    So, you want to spam linux.org do you? Before you click Create Thread let me tell you what will happen:
    1. Your post(s) will be uploaded.
    2. Someone notices the post(s) and marks them as spam
    3. A staff member of the site is notified of the post and uses the spam cleaner on your user account here on the forum.
    3a. Your IP is banned from the site
    3b. Your email account is banned from the site
    3c. Your post(s) are deleted from the site.
    4. I personally make sure your IP, email, and user account name are added to stopforumspam.com so you can't spam other sites.
    5. (optional) I laugh at you. A lot. And I chat with other staff members on other forums about your behavior.


    We, at linux.org, hate spammers. Take your crud somewhere else. Thanks.

    Why is it that spammers are always 18yo females? Is this some kind of conspiracy?

    Yep. They are out-of-control teens when their parents let them do whatever they want.

    I have been reporting spam posts when I see them. There was a period where I was reporting one to two a day.

    Should we tag and report these spam posts, or do the admins work to find and resolve them? I don't want to waste anyone's time wading through tagged posts if this is handled "automagically" behind the scenes.

    I do not know how Ryanvade finds spam, but I manage spam that users report. So, the reports you have made do help. Thanks, @unixfish .

    We at linux.org cannot be on all the time so marking posts is VITAL. It is very helpful.

    Thank you for helping us out.
