How to properly deal with spam posts

Let’s say you come across a post on Ask that looks like this:

What do you do? Should you do something about it? Should you bring it up? Should you go flip a table in anger? That’s what I’m going to explain today.

The process

First, begin by asking yourself, “Am I a moderator?” If the answer is no, follow this simple guide:

1.) Report the post

That’s all you need to do. Don’t add a comment saying “Stop spamming” or “Stfu this post sucks”, that can only lead to more toxicity. You already know it’s intentionally spam, they probably know it as well. No need to make a huge deal out of it.

If you answered “Yes” to the first question, then you should already know what to do. Just do whatever you did in training or something (I’m not a moderator).

We had training?

But yes, reporting is correct.

@CodeLongAndPros Oh, I have a quick question... how do you guys see reported posts? Is there a separate tab for them?

HahaYes (1288)

@DynamicSquid according to my research, its just there in like another place I guess you could call it tab?

@DynamicSquid Super sorry for the delay, there's a url, admin/boards/reports. I just have a bookmark called "Admin Reports"
