Hi Ladies,

I'm thinking we need a game plan with regards to spammers or advertisers.

Replying to them just gives them "air time" at the top of our 'View New Posts' and that's exactly what they want.

Rather than reporting them and then posting "Reported" can we all agree to jump on them and report them the minute we see them and then ignore them, without replying, until their topic is either deleted by our beloved Tim or just disappears from the boards.

We all agree to report spammers or advertisers to Tim but only the FIRST person who comes across their garbage will post on their thread that they have been reported to ensure others know it has been spotted and dealt with.


What do you think?
The "Ayes" will have it wink.gif

Aye, but you won't get everyone to comply!

The obvious ones are easily ignored, but it is the more insidious ones that often get replies before people realise they are advertisers in a not-so-subtle disguise.

I actually disagree, but only slightly. I think the first person who sees it should report it and respond with "Reported", then after that nobody else is to respond.

Otherwise Tim is likely to get 50 "Reported" as we won't know if it's been done.

I take a different approach on this.

I've gone to a couple of the websites and if they have a forum or comments section I write an abusive post about how low they are to come and post their spam and filth in a forum section for grieving/TTC/getting relationships help etc.
