Why, you Villain!  How dare you!

Forumites, please keep reporting so we can practice moderator discussion using the various tools available to us including responding to updates as more reports roll in.

For those who would also like to play, go ahead.  Have fun and be tasteful.

It seems that in obvious cases like this, removal is straightforward and does not really require any discussion. I would simply nuke a post like that and assuming it was just bad judgment PM the person with a warning.

It's the posters who are subtle trolls that will give us the most pain, I assure you. The ones that sow division, even amongst moderators. We will get those and they will not be fun to deal with.

Yes, I understand that.  I still need practice with reports, editing, and which buttons to click in what order to read both the user notices and the other moderator comments.

This test isn't about whether the particular post is spam; this test is whether I can reliably get all the notices I expect, what is required for notices to fall off the first notice warning system, and to explore the various communication avenues from various stakeholders in this particular system.

I appreciate everyone's patience and willingness to participate as I come up to  speed in the system.

Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.
