There should be an option to flag posts like that.

Yep! I flagged it immediately. Not sure if I was the first but I try to watch out. I love this forum and community. No need for that stuff!

You click on the little red and white symbol (looks like some sort of a sign) at the top right corner of the post, right next to the permalink.

It's unfortunate that you actually have to open the post to be able to flag it...makes you wonder about inviting in viruses...

Yeah I definitely had that same thought myself. Not easy to imbed viruses like that in a forum post though so it's not likely. But still had the same concern.

At least one mod is aware but at work and can't log in to delete it and ban the account yet. I flagged it as well.

It was frustrating to be getting all those spam reports on my phone (at work), and not being able to do anything about them.

I used to work from home fulltime so I could take care of DB biz now and again during the daytime. Not so much now.

I came home from work yesterday and the wife told me the email was blowing up with DB messages.I told her she must have been exaggerating
at least a little bit,until I read 2 pages of reported posts then killed the spammer.Well she was right.(I won't tell her that though)
