How do I report garbage posts?

Ok, so there hasn't been a lot of activity on this website in recent months, but do we really have to see posts in languages so foreign I can't event tell what country the post comes from, or so off topic they shouldn't even be here? I looked for a "report" icon/button, couldn't find one.

Related to this, is there any adult supervision here anymore? A moderator could check in every few days and keep things cleaned up.

I know exactly what you are saying, but I didn't know who to contact, or where to report them.

I’ve noticed there are a bunch of posts so to moderate may be tough. Is there not a flag button? Maybe I haven’t looked close enough.

There's a column of the latest posts on the right hand side of the main screen, and only four of them AREN'T junk posts.

But I have found the report post icon, it's that triangle with an exclamation mark inside.

They are very common and annoying, and I'm not a moderator. I've got to imagine it's been a real pain for them.

I use the "report" button, the red outlined white triangle with the "!" in the middle located below your screen name.

A thing I find interesting about these posts is they usually come as part of the "Trending Posts" email I get periodically.

It's either interesting what causes the computer to select these for inclusion in the email, or even more interesting if a human is actually choosing these for inclusion in the email.

I how this forum doesn’t pull a Twitter and start pulling articles or posts that are not the majority approved- diff options are needed but I agree report spammy crap
