    Thumbs up Thanks Mike!



    ((((((Mike))))))

    Thanks for ousting that spammer I reported. I could see it spreading from forum to forum, like a nasty virus (cold and flu season, you know), and I wanted those spammer germs out of here! And they were! Pronto! I'm sure you sprayed the entire BT community with Lysol!

    You are awesome, Mike!

    Love & Light,

    I'd say "you're welcome" but it was mod #5 that squished the spam roach with a mighty swing of the ban hammer. All I saw was a leg and a SpLaT!
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    Thank you for chasing out that intruder, and for all of your behind the scenes work.

    You're very welcome. I had banned the spammer, and was in the process of removing the threads, when you posted the report.
