Spam again

Noticed a post that has advertising.
Two folks have reported it. I tried, thought I had. But can only see the two who have already.
A box appeared and asked the reason. So I wrote spam advert in it, it said ta for report.
But it still only says two reports.
I did refresh the page.
So I tried.... :D Hope I was not trying to report the reporters. Please feel free to shoot me :D

    If you click on Spam it just gets flagged and that adds to the count.

    If you click on Report you have to say why yo're reporting it and then the mods will act on it but it doesn't show in the count.  On week days this can be faster than just adding to the Spam count.

    I find you have to double click on the Flag box and then it registers your name.

    I think it's teh threads I've just posted on Rubee. I also flagged her. Obviously trying to advertise, and she did on one of the threads. 
    I've also given her the heads up about it, so let's see what she does ;)

    any more flagging needed or has it gone now?

    I think the actual advert post has gone nut, but she posted on a few other old threads, although nothing obvious.

    If it's not  intrusive I won't go looking.
    Thanks Fairy. The spam flagging is a great forum feature

    Thanks Fairygirl and nutcutlet.
    Yes the advert post is gone. spam flag is great, once one has mastered it.
