good money and their naive purchasers set about putting the blueprint in place.

      Hence, what we see as spamming our forum.

      That's the pity of it all.
