How do I report or flag a comment as spam?

If you see a comment you believe is spam or otherwise going against site policy, you can easily flag it for our moderation team to review.

1. In order to report spammy or otherwise inappropriate comments, click on the three little dots to the right of a comment to launch the pop-up menu:

2. Click on the "This is spam" option. A dialogue box will pop up asking you to confirm this action - keep in mind doing so will report the comment and permanently hide it from you:

3. Next, the comment will enter the flagged queue for review by our Moderation Team. You won't need to do anything else - if we find the comment to be part of a pattern of spammy or abusive behaviors, the user in question will be permanently banned from the Insticator Commenting platform.
