    Hey Folks,

    I'm sure the SF staff would appreciate it if everyone would take a moment to look at their wall postings in their profiles and delete any that are spam.

    I report them when I see them but, there's only so much I can do.

    You may now resume thinking about sex.

    Thank you.

    Mods, maybe this thread could be made sticky for incoming members to see?

    The spammers tend to attack wherever. It's not about who's important or what have you. We often find them on people who have a grand total of two posts.

    As BW said, just take a look anyhow. If you can't delete it, report it to us so we can.

    Look at the little flag, bottom left, below the test box. Just click.

    And also, Welcome to SF.

    Welcome :)

    If it looks odd, if it has links that lead to strange sites or sites that ask for your cc or other forms of payment. If they are posting phone numbers, email addresses etc.

    If in question, report it with the little red flag. If it's spam we will take care of it. If it's not, then we will leave it be. Nobody gets in trouble for reporting anything.
