Well posting about it doesn't help. Have you reported the posts by clicking on the triangle with the exclamation mark under the user info on the left side? That's the best way to notify the forum staff.

We can ban users as people find them and report them but there's nothing we can do to permanently prevent all future possible spammers to creating new usernames and spamming over and over.

I understand that, I reported it last week on Tuesday (I think) via the "Spam reporting link" given. NO RESPONSE till today.

You typically will not get a response. When the post is reported an email is sent to the mods. Next time one of them logs on he or she will delete the post and block the email address. In the case of a prolific spammer, the admin can also block the ip address. But keep in mind that on these forums the staff are all volunteers (except, of course, for the site owner) and it's possible a little time may go by before someone can attend to the spam posts. In the meanwhile, the best thing the rest of us can do is simply ignore the spam posts / threads after reporting them.

Sorry, I'm used to "instant gratification" type moderation (i.e. G35driver.com), you so much as sneeze and a mod will smack you down.

Well, given your username and icon I'd think you'd prefer a little less oversight and a little more leeway & freedom

For everyone but spammers, yes.

There is a special place in Hell for spammers, right under Satan's outhouse.
