    Maybe the moderator (singular?) has gone on their summer hols?

    I don't report obvious new spam threads, I do report spam posts that are tacked on to existing threads.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    No I don't report the new spam threads but like you Nukecad report those tacked onto existing threads.

    Out of interest I just tested the reporting system on a vBulletin site where I moderate.

    Logged as a not-mod and reported a couple of posts.
    I got sent emails to my moderator account email address:
    {details of what has been reported and who by}

    This message has been sent to all moderators of this forum, or all administrators if there are no moderators.

    Please respond to this post as applicable.
    but even when I logged back in as a moderator there is no indication or notification of the report on the forum itself.

    If the settings are the same here then the reports could just be going to an email address which is not be being read.

    Or the reported post notifications may even be turned off altogether.
    From the VB Administrators Manual: (my higlighting in red)
    Note:
    If the Post Reporting Email is set to No Email and the Post Reporting Discussion Forum is set to Select Forum then no notifications of any kind will be issued for reported items.
    If that is the case then sending a spam report will do nothing other than give you a sense of satisfaction.

    Don't know if we should be laughing or crying.

    Just looked and it is almost a year since I started this thread and nothing has changed from then to now.

    I reported one yesterday morning and it’s been removed.

    Well there are at least 10 from one single poster that have been here since lunch time today, they're not exactly easy to miss so why haven't they been removed?

    We are banging our heads against a brick wall trying to get anything done

    Still disrupting existing genuine threads as well.
