What to do when you see a spam message

Post by The Monkey Man on Sun May 03, 2009 2:24 am

Greetings,

This thread explains what to do when you see a spam message on the forums:

  • DON'T REPLY TO THE MESSAGE. Spammers can track replies and when they get one, they return for more spamming.
  • Report the message by PMing a moderator or administrator. When they recieve the PM, they can ban the spammer.
  • Don't point it out to the entire forum. This just makes it worse.<li>If it is a chain letter (eg. Post this ten times within the next two minutes or you will turn into a pigeon), do NOT spread around the chain letter. This just makes it worse.

This doesn't apply to the SPAM! thread in the Activity forum, that thread has had granted permission.

Thanks,
Sonic Site Administrators and Moderators
