Post Reporting Spam
When spammers post in 7 or 8 different topics, how would you like us to report them? Should we report just one post so you don't get 7 different notifications, or should we report all of them? Is there a way to report the user themselves?

Just once is fine. That just gets us on the forums so that we can clean it up.

After that the real works starts. We hunt them down like the dirty dogs that they are and flog them to within an inch of their lives.

That's exactly how I feel feel after seeing "V14GR4" posts in 5 different forums, Xander. I imagine pressing that 'ban' button must feel sooo good.

Yeh, the first few times it's very cool but if you've banned your Nth spammer on a day then it gets a little annoying.

BTW, he was actually quite good at making up insults. Although, most people today wouldn't know what you're talking about, the way he worded them. Hmm, that means you could get more in without them noticing..... :lol:

Anyway, why the extra Mods all of a sudden?

I noticed we needed mods in some of our other forums. And I didn't want Xander to take all the fun of banning spammers.

Oh, and I know you're a great contributor too. :)
