Hello,

Recently, there have been at least a couple of travel report entries, which were in fact advertisements of some travel agents. This pollutes our reports' database. Should we have a method (perhaps a button at the end of the report) to report inappropriate or spam content to Globo staff, so the entries could be assessed for appropriateness and deleted?

I realise that we already have a button to report spammers at the member's profile page, but I was just wondering whether we should have similar at the report's page. Or should a single inappropriate entry in a report disqualify such member altogether?

Kindest regards
Krys

Hello Krys,

ususally the member account altogether is involved as it is very unusual that a regular member would post a spam report .

Simply report of the existin spam button. This will help me to filter out.

Kind regards, andy

I am in agreement with Krys on this, I take as much time as I can afford to try to view all contributions and in as much that travel tips and the like will often contain suggestions on accommodation etc with details, so called reports which are a complete blurb for a travel company are most annoying, all that info is on the net anyway, I prefer to see genuine reports first hand from members and will continue to look at as many as I can, thanks for your time, Tony.

Hi,

I agree with Andy that it would be rare if a genuine member posted a report with a spam content like that. I am therefore convinced that the spammer button on the member's profile page should be a sufficient method to alert of such misuse of our site.

Kindest regards
Krys

Hi again, I am in the position of agreement with both of you, I see Andy's point and will not hesitate to hit the spam button should it happen again, there are a lot of very good reports published which take time and thought to compile and should not be diminished by adverts which could easily be paid for and help to support Globo, Regards to all, Tony.
