Is there any point in reporting spam posts?
« on: August 10, 2020, 08:48:54 pm »
Since some time there is an increase in spam posts appearing here. There are basically two types of post, either the initial more or less nonsense post already contains the spam backlinks, or this inital post is free of links. A few days later the links get inserted into these posts. Most of the time these links are pretty obvious, sometimes they are integrated better into the text. Usually these accounts write only one or two posts, but just today one of these bots went crazy and posted 50+ at once.

I started to use the report function to report this posts, but even after some days, when the usual suspects on this forum have been active, these posts are still present. So i wonder if these reports end up at some dead end or there is just no time to process them.
