Spammers get deleted pretty quickly, spanker. Please do not reply. You can flag a report if you want.

I apologise. I had no idea that my replying would in some way prevent you from deleting the thread.

It is easiest to delete the poster, and with it all his/her/its posts.

There are sometimes several such to delet at a time. Each takes several keystrokes. You get quicker as time passes, but it remains a pain in the butt. Adding a reply doubles the time taken.

In this case, the spammer had made about a dozen posts. The mods have the option to delete a poster and all his posts with him, in one go, which is what I did.

That leaves any on the board replies that have been made by people who are left appearing to have started a strange thread.
