How do I report spam posts on here?

There are currently 5 very obvious spam posts on the forum that have been posted overnight, but I can't find a way of reporting them. I'm on an iPad using Safari if that's relevant.

There are a load more spam posts this morning. One thing I notice though, is that any non-spammer post does have an option to flag a post as being 'spam', where these latest spam posts don't. I'm not too sure what forum software is being used here, but it seems there's a way of posting whilst disabling the ability to flag issues.

Posts don't allow spam votes, only comments. In general, we are awared about those posts and just delete them blindly when they are too obvious, but sometimes they also help us to identify new spamming techniques. So, you shouldn't worry about them.

You may help reporting the authors as spammers if you want.

Noted. I'll do that next time.
