    I've banned about 1 person every 3-4 months on this site, except for one case, it was all due to spam.

    So if you see it, let me know.
    Spam gets you banned asap.

    Regards,

    There is also a "Report" button in the bottom left hand corner of each message. A lot of people are really good about simply clicking on that button and "reporting" spam.

    The neat thing about that button is that it instantly sends me an email message which allows me to simply click on the link in that email message which takes me directly to the offending post (which makes it really easy to delete) ...

    Thanks,
    Greg

    The "report" button only shows up with the "green fox" format for the forum. It isn't there for the other two formats, which I much prefer.

    Tom,

    The EI sticky seems to be getting hit with adverts for 'stuff'.

    I have seen this occur several times now. There is one on there now.......

    Will take care of it, it's because it's a well linked thread and attracts attention:cool:
