Whenever anyone posts anything on a spam thread (even something like "Why is this here?"), it moves the post to the top of the thread. Please, please... IGNORE THEM!

Thank you.

Everybody should know that by now. We were doing so well, too. It had 0 responses for a long time.

Once one is looking in the offensive (And I for one do find those posts extremely offensive!), one can click upon the {!} icon and "report the post". I wonder if there is a good way to be able to report offensive posts without going into them? I do get curious and wonder about some of these trolls. But I don't even want to go into their posts to click on their user name and find out how many times they have posted or what unrelated info they put in their profiles. In the last past few days, the same basic illegal post has shown up on several different headings. I do wonder how many headings they did post under? But I do NOT want to look in on them and add to their google counts (these jack@$$es earn points and money the more people click on their posts!), or move them up again!

What Dick L. said. Of course those posts should be dealt with, which I'm sure that the Admins will deal with them when they can. Please don't keep bringing them to the top. JMHO. Dave

Never have understood why people find these so bothersome. 90% of the threads
on this site do not specifically interest me. I just skip over the discussion of 1914
hub specs and move on to something I DO find of interest. Fake passports or free
money from Nigerian princes also fall into the skip-right-past category and there is
no time or skin lost. Easy-peasy.
More people are doing it today than ever before !

Just hit the ! Button and report it. I ban the user, and then delete them along with all their posts in one fell swoop.

And yes, don't post in the thread.
