suggestion: 

maybe a sticky thread at the top of each category page would allow us to report the spam posts without responding in them and allow admin to remove them 

there is one that showed up in WW this AM for some drug

Just hit the Report button in the lower right.

Two members did just that this morning.

Saw the reports, and the spammers went poof.

Serious question.

How do you know it's spam if you don't open the thread?

Doesn't mean clicking on a link, just opening the thread.

Well when it has some drug name in the title I pretty much know it is spam. 

I thought that much was obvious..

Additionally as good as they are getting at spyware by just clicking a title link I think your synopsis is at the very least naive
