Default Unanswered: WI spam?

I was just on FIA's guide to contacting Ganz via phone or email, and post #3 was from a 'guest' and was some links to some inappropriate websites, but it was dated back from March 2008.
I flagged it, and when I came back to look, it was gone - so either an Admin took care of it, or I'm crazy! Nope, my browser history shows the link.
So, question - obviously flagging it is the right thing to do - but I don't understand how it got there at post #3 dating from over a year ago? What kind of spam is that, and is it happening all over WI?
Just want to know what to look out for, and what to do with it.

I'm not sure why it wasn't taken care of before if it was dated from over a year ago, but I guess no one flagged it/mods admins didn't see it. Well, you did the right thing for flagging it

With spam, you can just flag it and a staff member will take care of the situation.

Just flag the spam (right next to the reputation button is the report button) and then the staff will be alerted, and will take care of it from there.

Default Re: WI spam?

thank you all! Figured flagging was good, but was just curious about the date, ie. can spammers insert it anywhere, anytime, or has it just been there for a long time?
Seriously, picking on a kid-friendly site is so depraved.

I'm glad that you flagged it!
That is the right thing to do. When you see spam, you should click the red flag (like you did) and a staff member will take care of it. I don't know how that post got there... but, I have seen some "guest" posts a few times and have no idea why they are on WI as a guest.
I don't really know what type of spam that is, but I know it IS NOT ALLOWED.

Good job for reporting that weird post!
I hope I helped!

When WI first started, visitors could post messages on the forum, I think. And even less than a year ago visitors could post comments about home page news. (I once flagged an inappropriate visitor post, too) So that is where you get visitor posts from. I think that this is no longer possible; now everyone has to sign up before posting anything.
