Keep reporting them, we cannot see every thread all the time.

Dahila, I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly, but I'll try to answer. If you see a new spam post appear that you haven't reported on previously, please do report it, but it's not necessary for one to report the same spam post again. I hope that answers your question.

One blessing in a sense is that all the recent the spam attacks we've been getting lately seem to be confined exclusively to the Aromatherapy section (although some of the more subtle ones make it into the Intro section). I automatically go to the Aromatherapy section first now whenever I log on in order to nip whatever spammy thing I can find there in the bud. For whatever reason, the url/address for that particular section has made it onto someone's mass spam attack list.

Edited to add- looks like Angie and I were cross posting. lol

Irishlass I would not report the same post twice, too many years on internet and forums.

I'm glad this post popped up - I had completely missed/forgotten about the report button ... yeah I know, it's got a bright red triangle around an exclamation mark and sits at the bottom of EVERY post ... you'd think it would have registered with me, but no ...

My excuse is I'm sick today ... cough ... cough ...

The modmins do a fab job. I agree, if you've reported one post by a certain spam user that you shouldn't report another by the same user - that second one will also disappear. But do report spam as quick as you can (said Dr Seuss)
