    New spammer flagged--kirixcena. One last night was arshxcena. I guess there's no way to block people from joining if they have nonsensical names, like ending in "cena", is there?

    All these spammer accounts sound like names for prescription drugs.

    Let's talk about spam.

    I don't know what it is we "need to talk about" concerning spammers? We don't like them and the mods are making their best effort to keep them away. What's there to discuss?

    How about the different flavours they come in? ;)

    Spam in a thread that's meant for combating spam/spam threads. Excellent.

    Been noticing a few threads I suspect of spam recent.

    Sorry if this has been covered before, but I'm not sure how we flag them, notify our mods, or how that works?

    I almost don't want to click on the suspected threads in fear of being hacked and all my MI6 info going to Raoul Silva to post on Youtube.

    So exactly what's the protocol for these threads?

    Flag away @ToTheRight , that’s the protocol. Even if you’re unsure we can look into it and confirm one way or the other.
    I don’t think it will effect you or your personal detail.

    @ToTheRight
    It's quite simple, really. You have two options, and both are completely anonymous (except to the mods, of course.)
    1. Since it's perfectly safe, dive into the threads you suspect of being spammy, and hit the 'flag' button in one of the obviously spammy posts. Write your suspicions down. Only the mod team can see the flag and read your comment.
    2. If you don't want to click on a certain thread, PM a mod or several mods. Say what you feel like saying; you'll be doing so in absolute confidence. We'll take a look for you.

    @NicNac, @DarthDimi
    Thanks guys!

    Looks like somebody might have beat me to it. Don't see the suspected thread now. I'll keep my eyes open.

    Yes, I noticed that. Date @ToTheLeft , Postcount @InTheMiddle and Flag @ToTheRight .

    Consider him flagged.

    Bringing this thread forward.

    Drop a comment in here if you suspect more of the same filtering through. Spammy threads, or bots etc.

    There was a spam thread a few days ago by who I suspect was a returning long-time troll but it was closed by a mod.

    No bother. I'm glad to see that you and @Benny have recently been made forum administrators as well. That should help iron out any issues more quickly and give you more powers to get things done.

    Having access to the right buttons to press will certainly help.
