Olychick where are you? Seriously how do you report spam? It gets irritating to click on a thread only to find spam.

you go to "contact us" down at the bottom of the page, and in the drop-down list choose "abuse or violation". copy and paste the thread's URL and put it in the message. I do it all the time.

Also, when reporting spam, add the URL of "My Page" of the spammer, specially in the case of a long otherwise good thread being spammed. You want to identify the spammer.

Here's one I reported earlier today:

I love that a spammer this weekend called me out for "snitching" on her, on her three spammed threads!

I wish our people would pay attention to old threads being revived and quit adding on to them after they've been spammed. It just keeps the thread up longer, rewarding the spammer.

also important to watch to see if the "follow up replies will be sent to poster" is there. If you replay to the spam post to bump the spam thread down, and if your settings allow your real email address to show, then a spammer now has your email.
