Brett I have a few questions.. I got on today and there is one person that has posted in almost every thread and or category. Is there anyway we can report a user instead of just when they decide to "blow up" the site? Also is there anyway that those of us that have been here awhile can get that time period that has to pass before you can post again sense I can't keep up with them. Just a thought.
Thanks,
Josh

There is no way to report a user...... just a spam post. And you do not have to report every thread that he has posted in. Once you report one of his posts, we see the user and delete him and every one of his posts in one motion. And I am not sure what you mean about the time period and people that have been here a while.

Brett,

I think 89 is referring to the 15second rule where you can't post in another thread until 15 (or so) seconds has elapsed. I've been hit by that rule a few times over the years.
