    Well done MSE!

    Spam posted 7.33pm. I reported it, and within two minutes it was an invalid thread. Quick work from the mods/board admin.

    Altogether I reported about five threads. Mothballs Wallet beat me to it on the others (thanks MB). I can't understand why spammers think that people will actually respond to numerous spam threads.

    I reported at least a dozen in the past 5-10 minutes.

    Keep spam bashing, it's relentless.
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    I am fed up of opening and reporting posts as spam. When are MSE going to spend some cash on some software to deal with it?

    Maybe a browser thing perhaps? I use Chrome, will try Internet Explorer later and see if the Spam Button is still there ...
