    I keep reporting it and they do seem to take it down right away. If everyone goes to "contact us" at the bottom of the page to report it that may help. Hard to block when the person keeps changing their names.

    Odd that someone from would post about nothing related to the sleeve, total nonsense. They need something better to do.

    It's probably a spam robot, not a real person.

    Thank you!

    But frankly, reporting is a pain in the *ss...
    You have to wait a minute between reports.
    I just want to click one after the other...
    With that much spam it would take about 30 minutes to report it all...

    I've reported it also. Makes you wonder if the spam can't be controlled by the moderator/administrator of the site; are we all at risk for our personal information to be found?

    Well the spam just keeps coming, so please help. Isn't there some formula for when a title makes no sense it can be blocked? The words are in English, but they are put together randomly.

    Of course it can be blocked.
    You can only write a message when you have registered.
    So just put an anti-spam robot device in the registration procedure.
    Please?
    Pretty please?

    I just PMd MediaHound to pose that question. SO -- they need to do something. I don't have time to go around the crazy spams to find the people who need support.

    Other sites have ways to block it. So its up to them.
