    We have defiantly noticed an increase in spam and have taken a few small measures to help deal with it in a timely manner however the bottom line is, there really is no way to stop it completely right now. This spam problem has not just hit this forum. Many blogs have also noted an increase in spam posts.
    The best way to help us all right now is to make use of the report post option. Using that button sends emails to the appropriate people notifying us that a post has been reported. We are a growing forum and are open to ideas and do make changes.

    No one ever did answer my question, When I chunk a pile of links into a report, do they come up as useable links in the E-Mail that gets sent?

    I have done it a couple times and report them all at once and save some staff some space in the spamreport boxes and as a means of evading the ten second thing during heavy flow from a single bot.

    Hmm, well, I'll put it this way. I've never had a link say it was bad. So I guess it works. lol

    Ah cool, I feel better being able to do it all on one fell swoop, I assume it will proove easier on the staff dealing with the spam too.
