Reporting isn't the problem, preventing spam to be posted in the first place is.

Xymph, I agree with you. But how do we make sure he doesn't post a publicity message here?

A plugin has been suggested in the mod forum already, Nadeo says it's on their todo list. They did update the forum recently, which helps us get rid of the spam easier, but of course it still happens.

Nadeo has already taken measures to protect the forum against automated spam, which has reduced it greatly :thumbsup:
