How to deal with spam on the forum

January 10, 2012 | 6:20 pm

ndrewoods is a spambot. He keeps posting links to piano lesson sites on any forum thread that contains piano. Is there any way to report abuse, etc.?

His latest posting is a reply to a thread from four years ago and contains a link to a site for piano lessons.

When you’re logged in, you should see a "REPORT" link under each post. We don’t always catch them, so your help is appreciated.

I am logged in, but I don't see it. I'm using Chrome on OSX 10.6. Here's a screenshot.

Hmmmmm…not seeing it on Safari (5.1.1) either. No crazy javascript settings or stylesheets.

I believe it’s fixed. Will you take another look, please, and confirm?

Thanks,
Lilli

i´ve never seen that report button, i usually move spam to MISC.

p.s. reporting posts and users is not the same anyway. those bots which just answer to existing threads are quite annoying (as i cant move them to MISC, lol)
