Drives me doolally also. All you/we can do is report it to the Mods when it happens and I'm sure they will find the random spammers. And hopefully ban them from HUKD. But...they will just set up a new HUKD username.

I also hate the cold voters.... you know the ones who vote "cold" 'cos they don't like the CD/DVD/game/product that's been posted (rather than the price)

well I used to just roll with it but some posters seem to have got beyond a joke so I have taken to reporting spamming. I'm sure ( at least I hope) the mods have their eyes on things. I wonder if it would be any good having a pop up box as to why you spam. say a duplicate post or something?

Sounds good to me, would be a good idea to have it for cold voters too :thinking:

I agree, when I reported this thread I had to give a reason :-D, so it should be the same when someone spams.

and your reason is? This is feedback and i'm asking for the mods and admins take on this. I cant see how this thread is spam.

If they've said it once, they've said it a hundred times.

"Members spitefully spamming/expiring threads can be suspended/banned"

Or a million derivatives of this^^^.

You don't see if someone is punished, just because you don't see it, doesn't mean that they aren't.
Spamming = Serious business.

I know you don't see it. I truly hope the mods tighten up on this a bit as it seems to be getting somewhat out of hand in my opinion.

Not that many members, and even if it has been brought up many many times then isn't it time the issue was adressed?

now thats just silly. All deals would just end up being hot as no-one would be bothered to have to type a reason when voting cold :whistling:
#16
Nice to see you have corrected your error of "spaming"... however you still have "comming"... should be coming. Oh yeah also, "I have used to contact us link" should be... the contact us link.
From the person you said that doesn't speak proper English, to the person who can't write it.

My thoughts exactly, OP is just annoyed a few members spammed a pointless thread. & as a result started a new thread which was spammed, & has now come to feedback. I do agree that you should have to give a reason when spamming or expiring though.

lol u know what i mean bella......this thread on feedback isnt needed.....mods do hand out suspensions and stop ppl from being able to spam things etc etc....just coz the mods do it privately...u dont know whos been punished...ppl do get punished tho......before i was banned from the site i recieved multiple infractions/suspensions for abusing the spam/report button.

the issues been adressed for a long time by the mods....by u making this thread ur not gonna start something new....they are already doing what uve asked
#21
Another of my threads has been spamed....
Why are you doing this?????

Mod's please....again I have used contact us....
