    1. How about a link or location? I've been looking around haven't noticed anything, just yelling at the mods does little to help the situation. Did you flag them?

      1. The mods have attended to the weirdness - all the spam is gone now.

          The mods really do a great job. I flagged some of that spam (and I bet I wasn't the only one), and it quickly disappeared. Yay for the mods!

            yes, they're very quick on the spam, and less and less of it gets through.

              Also, it is helpful to not respond to spam so it drifts off the first page, until the mods can eradicate it. Don't bump it!

        2. I cleaned up some Spam just last night. Of course it was Spam Omusubi...but I cleaned up every last bit of it like the good, immoderator hound I am.

          1. They are back again on the NAF board. Everyone flag it and maybe they won't fill up the board like yesterday :(

              Just as a note, it's enough to Flag one spam from each spammer. Once we see that it's spam, we'll take care of the rest. No need to go through and Flag multiple posts from the same poster.

                Would you like me to call them and ask them to stop?
