Hi all ...

Just checking if this was intended:

I saw two threads with an obvious spammer. I clicked the REPORT POST icon on the first one, sent in the report. I then clicked REPORT POST on the second, but got the following message:

This forum requires that you wait 60 seconds between sending emails. Please try again in XX seconds.

Should that time requirement be true for reporting posts?

No worries. You only really need to report one of the posts. Whenever we get a report, we look up all posts by the spammer and delete them all in one shot. Then we ban the user.
