Spam reporting

Post by Gowermick » 09 Sep 2021 09:20

May I suggest we have a way of reporting spam posts?
We have two today from user “flvto” or something like that. One about Apps and another about youtube

Moderators will usually spot them quickly and deal with them (other mods, please remember to let me and Jane know if you deal with them so we can update the spam filter)

Just to add to Helen's reply, there is already a way of reporting a post if the moderators haven't yet spotted it. Click the Exclamation mark in the row of icons next to the post. There you can select your reason for reporting it.

Thanks to you both.
I hadn’t really noticed the exclamation mark, but now I know :D
