There has been a few members who have been spamming the forums with links to unrelated sites. Moderators have been tagging messages for deletion. This is good practice, but also leaves the post and the link to the site the spammer is trying to promote.

I've permanently deleted a couple posts, but before continuing, I wanted to know how the forum members feel these types of posts should be handled.

Should we delete the posts and warn members their accounts will be disabled after the next entry?

How do other forums you are members of handle this?
