    Reporting spam

    I've looked around to try to find the procedure for reporting a spammer to the moderator team, but can't find how to do it. Confused

    Anyhoo, I found a spammer called canejackie who added a spam comment to the article called An Overview of Oerik back in 2008.

    I checked canejackie's profile and that seems to be the only thing they have ever posted. But it is a shame to have a spam cluttering up the bottom of a cool article and I'd like to get a message onto whoever can get rid of it.

    Whenever I discover a spammer, I send a PM to an administrator or two - Cebrion and Mortellan seem to be the ones who frequent the sight the most often. One of them always gets on it fairly quickly.

    This is the right way to report a spammer in Comments. Unfortunately I do not have access to deleting comments, otherwise this one, and quite a few others, would be gone. I could swear that malcontents have some way of knowing when I have my computer taken down (as it has been for two days) due to some home improvement project or other, or I am away on vacation or something, because it never seems to fail that something happens. One spammer already slain and eradicated. I'll look into the spammer comments a bit more (because, yes, they are annoying), and either get the access I need or have Gary chop away at these Comments.

    And thanks for the heads up. Smile
