Please do not respond to Spam!

Please don't respond to spam - it only makes more people see the topic as new, and tempts them to read it as a topic with actual discussion - so the evil message is seen again and again, which is their whole purpose in posting!

Better is to report the new message to the AG webmaster, or simply to ignore it on the assumption that those who are especially spikey about spam, and who regularly check for new occurrences, will already have reported it to Wendy!

In fact, you only need to report spam if it's gotten old -- like, over a week old, which suggests we missed it somehow.

Right now it got bad because of the Thanksgiving holiday, so none of us staffers have checked the boards in several days, due to holiday travel etc. Normally we all delete spam and erase spammer accounts whenever we check the boards.
