Stick the said thread in here :) Works for me with a report next to it.

Oh right. :) However..............yesterday/last night was pure madness and i don't see the need for us to have the button as it's clearly abused so often.

The spam button should remain in all forums, just because a handful abuse it is not reason to remove.

The mods would have more work to do if it were not there.

Well maybe that handful should have the privilage removed then as it's getting beyond a joke now.

But.........if those who continue to disrupt threads aren't reported and the threads are just spammed then they are getting what they want and let off scot free.

Unfortunately the trolls know that the Mods don't monitor the late night threads thoroughly. We report until we're blue in the face and then when the trolls/bullies have done their damage they gang together and spam :roll:

I'm starting to wonder if the Mods read any of what went on in those threads, because it's unbelievable the trouble makers have got away with it. :x

Maybe they were rightfully removed? *Just a thought*

no, one was about this & another about a post count :thinking:

There seems to be another spate of this, just these past few days ( well since I got back from holiday last w/e, I've noticed it!!)

I am not of the opinion that a thread should be spammed just because you disagree or don't like the subject matter or are miffed.

Those things matter but the report button can be used to get a mod to clean up or posts can be deleted or you can simply scroll on by.

No matter what one thinks of the various opinions in the F&F 'Poor are resentful' thread, I posted a comment with my opinion and researched some links and now that effort is wasted - again, as it has been in other spammed threads.

TBH, I've not noticed any other threads, but I 100% agree with what you say above. It's how I feel also. If the thread is too contraversial, pull it. It it's ok, deal with those offending and leave the thread. I knew it was going to get a major overhaul, but its just plain daft to delete. It'll only get reposted with another similar "challeng", so I'm guessing that may be the reason it was pulled (ie trolling by the OP.)

:thumbsup:

The HUKDmap one went and was reinstated. I can't remember the others.:oops:
I think that they are nearly all member spammed because they feel insulted/abused by comments but they should always report and those things can be dealt with properly by mods.

TBH, as you say, I agree with a thread being pulled if it is offensive from the start. I also don't mind if a thread is locked when it careers off topic.

edit - yes, good man ASB

Thread open again. It was member spammed but unsure why at the moment. I don't see anything that I haven't seen 1000's of times already. Differences of opinions are par for the course here, as long as members posting adhere to the code of conduct then the posts/thread should remain.

Of course members are encouraged to report genuine concerns by reporting the thread. These reports are actioned very quickly so there is no need to spam/expire a thread for reasons such as disagreeing with the content.

Thanks ASB :thumbsup:

Just to be clear to anyone thinking that the OP in that thread reflects my ideology: I disagree very strongly with a lot of the opinion posted in that thread. I just think that there are a lot of valid thoughts that do not deserve to be in the dustbin ( inc my post!!:oops:).

Thank you also ASB for emphasising that reporting is the correct way to go.:thumbsup:
