And it makes no sense to either, just report one, the mod will of course check that poster's other messages, see it's all spam and delete everything in one go.

Yep, that's what we usually do.

The long delay between reports will be to slow down someone who wants to go on a reporting spree and just cause havoc.

Mods don't need or deserve that sort of aggravation.

Yes. A former banned user who sham remain nameless wrote a bot to cause havoc on the forum before, so that one could easily be abused.

Today I reported an offending post made by a certain member (who has track record of 'following' me) in a thread in the Test Equipment forum. The post was subsequently removed which is great.  :-+

However, i now found that my own post has been removed as well, despite containing nothing offensive, sarkastic, or in any other way controversial (unless pointing out that 'mHz' is't the same as 'MHz' is now verboten on EEVblog forum). So why was my post (which has been partially quoted by others) removed as well?

Heads up.
An old time troll has surfaced yet again.
Originally "GlossyWhite" back in 2011, then "iamwhoiam", "Wintendo", "asskong", "rolandpenplotter" and now came back as switchedmodepowersupply" / "switchedmodepsu"
He is also known as "Unlokia" with a Youtube channel of the same name and has been blocked commenting by several electronics Youtube channels that he frequents.
Watch out, he might be back.

He's back again under the name "Anfang". 6 years and still won't give up creating new accounts  :palm:

And he's back, and back again as "stargonjie" and "avrishuvorlaz"
Please everyone be on the lookout for him again, he doesn't look like he'll stop. A telltale sign is attacking me in some way, and posting dozens of posts the same day as joining.
Seems to have a infinite supply of IP's.
You might know him as "Unlokia" on Youtube.

inetnum:        193.200.150.0 - 193.200.150.255

There have just been too many constant reports about him over the years.

They seem to think Dave showing their stuff is some sort of green light to spam maybe.

Yep, and we've had this dozens of times. Even paying advertisers on the forum and website have spammed and set up astroturfing accounts which have gotten them banned.
And if you try and explain to them they don't get it, they apologise profusely but then keep on doing it.
Unfortunately the only way to send a real message (and help prevent them doing this on other forums too) is to ban all their accounts.

No, just too stupid to realise when the "flame you, let you get nasty, then get you banned" brigade are out.
Its the standard "ego trip" to bring down an expert.
I have been on forums since 2000 so know the trick very well.
