I would like to personally thank those who report spammers using the Report tool. This helps a lot. We don't always catch them on our own and having the community being an extra set of eyes helps.

As an example, we recently got a report on a users profile. I checked them out and verified them as a spammer. As a routine, I always check for matching criteria to see if there were multiple accounts created. This time, I went down a rabbit hole. From that 1 report, I was able to purge/ban 6 spammer accounts as when I purged 1, the criteria matching caught up with another one.

So in one fell swoop, several were banned. We appreciate the communities help in helping to keep this community clean. Keep up the good work! (y)

Please make sure that when reporting spammers, you click the Report link next to the user or within the post. We received a report recently that included the whole thread. Just makes it a little confusing when we first open up the report.

Thanks again for help. 😎 👍
