I agree and why is BF so late at catching it.The last game this happened on,i sent pm but it took a day later before he got back to me,unacceptable.Since BF sold out things have not been the same.They don't seem to be looking out for their customers.I won't touch them either.

Hi everyone,

Thank you for bringing the spam to our attention. The first thing the moderators do when they get into the office in the early morning is clear out the spam posts, so thank you for your patience as we work quickly to get this removed.

The posting of spam is often automated, and we're definitely looking into ways to try to prevent it from happening at all. We wouldn't recommend clicking on any unfamiliar links, or any links that may be included in any of the spam posts.

For future reference, it's really helpful for us to clear out the spam faster if you just click on the ! in the top right corner of the post. With enough reports, this will remove the spam from appearing in the threads until we can get into the office and delete it.

While we do understand how frustrating it can be to see all of the spam suddenly appear, we do ask that users not create new posts/threads in the Forums that discuss spam. This will help us to streamline our current process and will also help to keep the Forums tidy instead of adding on to the issue at hand.

Since this thread discussing spam has been addressed, I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread.

Please PM one of the moderators if you have any other questions!
