Any way to delete the spam (Korean women pictures) that has shown up in the forums? Answered

Note to moderators:  In case you haven't noticed, there has been a flood of spam in the form of very suggestive pictures of Korean women that has been posted across most, if not all, groups.  It might be a good idea to remove this, if at all possible.

How does one flag a user. ChoH is one of the spammers. Has 14 instructables all of them are of women walking down runways. Might shrill some folks but in general I think this community is higher class than that.

At the moment, you cannot flag a user.

Flagging a bunch of their postings brings the member to the attention of staff, or you can copy the member's URL and email it to service@instructables.com with the subject line "SPAMMER"

They should be back to present-tense now. (I used an unsynchronized server to post. It thought I was in the future.)

In the first instance, flag it without leaving a comment.

You can also send a report by email to service@instructables.com

If the content is offensive, have a look to see what staff or members of the Community Team are around, because they can remove forum topics more quickly than a flag.

Dagnabbit, I checked them as well!

When the devs have defeated The Korean Menace, I'll post a bug report...

What Kiteman said.

Flag 'em as you see 'em. We can't hit what we don't see. This ruined a few staffers' Saturday mornings. If we don't act fast enough on the flags, send an email to service@instructables.com with some links.

Thanks for the info. Good job in getting rid of what was there and being on top of the new ones.
