    Default What to do when "bad/inappropriate ads" or "spammers" post on our site

    Hey everyone,

    From time to time you will see spammers on our site. These spammers are going to post links to other sites, or try and sell some product. It will look something like this example:

    Hello I am selling you this. Please visit this site. Click my link to buy my stuff!!
    (Don't worry the link I posted is safe - it takes you to the home page). When you see these threads, please do NOT post on them. Just like any other bad thread, it simply puts them to the top of the forum. When you do this, it brings it to the attention of more people, makes it seem much more successful to the company, and may make them continue to post here.

    Spam is unfortunately just a part of the process of running/owning a forum now a days. The best way for you to fight it is to report it and move on. Don't post on the thread, don't link it to everyone, don't click the link. Just report it, let the staff know what it is (spam) and we'll deal with it ASAP.

    Thanks everyone.

    Thomas Edison's last words were 'It's very beautiful over there'.
    I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.

    Thanks, Ashley! I saw a few threads on here, like the ones you just described, the last couple of months, and I didnt know what to do, so I just reported them.
