Please Don't Feed the Trolls!

As some of you may know, we had a troll here today, lots of rude spam posted.

Please don't respond to these types of posts. These people feed off of the attention. It also makes it more difficult for the Mods to clean up when the spam is in existing threads and members start responding. It's just that many more posts that need to be deleted.

The troll has been banned and hopefully won't be back again, but if you do see these types of posts, please just PM a Mod (or even a few of us, in case someone isn't available).

Thanks...

Do you have any idea how hard it was for me not to post the lyrics to "spam spam spam" on that 'thread'? I'm really proud of myself that I resisted (huge Monty Python fan here!).
But I knew a mod would come along and clean up that mess, thanks for keeping on top of things!

No fun at all, Tim. It's really, really hard not to respond. Especially hard not to PM a nasty message. I'm going to have a twitch for the rest of the night.
