This Month's Tip: Reporting Spam on the Community
Spam (Unsolicited usually commercial messages) interferes with members’ ability to effectively utilize the community so it is important to remove it as quickly as possible. The community automatically monitors new posts and flags suspect content as spam, which sends it to the spam quarantine. Community moderators review the quarantined posts to ensure no valid posts were flagged.
While the automated system catches most of the spam, sometimes things are not caught by the system. This is where the community comes in as another way to combat spam posts. If a member spots suspected spam or other inappropriate content on the community, here are the steps to report it.
Click on the options menu (signified by three vertical dots) next to the offending post.
Click on the "Report Inappropriate Content" option
On the next page enter a comment describing the inappropriate activity and click "Notify Moderator.
Submitting the report will notify the community moderation team so the first available moderator can review the post and take the appropriate action.
