Guys, when you spot a spam/advertisement thread/post, use the report button, report it and leave it alone. Don't go in and reply like a lot of you've been doing lately; you're only doing the spammers a favour by bumping the threads. I'm not sure why there's been such an influx of these damn spammers lately, but alas, we depend on you reporting them so they can be removed.


tl;dr: report spam threads and please do not reply to them.

For those who have the Voodoo theme (such as I) the Report button is on the left in Profile section. Little round button saying Rep. Just thought id shed some insight!

Spam threads invite us to spam them. Everyone wants to spam, it's like a dark, forbidden urge. Where are we going to act out if you take this away from us?

Why, John? Why?
