Reporting Problem Posts to the Moderators
 
Just a quick heads-up to all the recently registered members and a quick reminder for the old-timers:

If you see spam, or a post that needs the moderators' attention for ANY reason, please click the "Report" button. This is a little red and white triangle in the upper right-hand corner of each post.

Do not respond to spam, and please do not report problem posts via the PM system or on the mods' public profiles.

Thank you.

I got an email indicating there was a response to my "greetings" introductory thread and it was full of spam and links.

I went to the thread in question, and there was no new message. The email was listed as being from webmaster@polyamory.com.

Are you sending me spam or is someone hacking your site?

The user name was Helfaftersvet

If a spammer posts in a thread it will generate email notifications according to the settings in one's control panel, just like any other post.

The reason it is no longer there is because a moderator (such as myself) took care of it.

Don't take the spam personally.

Wow you are really fast at taking care of the spam!!

I didn't take it personally, I just wanted to let you know in case there was a problem. Thanks

Please do not take the spam personally. Don't respond to it, and don't quote it.

Just wanted to thank all the Mods for taking care of the excessive spam that has been appearing lately. I am impressed at how fast it disappears and the amount of work you guys must be doing to take care of it. Let's hope it goes away soon.

That's not even counting the ones i delete before they even make a post! It's easy to recognize them because their usernames are usually un-pronounceable and their profiles are filled with nonsense.

The reason I am able to provide this kind of service, remember, is because I am home on short-term disability. When I go back to work, you might have to wait a little longer.

Thank you.

Replied here just to bump this thread nearer to the top, so that other newcomers get to find this advice more easily...

...and to say these thanks are just as deserved now, regrettably the spam has not gone away yet...
