    Default How do you report spam?

    I started off just putting the word SPAM in the report text field. I imagine the task of tracking these down and taking corrective action must get tedious for the Mods, so lately, I have been trying to be more creative to try to bring some levity. Here's a couple I've used:

    "Spam! And not the kind you eat. The kind that clutters up our beloved forums!"
    or
    "Sensors indicate a large mass of Spam. Set Phasers to charbroil! Fire the Ketchup torpedoes!"

    It got me pondering, (which isn't always a good thing! ) about:
    1. What do others write?
    2. Do the mods actually read the text sent in the reports or do they just see the report and zap the offending thread into oblivion and be done with it?
    3. Would the mods consider posting what they consider the top 10 Spam report write ups at the end of the year?

    Discuss.

    There should be a little exclamation mark in a triangle at the bottom of a post that you can use to report it

    Yes, yes. I supposed I opened myself up to that one.

    Well, I don't know about the others but if it's obvious that it is spam I just ted to zap it and get on with life so I think I might have missed a few good ones. Secondly several reports on the same thread stack so if you're 2nd or 3rd reporting I'm not likely to read the comment.

    Clearly, you like to fry your spam before del-eating it. Okay, okay. I'll stop now.

    2. Sometimes read the comments, depends on how much time I have.

    3 HELL NO. Not being nasty, I have far better things to do and a mountain of lead to do it with.
