Default Apologies to any and all Moderators and Admins

The latest registered member, Qweqwe, has spammed at least 11 different threads with links to other, possibly unsavoury, websites. I have flagged the relevant post in each and every one of these threads (so far), but I apologise if what I have done is an overreaction; it occurred to me that it might not occur to any given Moderator who came across the first of these alerts that there may be more posts of this kind by the same member.

I've posted this apology in the Enclave so that this Qweqwe doesn't have any idea I have done this, in case of any kind of retribution.

I removed 3 of his post in the Regional area and made sure he cannot post for now....I cannot ban him, but he won't do anymore damage.

I flagged the first post I saw, then I realised it was an epidemic and wasn't sure if I should flag any more.

EDIT: Seems like a bot to me though, I thought we had a filter for things like that :/

I'd say he's a bot anyway.

We do have a bot filter, so either a smart bot or a spammer on 'roids.

Most of the damage is centered is
General (and subboard)
Marines (and subboard)
Regional boards.

I was able to clean the Regional ones being my board, the 2 other will need their respective mod or a Gmod.

Nicely done MT

No need to apologize, even if the board mod has seen it, then the report does no harm, and might help catch one missed.

I don't know how the "Report to moderator" report actually appears to you guys, but having done most of the reports it occurred to me that if it worked with something like pop ups, highlighting the messages, flashing arrows, or even just a PM (or equivalent) to your Message Inbox that the sheer quantity of reports might annoy someone.

Good to know that what I did was okay, though
