Default SPAM reporting, again.

No long winded message, just a word or two like "SPAM!" as the message is connected to the thread. This way no one bumps up the spam post (prolonging the post) by posting complaints in the thread voicing their displeasure, the spam falls by the wayside (by never responding to it) until Charlie gets to your silent pm/e-mail and/or eliminates it when he checks in. Try it, it works.
Once again, a simple act, instead of responding to the SPAM thread and bumping it to the top.........................

Do you really think these spammers read these threads? All they do is drop their spam ad here and now wait for anyone clicking on their link. You'd do more to click on their link and tell them what you think, filling up their message boards instead of filling up uselsess threads here. Think about it.

I think it helps if there are no replies for the 1st person who reports it to simply post, "Reported", so that others will know and Charlie doesn't have to deal with too many complaints about the same post. Once I see that it is reported, I usually move on (unless there is something further worth commenting on, which there usually is not).

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I agree totally but there are those that are compelled to post their personal comments, not realizing the futility in continually bumping the useless thread back up to the top!? Simply ignoring them seems to be impossible to some of us........................
