Does this forum software have a feature for reporting spam posts?  There's been a small rash of them lately, and it'd be nice to get them cleaned out.

I've done a little research, and apparently there is a "report to moderator" feature.  This would be a convenient way to deal with the recent signature-spammers.

Dafydd says that there is a "Report to Moderator" link at the bottom of each post, but I'm darned if I can find it!

I can't find it either (!) but Dafydd is working on it. In the meantime I've deleted most if not all of the postings I consider to be spam. In general, I would ask new members to make their interest in a particular Barrie-orientated topic apparent. Simply writing "Hi there I'm new here" or "I agree" might result in the user being blocked -- my apologies if this has already happened to any bona fide member.

I see it and I'll be glad to use it (when the occasion arises!)  I hate seeing a nice forum like this one taken over by idiots!

I must say that things are looking a LOT better now.  No more post about young ladies who are interested in performing uh interesting acts!

I've upped the security with new registrants in the hope to deter single posts. Hopefully this will also help a little.
