Topic says it all. Downvoting takes too long to solve the problem and it's not viable to have people email support@riot each time it comes up. Neither does it work to wait for Reds to see it (even though they're prolific on the forums). As it stands now, after business hours naive players are especially vulnerable to forum phishing scams.

You need to build the feature and assign some CSRs to handle the tickets submitted as if they're priority, and you need to do it ASAP.

I emailed support about the dude about an hour ago.

I think he got hacked. Level 30 with recent games. No need to blow his account away like that.

...Okay...

We need Jesse Pering to step into the forums for a sec. All these evil people will die in shame in his presence.

No really, get Mr. Pering in here.

Honestly, it takes Riot weeks to deal with reports in game. A report function on the forums wouldn't do anything. Atleast the downvote system can be used to lock it, or if naive people see theres a ton of downvotes on it, they might think before clicking it.

True, but since there's been red posts in the last 20 minutes or so, and the links are being nuked, I think its under control... ish.

Riot, I suggest revoking all logins, and reverting passwords. Preferably, with the e-mail of a recent backup being involved somewhere.

Is it this d2k5 guy? I accidently clicked on his link and I immediately clicked exit tab. It didn't load the page but will I have a keylogger/ virus already?

Load your anti virus and scan. Now. Generally the safest course of action.
