Completely botched it. Dunno if the forum will survive ;)


Ovbious spammers get no mercy. Give no quarter. Not even a penny. For spammers, there's no hope for reform, so ban on sight.

Which is friendly FT Moderator speak which means "banned".

If you have no doubt that it was spam, then ban like the wind, ban like thunder, etc.

I tried this today on a thread about using IMAP for YahooMail. I selected the thread by checking the box on the right of the thread, I selected moderation tools, checked delete as spam and proceed. I got a message stating I had not selected any valid threads.

I repeated this 3 times and failed each time. I was careful to follow all the steps in the first picture.

Eventually, I went into the thread and deleted it choosing the remove option. The thread is gone and the link they posted to whatever scumware it was is out.

Do the first 4 steps in this thread still work and is it just something in my browser or did the steps change?
