He is back again. I just saw spam again from him. It's the same one. With the wow gold etc.
It's becoming pretty irritating.

Unfortunately that one keeps coming back through different logins and different IP addresses. So we ban each one but it just comes back on different details

Keep reporting them, we'll keep deleting them when we get reports (I can see Sue has already cleared it today).

What we need to keep in mind is that although we all keep saying "he", it's most likely an automated bot.

We have always appreciated the assistance of our OB members to help keep the board clear of spam...you folks just keep infracting (is that a word? ) and reporting and we'll do what needs to be done.

It's a team effort...and OB has THE best team ever!!!

Unfortunately all that does is bump the thread in the 'New posts' list so more people see it (especially if they are using the 'jump to first unread post' button to view the thread).

Best thing to do is report the post or even better given and infraction to the user so that it emails me and the other moderators to come and clear it up as soon as we can.

Without an infraction or a reported post I will only notice them when I get round to reading that far (if I have time to read that far) rather than getting rid of them as soon as I log in as I do with the reported ones and the ones with infractions. If I don't have much time to read in a day I might never notice the spam
