So, it looks like sometimes the spammers get through.

Is there a mod for phpBB that can let us report spam threads that could be implemented?

I usually just PM the admin account and the guys usually deal with it pretty quickly, but it would be good to have a report button, and ideally one that also flags the post up as having already been reported which would hopefully prevent multiple reports being generated.

A couple sneak in here and there, but I'll see what we can do SC. I know we appreciate helpful members like Cypher reporting spam to the Admin account. That's an easy way to get our attention.

Yes posting a note to Admin gets super quick attention.

I also like to post little images to let the spammers know we're onto them..

Yeah, I see you guys snagged the one I found this weekend. I was just wondering if there was a way to flag spam without having to track down a admin.

Glenn or Fran must have got him. I was in a small coma there for a couple days from all the tryptophan. I do know we just blocked another range that was becoming troublesome. I'm sure that will help as well. We'll keep thinking about the rest though.
