Default Spammers again

Lots over in the general discussion section. Why are new spammers trusted to post links, yet loyal member Waiex191 can only report one every 60 seconds?

New members can post as many times with the same privileges as you and I. The best way to handle spam is never replying in their thread as all this does is boost them to the top of that forum list. Simply do as you, I and several others here do - click on the offenders exclamation box to open a complaint page and simply type 'spam' then submit. Silent reporting denies these offenders posts by eventually ending up at the bottom of 'unread' threads. Yes, I've encountered the same time outs when attempting to report several offenders. I believe it's done to reduce nuisance reporting if it's not genuine. Being patient and reporting another offender usually means good intentions and ultimately Charlie's discretion to determine genuine from false reports.

They should give us super powers to ban spammers. I promise not to abuse it!

For some reason I can't get to SaturnFans on my wifi. Only on mobile data.

Default Re: Spammers again

At home, I use my tablet on wifi when I'm in the 'library'. Sometimes in the garage when I'm working on my car and take a break, checking in to SFs. Most times (my broken wifi switch on my laptop) I'm connected to a network cable. Away from home, I setup my phone for hotspotting to use my tablet (bigger screen compared to the tiny cellphone. No issues wifiing my tablet and SFs.

Perhaps an antivirus software is interfering?
