I know the onslaught of spammers is very frustrating and annoying, however just try to keep calm and trust that we are doing everything we can to deal with them. We may not be able to deal with them that day, but we will deal with them.
Typically, for the average spammer, this is what we do [we have our own guidelines that we have to follow to fairly enforce the rules]
If it's an excessive spammer, then we may skip steps 1 & 2 and go straight to 3
If uber bad spammer (ie: Cookie Monster): go straight to step 5 [instant chat & site ban]
I know this seems like too much and you all want us to just go straight to step 5, however, we can not. I'm sorry. I am telling you guys how we typically deal with this so you know what is going on behind the scenes. (*Awaits email asking me to rephrase this discussion :P*)
[Note: Comments are welcome for this, however, please be respectful toward ALL MEMBERS of the LP.com community. If this gets out of hand and people are not being respectful, we will close this discussion, and possibly the group as well; so please, vent your frustration in a respectful manner. You can do this without flaming the spammers/staff (for seemingly lack of action)]
