Reporting commercials et al.

I have reported lots of companies that signed here.

Ok; the staff here deleted their membership, but I think a simple "thanks" to me would be nice.

Just a thought.

Re: Reporting commercials et al.

Maurizio, as far as I know this is an automated process. As soon as a certain number of members have reported a member or a review as spam, it will be deleted automatically. - So keep on reporting them, there is also a forum here where you can list the spammers for others to vote.

It is here:

Re: Reporting commercials et al.

Shavy, I was about to say pretty much the same thing. I've been an active member of this site for maybe a decade. I report spam most times I pop by, because it's the right thing to do. Mauritzio, the owners of the site are volunteers, who are still trying to keep this up in their spare time- they barely have time for basic maintenance (although mostly do a great job of that). Personalised thank you notes to the literally dozens of people reporting the baddies every day would be a huge thing to ask. But if you join the spambuster club thread, there is a bit of a community building up around our most active and enthusiastic reporters of nonsense and you might enjoy that.

Well said, Sarah, and all members are welcome to The Spambuster Club. The more members participate, the more spam reports help in keeping the site as spam free as possible.
