Report post button?

When I use said button, does it just send a message to the mod for that area? For example, there is a spammer who just hit a few areas with the same message. The one that I reported happened to be in Shotguns. Is the Shotgun mod the only one that gets the message? I realize that moderators have lives to, and aren't able to watch their inbox 24/7. I want to make sure that the spam is brought to the attention of whatever Admin is online promptly, but not make a nuisance of myself while doing so.

The button sends an email to the mod(s) of the particular sub-forum (e.g. Handguns, Shotguns, General Discusssion, etc.) in which the offending message was posted and also automatically appends links to the post and the thread as well as the name of the member making the report.

In some cases you might get a more rapid response by PMing a staff member who's online rather than hitting the report button.

BTW, Spam all gone.

Cool, thanks. Just what I was looking for on both counts.
