When to report?
 
Do I use the report button on posts like this; that are seemingly well.. ads?

I've been confused here lately. The norm seems to be to post new topics rather than reply to old.

Archive old threads if they shouldn't be replied to.

Sigh.

Report anything you think is hokey. The mods will sort it out - it's their job and they get paid the BIG BUCKS for it. We've definitely had an influx of spam lately.

There's some good stuff in old threads, sometimes people forget to check the last post date.

I try to search old threads to see if the basic topic has been addresses. Perhaps just awakening one will do the trick. I suppose some find it easier just to start a new post without checking.

In this case RickyB27 has made only two comments. Both of them appear to be selling a product, the same product in both threads. He hasn't bothered to go anywhere else and offer any help to anyone on anything that isn't selling his product.

I would say this is SPAM and should be be deleted.
