OK, let me explain how spammers work. They post things to get folks to click on them where hidden/invisible URL's may get email addresses and other cookies from their web browsers.
They don't come back and read your replies.
They certainly don't come back and check all the other threads to see what people are saying about them.
Making replies, or creating other posts about spam just impacts **us** -- the other folks on this forum.
Here is what some of us have decided to do about the spammers -- you can participate if you wish.
When someone posts spam, we use the little red triangle icon to report it as spam to the moderator Scot, and post ONE REPLY saying we have done so.
Everyone else is asked to just read it if they must and not reply -- that way not a bunch of folks get lured into looking at what they don't want to see, and we don't do the spammer's work for 'em.
Nobody is required to do this, but it can make the Forum a better place and helps get rid of the spam postings ASAP.
