I was thinking about the whole spambot thing, and I think I found a way to deal with them that's a little easier for the staff. All thats needed is for the first person to find it, report it as spam, and then leave a reply in the thread that says "Reported". This way anybody else who sees the thread will know that its already been flagged, and then the mods won't have 100 reports coming in about one thread. Seems like a good idea to me. Thoughts?

That's a good idea, but reports on the same post stack up into one report, so it's really not that big a deal.

However, if there's a bot that's got like 30 posts, it's easier to just report the bot's profile, rather than each post.
