Let's downrate annoying spammers

Spammers are attacking Sharenator lately and it's getting really annoying. You have probably noticed comments like these:

spammer - let's downrate annoying spammers


Next time you see a comment like this, downrate it. Once spammer's post is at -2, it will be hidden ("This comment is below viewing threshold"). If enough people click on "-", we won't have to see spam anymore.
Let's downrate spammers to oblivion.

Meawhile, if you stumble upon some particularly annoying spammer, report him/her on this thread so we could help downrate him.

    Cause most people are afraid that they themselves will catch hell for reporting it, so they don't take the initiative to actually do something about it. No offense to anyone...

    It is not completely anonymous. The person who you reported will not see that you did. Only the moderators will know.

    Doesn't the site automatically do something about people who constantly downrate? Don't go looking for the spammers, but downrate them every once and a while if you see them.

    Lol that was close to being ironic xD

    And also, you can deal with it yourself too. When you spot members who are constantly spamming, do you just delete the posts or do you actually inform Paul? Thats what i do :P

    I never usually see loads of spam from the same user so I usually just delete it.

    Now we have a report button... press the report button and it will be dispatched to Sharenator's own team of highly trained monkeys (and moderators :P). The monkey or moderator that sees this first will decide to either delete the post or dismiss the report.

    If we see SPAMMING, we will delete the post and also contact Paul via Email. Im not sure what they do, but i assume they IP block and disable account access.

    I believe it is anonymous, but if you report something, some sites will penalize you if they feel your claim is not just. (like limiting the amount of posts you can make per day, etc.) That's why people are scared to do it.
