Ok, so there have been a lot of spam threads of late.
Annoying though it is, rather than simply posting a reply, report it to RW Towers - it is the quickest way to get the thread removed, otherwise it sits at the top of the hot threads and the new threads.
It wont take any longer than it does to post a response - just goto the 'report thread to moderator' which is towards the bottom of the page, under the text box.
RW - Is there anyway yuo can ban users with a particular IP address, as per Intermanuts suggestion???
I think quite a few people report in spam threads. RW have banned IP addresses before. They did that with Kef.
RW - I still think it'd make sense if you gave some forumites some form of mod power to delete spam on weekends and in the evenings. Surely it'd save you all time.

In fact, we could close down most of the forum in a weekend

I know other forum sites where a spam post can be automatically closedafter 10 members reporting it.
That seems like a good idea to me.
