automatically remove forum posting rights if first thread/post of that user is reported for spam.

if first post of a new thread is reported for spam automatically hide that thread or at least change the thread title to “Thread pending approval” or something

People are doing things :) In the mean while, all mods are constantly removing every spamthread we come across. It’s defintely a bit busier lately!

I don’t know… but I feel pretty good when I disable those posts in the first minute of the posting. :D
There should be like a quick selector to give the reason for the post report – because I get tired writing “spam” all the time. :) This will also make the report action more different than the simple replay one – no more reporting by mistake.

Yet so have many of us mods, add to that of disabling and editing, removing content, and you know, the usual time-wasters… your point is? :D While I can only thank you for taking the time to report the posts, I can also assure you that there are far more users doing that as well, so whenever it gets too tiresome, just take a break, or plain stop reporting if it’s too cumbersome. I am definitely looking forward to those spam-protection measures KingDog was talking about too though :)
