Default reporting posts

We should have a button on each post to report offending posts to the admins or mods. I've seen other forums that do that successfully. Right now there is a quite obvious spam in the Windows Operating Systems and Software subforum.

Forrest,

There is a button in every post.



It is below the user stats. It is on everyones posts on every page.

Cheers,
Mak

Correction... there was, if you are talking about the "Western Union" spammer. The new version of vB let's us delete all the posts of a user as a single option, so we can get rid of it faster than ever.

I'll go check the area and make sure nothing else is floating aorund, though.

It isnt that your stupid. Unless you hover over it you dont know what it is. Many people just ignore those icons.
