Re: incoming spammer

I often use the report post button to report these obvious future spammers; but it seems like no action is ever taken until they actually start spamming.

I've noticed the same thing, and I've reported quite a few.

I'm not sure where those reports go, but I haven't received any of those. I'd be happy to take care of them if you contact me directly.

Same here. I think it's just a matter of admins not being around at that exact moment. From what I recall, mods can close/move threads or something like that, but only admins can ban someone.

Oh yeah, just PM Adam like crazy.

This is why I lay low.

Seriously though, you can PM me too. Work life has been pretty busy lately, so I'm probably checking my email account linked to my profile here only a handful of times a day.

FWIW I do see the spam RTP messages. The spammer is often times already banned by the time I get to it, so the RTP messages are getting through from what I can tell.
