Hi Guys,

Please do not reply to spam posts - it makes it more annoying for us mods to delete them. Please report them (some of you very faithfully do that and it's appreciated!) and then one of us will delete it - whoever logs on first.

When you reply to posts we mods can not delete the thread, we have to delete the posts individually first then delete the thread.

Thanks for helping us make the community better!

Perky, we report it in "Notify"? can't see any "flag" or "report" option here...

Yes, we must report spam posts to keep the forum integrity very high. Spam posts are often focused on selling a product or bragging about income in some fashion.

No I don't think it can be stopped completely but if we all "notify" the moment we see them, without commenting on the thread, it will make it much easier for the mods to deal with them. smile

Thanks everyone!

spam is also stealing content from other sources and posting it here just to get links like you are doing.

in fact this post of yours is stolen from here

Hmmm...the "or bragging about income" sounds like someone we know.

LOL!

I just went through and of the 36 posts created by deepikasnv only 3 remain - they actually make sense to the conversation and add some sort of value. Everything else was just nonsense drivel.

It is nice to see that the effort is made on here to get rid of that stuff. Some of these forums are horrible for the nonsense they allow!
