Please don't dignify spam posts by adding to the thread they're posted to.  Instead, locate the "Post Options" button on the upper right of the post, click on it, and select "Report Post."

The additional posts end up just being noise with no purpose, and actually make cleaning up the spam a little more onerous for us mods since there are more posts we need to pay attention to when closing out the thread.

Thanks.

Hi, and glad you found it helpful, Gromet! Since it's to be in "FAQ's," I just cleaned up the numbering and added some written directions to go with the pictures! Smile

Just a reminder - reporting posts is still "the right thing to do" even on the new forum. Look for the triangle with the exclamation point and that's the "report post" button for the new forum.
