Popular sites and those that rank highly in search engines attract a lot of attention from spammers. As a consequence of its popularity, on an average day there may be anything between a couple of hundred and a couple of thousand attempts to post spam on this website. The attacks are usually made by armies of zombie PCs infected with viruses and directed by internet criminals.
Most attempts to post spam on this site are blocked before they even come close. Some come closer and very occasionally some spam will slip through the many layers of blocking and filtering that are in place.
If you spot some spam getting through onto our website, don't fret! It will usually be picked up by one of the contributors or editors and removed from publication very quickly. If you feel that the spam might have been missed, please copy the address of the page where you found the spam and paste it into the feedback form with a quick explanation.
Contributors and editors can mark items of information and comments as spam by clicking on the 'Mark as spam' link near the bottom of the item or comment. Items marked as spam will be reviewed by the administrator and may be re-published if incorrectly reported. Otherwise, they're deleted automatically.
Please do not use the moderation button to remove spam; it does not remove it from the site altogether, but rather 'hides' it. By using the moderation button, it makes it harder for editors of the site to remove it altogether.
