This!!!! I'll report the first spammer that i see but never report any more than that because i don't want to wait the 120 seconds. which also takes up valuable whoring time!

If you report a post then we Kill off all the posts from that person, so you don't really need to report all of them. That way you don't have to worry about the 2 min rule.
as of late there will be several different users spamming though. For exmaple when i log in every morning i'll see a few different ones but i will only report the first one.

I use this guy when I come across some of the spammer threads.
Look below anyone's avatar. There's a yellow exclamation mark next to the green online button. Click it and you are reporting the post. It then asks you to type a reason.

Have a suggestion?

Hard to out think a live person the way that you would a Spambot. Prevent new members from posting? Would kind of defeat the purpose of people becoming members.

Re: Spammers

Do these spammers get paid per spam post or something?

Re: Spammers

Why not set it so when a mod removes it we don't see the deleted post so it doesn't fill up nearly the entire first page? They are all deleted, by why leave the history of it? One setting on the admin side would fix it so page 1 is information again instead of deleted posts?

It is not supposed to show for you all. We can't figure out why it is. Working on that
