Spam posts~what to do?

Posted by magothyrivergirl (My Page) on

When Spammers post - simply notify GW Admin and they will delete the offending SPAM - like this morning when an individual posted the same ad on many posts & started a new post full of SPAM.

How to notify GW Admin-

Scroll to the bottom of the Main Page of the Quilting Forum. Click on Technical Problems,
Under Nature of Message - click Abuse of our Forums.
Subject - Type Spam (or whatever)
In the message box, Paste the message ID that you have copied from the Offending Post.

GW Admin is very good at deleting the Spam if you notify them. Giving them the Msg ID makes it easier for them.

We seem to be getting alot of SPAM lately. Do not click on any links if you think the Post is not legit or SPAM.

I hope this helps!
