This should be of interest to everyone on this board. Not only do i flag just the spammers but i also flag all the jerks that post those dumb one line remarks. Now when i go on to other message boards, these same people are flagged there as well. And i don't have to read their #$%$. If there are a few more on that other board that also posted their one line stupid remarks, i flag them as well.
In no time you should be able to rid the boards of all these people. I love to use the flag feature. Just as fast as they create new names, i flag their #$%$. Hope this info is helpful.
I do the same. They create new names very quickly(like weeds), and it is quite amazing how few posts remain once the garbage is removed. The quintessential trial(for your patience and quick typing skills) is the ARR board. They have had an all out short attack of late and my fingers have been flying. Too bad. Its a nuisance but a real way to return sanity to the boards.
