There have been many instances of posts being flagged as SPAM when they aren't. Here is a list of things that SHOULD be marked as SPAM



1. Linking to other sites that don't meaningfully contribute to the forum.
Someone who signs up to BG and posts links to their website/formspring/myspace/blog etc.



2. Linking to Cashcrate, Cha Cha and other sites of this naturel, even when done so by established members. Please note that the option to flag as spam will not be an option on prominenty established members.



3. Joining just to sell things that aren't relelvant. IE: Elcectronics, pills, sex toys etc. Signing up just to sell baby's clothesor baby items really isn't spamming because this is a pregnancy/parenting forum, but the person who is advertising will most likely not be trusted by the community.



4. Pornography. Mostly posted by new members w/out warnings and posted numerous times.



5. Trolls. Trolls are members of the site here to cause drama. Examples of troll behaviour are posting threads in the Abortion Survivors forum w/ pictures of aborted fetuses. Someone who is just here to start drama.



6. Banned members coming back and gloating that they are back. This falls in w/ number 5. Using their new account to entice drama. They've been banned for a reason and chose to start drama instead of changing their ways and laying low on the boards.



7. It has been debateable as to whether promoting/asking for votes in contests is Spam. Making announcments is not spam. Posting one thread asking for people to vote in a contest is not spam. One post is fine, two is a warning, three is flagged as spam. While it is a rule in C&C that posts not be made asking for votes, it isn't against the BG TOS.



8. Anything that floods the forums IE posting the same topic repeatedly.
