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.

    Oh wow, I've actually been looking for such button in the past few days, never saw it (have mercy, I'm blonde atm). Thanks for pointing that out, would be very useful:)

    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.

    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.
