    6 Ads in a Row
    flutetooter posted:
    Monitors- There are 6 ads from Brwnsugar in a row! I read that it was O.K. to post complaints as well as report posts, because the monitors were better able to catch them.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
    davedsel responded:
    flutetooter, there are no more monitors or moderators in the WebMD communities. Simply report each ad as a ad/spam and eventually they will be deleted. Since it is the weekend that probably won't happen until tomorrow.

    Thank you. I reported the ads and they are all gone.

    Thank you for doing that, Flute. What a waste of space! Bad enough that we have ads that take up space on both sides of the monitor. I never look at them. You want to gain our attention: Sneak one in and then maybe....
    davedsel replied to auriga1's response:
    The WebMD communities are very susceptible to ads/spam. Every community I am a member of gets them fairly frequently. I have found that reporting each post gets them deleted eventually. It seems that without a moderator the only posts that get deleted are the ones that are actually reported. I had also reported all those posts on Sunday and was very please with the quick deletes.

    I've asked WebMD why they don't have better spam filters but have yet to receive an answer. The spammer are very deceptive and they register with what appears to be a legitimate account but have that ulterior motive. Just a small annoyance and able to be overlooked, I guess.

    Hope you are all having a blessed and terrific Tuesday.
