I report posts as Spam?

Meaning? At this time of the evening I am usually taking a break from the easel or from writing and I'll waste some break time by perusing the community. This is when I see a boatload of spam posts being loaded up and so, with a slightly evil grin, I open each post with Ctrl-Click and take great pleasure in Reporting each one as Spam.

I wonder if the mods are getting more tired of me than the spammers? ;)

I would guess that you are doing them and the rest of us a favor by reporting spam, if it is spam. It's their job to delete it but you can report it all you want. There is usually so much of it it gets tiring for them after a while.

Dave, I report them to, and they disappear. What I don't get is seeing a bunch of views, and no one thinks to report it as spam? It's just one more click, folks.

Getting rid of genuine spam is good. What gives the mods a headache is when the report button is stupidly abused by childish people.

Well, I do consider the posts about skin cream to make you youthful again or how some supplement is going to make you the next Captain America to be spam and I do report those. Especially when you consider that they have nothing to do with writing our next ebook. As a matter of fact, I just reported another one before writing this reply.

I nuke the face cream and testosterone ads as well. I wonder if these spam merchants have ever received even one sale from their efforts here and, if not, why they bother to continue.

I can't believe my one-line comment here got modded, but the spam continues to get through. Good freaking grief.

Yep.

By the time I log in, most of the spam has been taken care of, so thanks to all who serve to clean up the forums. Saves my poor fingers a lot of work!
