Default Re: Spam

It's better and maybe wiser to report spam using the exclamation box in the offender's name box to silently report it to Charlie the Admin. He does act on it but hasn't recently. Patience rather than posting a reply in the spammer's post to push spam up to the top of the forum list. Ignoring spam simply drops it down the list to eventually go away as long as everyone refrains from posting their displeasure in each spam thread. Posting displeasure in any spam thread automatically pushes the ad to the top of the forum list for more free advertising. Many have refrained and it shows as hardly anyone responds after reading/translating ads and spam. The most offensive posts are the blatant ads for illegal currency with anyone seriously interested in undermining America's monetary system by flooding the planet with false paper currency. The same applies to foreign currency to undermine other nations. Who knows as I already pm'd Charlie about it and wonder if this is a FBI/CIA/Secret Service attempt to bait anyone under false pretenses............
