    I think you only need to flag a single one, if there's a whole page of them.

    I'm not positive, I don't know how "mods" watch all this stuff... I just remember the last time it happened, that they asked us to flag them all so they can find each and every one.

    I see they're at it again, but I'm too tired to poke a bunch of flags tonight :p

    Yep, it's Friday night and someone couldn't get a date again. Guess he/she decided to OD on Clearasil and then harass us again. I flagged one. I hate doing that because you have to open one to flag it, and malicious code can be hidden anywhere.

    Lol @Blooie what is with that? :D I must be old, but I don't remember "being a pain in the patooty" entertainment... Unless the whipping that followed may have been "entertaining" for the folks ;)

    Oh, but we also didn't have computers, we did db stuff like waste good eggs and toilet paper :D

    LOL every night there are THOUSANDS of bot spam posts. I seriously don't think the mods need us to flag them seeing as how it is pretty darn obvious!

    The odd individual spam post is another matter.

    I just have to wonder why? Did the site peeve off some bored hackers? Kind of hard to imagine what could have triggered it.
