Hi all,

I've recently noticed there are certain members that are posting 'adverts' for online shops not at all related to pentax/photography. I uploaded a few photos into the gallery and have just noticed a member (ccdeal6) has posted one of these 'adverts' in the comments section! Is there a way of reporting these people and posts?

Thanks.

I saw that the same user had put 5 or more spam message on the board. I PM'd JR as I could not see the Report Problem tucked away at the bottom!

A report or PM is fine, we get spammers all the time though and they will get noticed.

Some only last minutes, some survive a little while till we check again, but they all go the same way - delete, maximum delete....

John - please accept my abject apologies for not spotting the spam that TRENT900 was talking about. I'm trying to avoid processed meat at the moment!!

I come across with them frequently and immediately report them, and John immediately deletes them. Thanks, John.

Me too. They're a nuisance but are easily ditched!
