There's a report button in the top right corner of every post, it looks like an upside down yield sign. You can click on it to make reports like this.

BTW, I've reported one of this guy's posts already.

judging by what they are adding posts to I doubt its a spammer per se, I suspect its a spam bot, a far nastier proposition because they just keep coming back no matter what you do. they don't take the hint when their posts get binned, they just create a new userid and keep on spamming

Yep, just like my good friend, headlem said, they're a constant nuisance. Sometimes we get 'em, sometimes they get through. You guys do a great job reporting them. Just hit the little triangle with the "!" in it in the upper right corner of the offensive post & it'll send an email to the moderators & admin.

It might take a little time to respond, but we'll get 'em...

I used the little red triangle the other day, and I PM'd the moderator 'Bear'. Think PM'ing was a little overkill, the spammer was removed pretty fast.
I'll stick to the triangle instead of giving the spammer free advertisement and posting it here.

Yeah, just click the little triangle in the upper right corner of the spammer's post & one of us will get him. Just have a little patience, we have jobs & lives outside this forum, so sometimes it takes awhile...
