As many of you have noticed, the boards have been hit with an incresasing amount of spam in the past few weeks. I'm doing my best to keep up with these postings, delete them, and ban the users responsible.

If you see a spam posting, please help me manage it by doing the following:

1) Do not respond to the spam post. Bumping the thread only gives these people more exposure, which is exactly what they want.
2) Report the spam post to me, either via the reporting interface, or by sending me an email at forgemoderator@hotmail.com

Also, do not respond directly to the spam poster via email. All that will accomplish is getting you on their spam list.

Thanks,

Moderator.

Moderator--I thought I'd help out a bit and give more detail on what you mean by "bumping" in case folks don't know what that means. Hope you don't mind!

Whenever you respond to a post, you "bump" it up to the top of the thread list by keeping it "fresh." Not responding to a thread keeps it from getting bumped to the top.

Heck, I've even responded to other threads to bump them up and send the spam post into the abyss.

No "post whoring" though!
