The way this forum is structured, it's unlikely you'll ever receive any sort of PM acknowledgement of the report you send. That's just the nature of vBulletin software. The e-mail reports reach the moderating team -- which to the best of my knowledge is just Mark's account itself, unless there are some ghost moderators of some sort -- and they handle whatever needs done.
I've made it clear a few times that there needs to be an actual, active moderating team. Not only to deal with the occasional arguments among members, but to eliminate SPAM/advertising accounts, move threads to a more appropriate sub-forum (if necessary), split threads that become too long (which can become a drag on the server), etc.
However, at this point it's fallen on deaf ears. I mean, I'd gladly give some of my time to do that sort of thing (having a long record of experience moderating vB-based forums), but so far the response I've seen from Mark & Co. is "nah, not really necessary."
Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!
For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

Speaking as a long-standing VB forum owner, I'd always much rather people reported spam or otherwise offensive posts than ignored them. Post reports are copied to my moderators' private forum, and someone will deal with the issue and send a pm to the person who reported. Normally this is done by a speedy moderator before I even see the report, and I click through to find it all already dealt with.
Mind you, this forum is very young. It took meyears of trying to mediate and soothe by myself - always succeeding only in making all parties despise me equally - before I finally realised I had to get some help. Moderators are wonderful. Every forum owner should have some.
