Yeah, mine just allowed me to 'print' though. The only option. Which was no help.

I tried to delete where I am Mod, but cannot find my tools. Tony - how does one find and use such mod tools again?


I have a big, blue 'Post tools' button at the top right of each post and if I click on it I get options to delete (among others).

I've just deleted about a dozen or so posts by Harry Allen in the General Thread. Also, a thread he started on whether he should hire an essay writing service to do his essay on gaming.

Usually i would see these sorts of posts as i am a frequent reader of the forums and remove them. However i've been away for a couple of weeks due to an illness in the family.

Unfortunately, when i've gone into those posts tonight I dont appear to have any options to delete them.

There's one at http://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/chess/YaBB.pl?num=1462956787/0#0 too; it's been a productive day for them.

I just PM the mods (as I have done with these two).

http://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/chess/YaBB.pl?num=1462944032/0#0 same as usual. Still don't know how to report people. Or should I PM some Mod? Or just leave it, as they're gonna see it themselves (not exactly a covert operation to write 5 one-line posts into old threads prior to spamming some link)

Hi, from a big chess enthusiast and a newbie in this forum. I think the Chess-opening-captcha is a great way to keep spammers away. Lucky me, I managed to answered it correctly as my opening repertoire is a little bit rusty ( just kidding- I stumbled upon my favourite opening).

http://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/chess/YaBB.pl?action=viewprofile;username=043735... spent 5 posts on quoting the first line of Wikipedia for topics discussed in the respective threads, before they posted some random ad.

I'd just report, but didn't actually manage to find a "Report" option?!

Don't know, but maybe because if they can catch just one person, it might be enough for them?
