    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.

    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 ...

  • Many saying sexism or ego. My suspicion as someone who works in TV is that this is a format point. I'd think whe? https://t.co/AXfrv5YqKA

  • I do always ponder when watching apprentice why Lord Sugar is "Lord Sugar" but Baroness Bradey is Karen. #bbctheapprentice

  • Lord Sugar just said "she's talking like she's a 50 year old, she knows it inside out?" Genuine question if ther? https://t.co/6cZJ9d2Cni
