Reporting Spam

As with most internet forums, we occasionally get spam posts trying to sell you something, or trick you into opening a suspicious link.

The Admins and Mods try to keep up on such things, but can't monitor every post on every forum.

Fortunately, there's an easy way that y'all can help here.

Every post has a Report Bad Post link in the upper right corner, just next to the post number. It looks like a triangle sign with an exclamation point, pretty much just like the warning light on your Beemer's dash.



Click on that icon to mark the post as spam, and the Mods will get an email so that someone can jump in and delete the post and ban that user.

It's pretty easy, and it helps to eliminate such things quickly.

'13 Dark Graphite Metallic K16GTLD, 24K miles and counting...
'09 Magnesium Beige Metallic K13GT, 60K miles miles and counting...
'02 Mauve Metallic K12LTC, 106K miles and sold
BMWLT#145, IBA# 366, MOA# 111996, SCMA# 24032

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
