Please do not reply to obvious spam

I was not sure where to post this, so any way I decided on here.

When someone sees something that is obvious spam, it is better to just report it. Posting a reply to it just helps the spammer, and can make it more difficult for a mod when they remove the spam, they also should or need to remove the reply, because the replies no longer make sense without the post they replied to .
For example: https://fluxbb.org/forums/viewtopic.php … 006#p64006
Thanks
( Just saying) as a suggestion, I have no authority one way or another.

I'm sorry. I was good about it for years and wanted to make a joke out of it. :*(

To clarify , the spam was one of those fake passport and id type adds.

I removed your post purely to avoid any confusion for people that were to read that topic. wink

But as Bryan256 has mentioned, it's always better to report the posts/topics than to bring attention to it by posting.
