Thanks for the heads up, I've banned this spammer now :).

If you happen to spot a spammer, there should be a "report" button either on their posts, a profile comment or even their member profile. Once that is clicked, all the mods and admins get an alert, so one of us can zap it super quickly :D.

It looks like we've had a few spammers sign up this week, not sure why they've have been so many this past few days. I'll see if there's anything in common I can use to tweak the spam filter a bit.

Thank you @Ian i have used the "report" option which is easily found if the spammer posts, and i did look for the same option in this case but could not find it when i pulled up the profile page. Now that i know it is there somewhere i will take a closer look and i'm sure i'll find it. Yes, i have noticed how quickly you all can zap spammers. It is awesome! :)

Probably with so many of us heading into winter, they are not getting the business they were before. Spamming forums is the new version of cold-calling. :cautious: :rolleyes:

:) I've noticed, too.

You know what struck me as so funny about this particular spammer @MaryMary ? The call themselves
"Designers of Vertical Gardens" but the products they use are all artificial like plastic ivy, etc

What are they thinking to target Garden forums?

@Beverly, who knows? :confused: Why would someone take the time to open so many threads - just to show walls of Chinese text to an English-speaking forum?! :cautious: And under two different names, no less!! :eek:
