    So wondered if I can block the users posts from my feed so their posts don't show for me any more? It's something I've had the option of on other forums and handy if you get a rude or antagonistic poster. In this case I just want to not see their spam though. Know mods will eventually clean it up but being in a different time zone means it could be a while.

    On mobile site.

    We are having a bit of a problem with spammers today and we're dealing with them as fast as we can.

    If you guys see spam on the forum, please report one of the posts (per user) for the Staff's attention. We'll remove them as quick as we can.

    They are pretty bad this lot hope they get sick of being deleted and move on soon. They are keeping you busy.

    Is there a block member feature in the meantime though?

    Hover your mouse cursor over their username in their post bit, you'll see a drop down menu and "Block Member" is one of the options on there.
