No Spamming The Spammers!

Some of you are getting horribly bad about "returning fire" whenever a spammer or troll enters our midsts. I know y'all are really enthusiastic about FBTB, and I completely understand you guys wanting to jump in and defend our home. But seriously, go back and look at those locked threads. Look at how much y'all posted in reply to the last troublemaker. It's awful. Really, y'all are being just as bad as the spammers themselves.

So this is an official word from your friendly neighborhood Cellonator:

Do not bait the spammers.

Do not reply to spammers.

Do not threaten spammers.

Do not say anything in a thread started by a spammer.

Let the Mods/Admins handle any and all problems associated with spammers.

Do not quote the spammer's posts. This only increases the amount of work the staff has to do after the fact.


If you see a spammer, and you don't think there is a mod/admin on FBTB at the time, the most y'all need to do is send one of us a Private Message. Better yet, if you happen to know the e-mail address of a mod, drop us a line that way. Heck, if there's a problem, click any of the following emergency buttons:

Click | Click | Click | Click | Click | Click | Click

We promise that we will get to the problem ASAP. That's what we're here for.
