    We have a persistent spammer. We are continuing to take measures to combat this, including the use of 3rd party moderation via this account.

    We have also instituted a form of community moderation whereby members can help deal with spammers. From now on, if you you see a blatant spammer, please give them a negative reputation point by clicking on the reputation icon [​IMG] above their post and filling out the popup as shown in the example below.

    Once every hour, new members who have received negative reputation points from at least two other members will be automatically moved to a moderated group.

    *******Do NOT give negative reputation unless you are sure the person is a spammer*******

    Repeat: Negative reputation should NOT be given because you don't like what someone is saying or for any other reason except that the person is a spammer.

    You must have at least 50 forum posts to give negative rep. Established members are protected from getting moderated based on negative rep.

    Thanks for your help!
