Thanks for reporting that. Looks like another mod took care of the user. 

 

Anything else like this please PM a mod

hello

 

I banned the bot when I saw your report on the message. Even PMs we will see if the item is reported :)

 

thank you for reporting the bot; it's always appreciated as the system can't catch everything :)

As Brandon H mentioned, Mods can't see PMs unless you've reported it. Please report and we'll ban those pesky spammers!

Even if we could, to go through every message posted on the forum to determine what is and isn't spam would be a team of peoples full time job.  All mods are voluntary (including myself) and we all have full time jobs.  Neowin doesn't pay us to do the moderation tasks.  There are hundreds, if not thousands, of posts a minute and to go through each one and approve/deny/monitor would be a daunting task.  

 

We, the mod team, need the help of all forum members to be able to help us identify spammers so that we can do our job to remove them.  In the same aspect, we cannot be in all topics to determine who is breaking the rules, we need your help to identify those users too.  This is essentially your forum and we are here to help you.
