digitalmars.D - Abusive posts

There have been a handful of abusive posts here lately. These are not welcome. 
If you see one, please forward it to me or otherwise let me know, and let me 
deal with it.

Do not reply to them. And specially, DO NOT QUOTE THEM in your reply. That just 
propagates the problem.

The same goes for spam that appears here now and then.

Ironically I am quite happy that they are happening more often lately 
(not that we shouldn't deal with them, we should).
It means that we are getting a lot more new people who don't know our 
culture just yet.

Just a quick note that I don't think messages can be forwarded via the web interface.

it is time that this forum catches the century and move to an actual forum software where moderation can actually happen.

forum.dlang.org does have moderation facilities implemented. If you are missing a particular feature on forum.dlang.org, or otherwise have actionable feedback, please file it on https://github.com/CyberShadow/DFeed/issues.

Each message has a unique permanent link which you can get by copying the link from the post title, or the "permalink" link in the post sidebar, or (if you're using a modern browser with JavaScript enabled), simply click on the post and copy the contents of your browser's address bar. The URL contains the RFC 850 Message-ID, so it can be looked up directly in an email / NNTP client or server by those not using the web interface.

View menu | Headers | All exposes it for me. For example, it's the following for your message: <oibnfj$10hl$1 digitalmars.com> Ali

I meant looking up a post by its ID (not obtaining the ID of a post).
