We have implemented some measures to try to protect the forums from spam as much as possible.
The first line of defense is filtering. Most spam is generated programatically by creating many users and immediately having them post to the forums. Therfore, posts made by new users are filtered for spam. After a user has been a member for 3 days AND has made 5 non-spam posts, their posts will not be filtered for spam. Mainly, this means new users will not be able to make posts containing hyperlinks.
The second line of defense is you. If you feel a post is objectionable, then you can use the Report Post button located in the lower left corner of each post. It looks like a red triangle. This will send an email to the moderators.
