I always miss the spam posters cos of the time difference, but I think I just found one - yuio778o - they're posting a lot of Harry Potter stuff.

I'm unsusre if jameshopes is a spammer. There is only one post which does seem like a proper question but the links take you to a "we will write an essay for you" site which to me seems like a spammer.

Best not to advertise the spammer's posts - that's what they want. Just say nothing and hit the 'Report' button at the top of the message.

Don't worry, Manufacture, my finger has been busy, those will soon be gone. :P

Good thing I'm SO bored at work that I keep logging on here... :oops: :P

Already deleted one today and two yesterday before they could post, we're getting a steady stream of them. Sad gits.

It's the triangular thing with what looks like a ! in it, Dips. It alerts an admin/moderator to the post.
