Good job, folks.

When the immature squad hit New Mombasa today, a great number of you did the right thing and messaged me (I'm sure stosh and yoozel recieved messages as well). My inbox had 23 new messages when I got on! Great work. However, some of you seem confused as to what is the right thing to do when spammers raise hell. Here's a quick go-over of proper anti-spammer etiquette: Do's: 1. [b]IGNORE THE SPAMMER[/B] 2. Message SketchFactor, Achronos, Frankie, or one of the mods. 3. Wait patiently for the mods to come and clean up the mess. Don'ts: 1. Reply to the spam in any way shape or form. 2. Start new posts or polls that have anything to do with the spammer. 3. Message the admins and moderators more than once. Keep in mind: You're not the only one to notice the spammer! You'll note I put "Ignore the spammer" in bold. This is because of what a spammer is. A spammer's entire sense of purpose lies in angering the forum members and moderators. So, by replying to them with demands, empty threats, or even polite requests, you're confirming that the Spammer's goals are being achieved, and encouraging the spammer to continue. The same goes for starting a new post, such as "Do you hate this guy?" "This guy should be banned," or "Petition to get this guy to stfu." Not only are you telling the spammer "Hey, you're doing a good job, keep it up!" you're also contributing to the spam by posting more off topic threads to the forums. Keep all this in mind the next (inevitable) time some immature brat comes across the forums. And for those of you that did attempt to alert the mods, thanks. =)
