    I love our One Touch Spam Cleaner. (Yes, it's a real thing.)

    And now everybody else is wondering what the heck you guys are talking about. :)

    Hey Digger... as long as we're on the subject... is there an automatic tool you could put in where if a post get a number of 'reports' in a given time period or just a number of reports from members with more than say 3-400 posts it could quarantine them??? mainly for times when you guys are sleeping and some of us regulars with insomnia aren't... ;)

    That was an honest mistake..Digger shouldn't have had 2 accounts..:oops:o_O

    Just think if I would've had the big red spam button - we might not have a Digger.:eek::D

    With friends like these who needs enemies...:rolleyes:

    Maybe there could be an emoji you click on and it was like the Bat signal. All of a sudden you get big red flashing spam alert across the screen.

You whupped out the ban hammer and booted both him (and her) plum off of HEF. I was seriously LMAO 'cause I done figured out it was Digger all along. Can't recall what he had to do to claw back in here. :p
