I'm with you, all the way.

Actually, the best method for their removal, is to ignore them, completely.

As one of the people who routinely flag 'off topic adverts for low quality goods', I know how annoying these morons can get. Learn how to edit your HOSTS file so you can assign the spammers' websites to 127.0.0.1 and prevent your ever using them. Then flag any SPAM messages for removal in the lists. We CAN fight back!

How ironic, the spammer Qii Q posting to this thread. Either they're too thick to understand, or they're taking the mick.
Have already signed via another thread, but thanks for highlighting this issue & the petition, Rock.

signed and noted....these heartless asians have the balls to advertise their crap products on this site, where animals are suffering and dying. I always flag as inappropriate many times. It really annoys me that we are all against different issues going on around the world, and these bastards are only interested in making money....

TY Rock & Kit for creating the petition.
Flagged the SPAM above.
 

Rock H. (254)

That's the fourth spam on this news page and they were all for the same website. Why doesn't Care2 block posts with that website listed and ban the IP address of every computer used to try to make these posts?

@ Fred Krohn - Learn how to edit your HOSTS file so you can assign the spammers' websites to 127.0.0.1 and prevent your ever using them'. Where can we get this information?

Both the above ads flagged. Petition signed.
