    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for some advice or options on how to delete a thread in a forum I don't own or have control over. What would be the best way to do this?

    Is there anyone who could honestly help meget this one thread deleted? Is it worth having people start accounts and then post porn and spam etc all in the thread for them to delete it?

    Is it worth bribing the moderator?
    Is it worth trying to bots to it?

    Please any advice would be awesome!

    Is this a negative review or something?

    Whether or not you can bribe a mod depends on the forum. There's def some mods on forums that I work with who will take a bribe. If it's a small forum with like one (or a small number) of mods/admins you'll have better luck with that.

    If it is a huge forum you might have luck with bots flagging the thread, but that will only really work if the forum will auto-remove threads. If it just alerts a mod that the thread is being flagged and needs to be manually removed from there, probably won't have much luck.

    Another option is to do one or more of the following:
    A. Push the comment lower in the forum by making other posts (just general posts). Push it down off the first page and it will basically fade to oblivion.
    B. If it's a negative review or similar, you could always shill some positive comments/reviews. Users expect some negative reviews. As long as it ends up being mostly positive, you're probably fine.

    TL;DR: Depends on the forum and what kind of thread you're truing to get rid of.
