Tennis Spam

I was looking forward, in vain, to reading the replies to my two recent posts: 

"Spacers in Outlook and Rows"  and  "Spacers = Outlook Trouble"

Sadly, the replies were from a spammer inviting me to view the Australian Tennis on some, presumably pirate, streaming service. Worse still, I don't even like tennis even if I am down under (NZ)!!

Yeah, I noticed a spammer these days as well on some posts I'm following.

Maybe a 'report' button at each post/user would be good idea to help spotting these users.
Generally I think an advanced software (such as phpBB or vBulletin) with a reasonable category structure & user management would be really useful for all foundation users :-)

Just my thoughts.

If you flag the post the entire post gets deleted. The forum is horrible at spotting spammers and deleting the users who post spam vs deleting the entire post which may or may not be spam.
