    That's the way I always thought it worked.

    Re: Report spammers here

    Just got another New Delhi spammer - it registered at 0931, posted spam in the Lounge at 1146 and was permabanned at 1149.

    "zenoliya"

    When you guys see something with a bunch of gibberish critique-looking crap and links to "watch xxxyyyzzzaaa online ....." Please report it immediately. Use the little black triangle ! icon in the lower left corner of the offending post.

    Cool, thanks.

    Now how about an iPhone 5 update to take care of the bigger screen?

    Yes, Mods also get an email that there is a reported thread. That is a MUCH better option.

    What Sub is was in response to me clicking on the triangle with the ! in the middle. Well actually I was on the CadillacForums app and used the "Report" button in it. I left a little note for him, or whoever, to reply to this thread with an answer. Several minutes later Sub responded.

    Still, wouldn't want to see this thread die off now that we know about this Triangle. Even though it's been there for years or what not. Still be nice to see this thread get some play.

    But I must say, even though the links stay "alive". They are actually redirected to a message saying that the page is no longer valid of some sorts. I know this, because before talismandave's posted link was removed. I clicked on it to see what happens and it just brought me to that message screen. Wish I took a screen shot.

    Re: Report spammers here

    The deleted links in these posts and where it took you when you clicked them BEFORE I removed them - True. The CF membership would see a sort of "no good" message - but the staff would get a redirect to the link which remains in the server archive. I merely deleted one more step to get to the original - and if need be, Admin can still do that.
