I just "hover" over the link name without clicking and then you can read the first line of the posting. If I see it's spam then I don't open it. If everyone did this and never opened the links then perhaps they'd get no revenue and decide to not bother with this website.

This can be done by hovering over the thread name on the right to see the first line, however, one still needs to open up the thread post to be able to hit the "Report Spam" button (looks like an ! in a triangle). But as far as the link in that post is concerned, yes please do not click on it, no matter how juicy the team match-up seems. One doesn't even need to hover the cursor over the link in the post to see the spam site it'll redirect you to.

If too many people are accidentally clicking the spam links, I can always start a conversation with the mod team about adding a plugin on the site that would block members from posting links until they have x# of approved posts. We encourage all of you to report posts that have links like this, and please let us know if there is one particular domain that you notice is being posted and we'll look into blocking that URL completely from the site.

Sheena, I DO think this would be a good start but it does make some new members upset, sometimes. But if they follow the rules, not a problem. MOST motorcycle blog sites have restrictions on new members until they have a set post count and some even have "RESPECT" requirements. If you do not get a set amount of respect votes from current members, you can not post links or pictures.
