Self Defeating....

Now you have to wait 60 seconds before reporting posts? Kinda works against reporting those spammers. Seems to put the punishment on the reporter. Hope some picks up the slack.

Yeah I noticed that too. I only report one post now if there is multiple from the same sender. I figure the user gets banned/deleted so I just report one.

Sadly though there are usually several posters w/ several posts.. I only report one of each.. well only did report one of each.

Instead of instituting something like this, there should be a minimum post count or something similar before the signature option becomes available. I recognize that it won't stop everything but it would this particular type

I don't think any of these spammers are using sigs. At least the ones this morning are not using sigs. They just append the links to the bottom of their post. That is a good idea though for other ones.

All in all I think we have a pretty good setup already. The members know not to post to any of the spam threads and the spam is usually gone within a few hours.

They have had signatures lately....which is how I know it's spam. The sigs have nothing to do with the post.
