Reporting spam

Is there any mechanism for reporting spam on the forums? Recently it looks like we've been infiltrated by school children who are just creating threads and having petty arguments with each other. Of course the activity on these threads means they get boosted to the top. Is there any way they can be reported as spam? If not, is this something Duo could introduce?

But I wouldn't suggest you to report every spam post you see. If one user in particular is repeatedly spamming even when you (or anyone else) asks them to stop, then I think you should report them. But in general, I send the spammer a message stating they are in violation of the guidelines, could they lease stop and read the link to the guidelines that I attached. But I don't argue with them. That just adds more fuel for them to snap back at me.

Exactly, that's a great point. This just fuels them to continue doing it.

Actually, just ignore the spam because the moderators will delete it.
