Hello !
I want to tell you about a great sites I found. They pay me to read e-mail,
visit web sites and much more.
Every email is 2-4 cents worth.. and you get 20-30mails from each site everyday! Ive been paid 2 times!
Automatic payout every month!

{I have deleted the links as so i am not spamming}

It's free to join and easy to sign up!

At the top right hand corner of a post you will see a red icon with an x
use that to report a post

Not a post, a personal message (PM) in my ubuntuforums account inbox. There is no report button on the message as there is on public posts.

Hey bro, got the same spam from tuomaz :-& . I hit the contact us link at the right bottom of the page (when you opened the mail) and forwarded the message together with a little comment. May the forum staff carpet me for this if it isn't the right thing to do (what is then the right thing here?).

Indeed there isn't a report bad post button for PMs, anyway you can PM a mod directly and report the problem.
The "View Forum Leaders" link at the bottom of the main page will show you the list of mods and also which mod is connected to the forum.

Let us know if you receive other spams PM from this user.
