How to deal with spam on the forum


    Jan 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. https://cycling74.com/forums/piano-pitch-detection

      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)
