    Did you type in a message and then click on "report post" to send it?

    Yes, I typed the message in a pop up after pressing report user button and then pressed report just like I do to report a post

    These spammers have been posting this same garbage for over a year now. According to a google search they even spammed Microsoft technet
    Google also shows results from this site and that likely means they will keep returning. I was able to ban one of these spammers a week ago on a site I am a moderator on within a minute of the posting and I haven't seen them return.

    You may see it under "Recent Threads" until one of our staff logs in & then removes it.
