Backseat moderation and spam reporting

Hello all,

Just a friendly reminder that we generally appreciate it if users don't attempt to "backseat moderate". If somebody posts something objectionable, please use the Report button conveniently located next to every post.

(You may not see the other buttons next to the Report icon unless it's one of your own posts, but you should definitely see the ! icon.)

Additionally, if you see spam messages being posted, please do NOT reply to them. Once again, report them, and a moderator will deal with it as soon as possible. This may take a little while depending on the time of day, so please be patient. The moderator team will be issuing warnings to people who persistently reply to spam despite our requests (for many years now) for you not to do this. If you've not looked at the forum rules in a while, this may be a good time to do so.

Also, for those of you who don't read the News forum, I would request that you pop your head in there every now and then, otherwise you may miss important announcements, such as this one.

As usual, if you have any queries or comments, please let me know!
