    There’s a HUGE amount of Spam across the boards today, including lots on this board. If you see one - it will be very obvious- please press the button.
    Hi. Martin has asked me to tell you I'm a (novice) Board Guide on the Competitions, Site Feedback and Campaigns boards.

    I've not noticed any at all.

    If it happens again, it might be worth also mentioning what MSE say about not quoting posts:
    • What's spam?
      Forum users mustn't post comments more than once on the forum (the only exception is members of the MSE Team; when needed). It's called spamming and most internet forums forbid it. Where spam is reported to the Forum Team, the posts are deleted and the user's posting privileges may be removed. Please don't quote any post you believe is spam, as this causes the team more work.

    Given how many of them are immediately visible from the front page can't a SPAM button be added for pressing without having to open them ?
