Since the Feedback forum is no more, this will now be the thread for reporting canoes. Please post a link to the threads and the names of the spammers in this thread. Big thanks to everyone who takes the time to report Spammy McSpammers. Your help makes it easier for us to blow them out of the water!

You may also use this thread to request moderator assistance, such as updating a thread title or moving a thread to another forum, or to report forum violations.

A explanation on canoes for newbies:

With older GRM forum formats mods had to comb through threads for spammers, which took way too much time to do because of the number of spammers we got. There was no "report comment" button what like other boards have. The community helped out by flagging potential spammers with a key word, which the mods would then search the boards for. "Canoe" became the keyword to identify them. "Flounder" is a similar keyword we used for flamewars/flamebait/trolling... basically, Internet arguments gone out of control. Threads on religion, politics, and your favorite brand of penetrant/motor oil/etc. are particularly susceptible to becoming flounders.

Of course, canoe and flounder have become in-jokes. So are the filters for naughty words. You can figure those out by filter pwning yourself.

So if you find a spammer or someone who isn't playing nice with the community, please report them here. Mods don't actively go searching for every instance of the word 'canoe' anymore, so while its OK to reply to a spammer with 'canoe,' we may still not see it. Tattle on them here, and we'll make the decision on whether to banhammer them or not.

And then I post and this happens. A pop up over my screen shot of the pop up. Funny but even more annoying.

We're aware of the email form issues and working on a fix. To clarify, the intended behavior was to hide for 7 days after any interaction, whether you close the form or enter your email address.
