I can't see the "Report this post" option anymore to report the spam (which is also driving me crazy btw)

yes , excess spam is one of the reasons that I rarely post any query on the forums and rather prefer to send emails directly.

I would prefer to post queries on the forum as it might help others as well in case they have the same problems.

1 thing that would help quickly is to lock all old threads, say any thread that has no response within 90 days...

And needs to be automatically done in the future.

That would stop most of the spam I am seeing.
