I see that are beside bloggers, there are other morons that use this site. It's a pity they do not have something constructive to post.

Well you live in London and you do Gods work, the lord always said you have to go north of Watford to see how good the country is, and the people are much more friendly.

Is that light enough ?.

Unhappy, you are preaching to the converted.
Your response is much lighter, pleased you have come into the Flock.
God bless!

I don't know how this works but could these people not be accepted to join ? I see today 4 have been allowed and subsequently posted .

As I said they are mindless morons with nothing better to do, what I don't understand is that people read their posts. Please don't and with a bit of luck they might go away or better still shoot themselves in the head with boredom.

It is very annoying! I read all legitimate posts then mark the rubbish as read.

Is there another way to evoke them getting blacklisted?

Possibly our delightful Dolly Diver could block their IP address ?

Every time I see them I click on them and notify moderator they are spam and usually they are deleted

I do the same, but it needs everyone to do it, what the site needs to do is not activate new accounts straight away, a two day cooling off period before anyone can post, other forums do this and it works. spammers are a pain and need to be stopped.

I don't think it's a good idea to click on their link ........ each click registers as a 'hit', which is taken to mean that someone is reading their advertising rubbish, which in turn is the whole point of them doing it. The more 'hits' they get the more successful they are. So I believe that the best option is to ignore their post completely and NOT clink on the link.....

I don't think he means click on the link, he means click on the report link as mentioned by Dolly. the little report this post triangle to the right of the spam post. You are right of course, never open a spam post.
