Thanks Flo. I marked it as spam and Hien will take care of it! I don't have any power over Asia...

Just out of curiosity, what actually happens when a respected member or travel guru reports a post as spam? So I presume the moderator for that bit of the forum will take a look at it, then what happens?

Yep, the janitor for the forum looks at it and then decides what to do with it. The options are:

1. Release the post from the 'spam hold'.
2. Delete the post entirely. This is usually in cases where there's blatant promotion.
3. Edit the thread. That would be if somebody posted personal contact details, for example. Or somebody being insulting to other members.

In some cases the person who made the reported post will be contacted and the situation explained but that is up to the moderator and depends on the kind of post.

I hope this helps.

Moderators will then decide (based on the forum rules) whether to delete or edit the post.

Oops! Phil beats me to it with a much more detailed explanation.

I learned from the best, Darth Hien!

I'm betting Hien was slower with his answer because he was typing with only one hand. The other was holding a bowl of instant noodles or a glass of Cadbury chocolate milk!!

Isa heads off to finish dusting the knick-knacks in her forums and to make sure Hien hasn't been misbehaving in OT...
