Even our lovely si-community has to deal with potential spam threats. We’ve recently changed our policy for registering, as the old way wasn’t user-friendly enough. Our less strict policy concerning registering raises the spam threat considerably.
Our policy concerning spam itself, however, stays the same: any post that is deemed spam results in deletion of the post, obviously, and immediate deletion of the user account also.
As our new policy concerning registering makes registering for spamming purposes only easier, we now turn to you, to help us detect spam as fast as possible. To this end a dummy account called “nospam” has been created. If you consider a certain post spam, click the PM button below the post and send the resulting PM to the user named “nospam”.
Obviously, in the end, we decide what’s considered spam and what not, and crying wolf too often might be considered spamming also and could eventually result in deletion of your own account…

This is an unpleasant part of any webforum. Hopefully your vigilance can help us successfully and painlessly fight spam just slightly more effective…

Thanks in advance for your cooperation…
