SPAM posts in Visual FoxPro

    Question

  • I've seen SPAM posts in Visual FoxPro forum two days in  a row. I haven't re-checked today and also didn't re-check if the one I marked yesterday was already deleted or not (I purposely left it in the forum).

  • It is best to mark just one spam post as abusive by each spammer, and not to delete. The forum admins have gotten much better. They ban the account, sometimes within minutes, which deletes all of their posts in all forums in bulk. If they don't deal with it in an hour, I mark another post. They complained when I marked all of the spam posts as abusive, saying it confused them and they couldn't keep track.

  • Let me re-check now if that thread is still there or not. 

    UPDATE. Yes, the thread is deleted by MS stuff and the user is banned.
