This conversation is no longer open for comments or replies and is no longer visible to community members. The community moderator provided the following reason for archiving: Old spam content that got too large to manage. It has been replaced by a newer thread

There is no way to report SPAM or unwanted/abusive posts in the forum.

We cannot even contact moderators/employees to report them.

What are we supposed to do?

Unfortunately it's largely out of our control. I have a feature request open with Get Satisfaction that would allow users to flag items for review, but it's not implemented or even planned. I'm guessing that Adobe has more staff who review all of their content and are faster about taking it down than we are. For now, Paul's advice is probably the best...just ignore it.

That being said, if there's something we've missed, if you post a link in this thread, I will monitor this thread and review anything that anyone adds.

Adobe has a program known as "Community Experts" that are granted the ability to remove or edit or flag inappropriate posts. And given that Adobe has about a hundred or so different products, that community is quite large. I know I have that ability as a Community Expert for two of their many products. So it's quite handy to report and delete posts.

Mmm. Frustrating when obvious and frequently requested requirements for software are not implemented or not even planned, isn't it?

If you do happen to can Get Satisfaction (which, with its many and varied limitations (the absence of spam reporting being just one) would be far from the worst thing to happen), could I suggest that some thought be given to a MUCH improved method for Requests for Enhancement (RFEs)?

At present someone has an idea. If they forget to flag the thing as an "idea" it never gets voted on anyway. Someone else sees the same need 2 months later. Maybe they'll see the earlier post if they stumble upon the same keywords by chance, probably they won't. They might raise an idea. It gets 5 votes. In the meantime the thread gets buried under "How do I?" threads and is never seen again. Four months later someone else has the same need... fast forward, (after rendering of course because you can't play back in the editor at variable speed)... 5 years later someone else sees the same need which still hasn't been implemented, and...

You end up with a stack of people having the same basic idea, but the ideas and any votes are scattered across a dozen different threads so that the need for any given enhancement may appear to be less than it actually is.

If RFEs were hived off into a separate area, distinct from user discussion / Q&A type threads which included keywording and categorisation, this would be far less of an issue.

Why don't I flag this thread as spam in a way that no one will forget?
