Where? Feel free to report it. I do not think that merit sales or trades should be condoned. As I have stated in the past, it is equivalent to buying trust.

Report it in the Scam Accusations or Meta threads.  Post the web address of where you saw the communication.

Such news is not good. I try to share useful and up-to-date information, but I can not earn any merit. It was impossible to raise rank.

But it was quite obvious that it will happen, I mean selling. Regarding you, yes, I see this problem for a new users, they can share useful info, but not getting merit, probably just because of their rank, I talking about psimological moment.

Hey Guys! I hope that along with +Merit system we will soon have an opportunity of putting  deMerit also! Every single day i try to learn from this forum and gain some new experience but it's so hard to do it because lot's of LQ/shitposts ! I think with  deMerit it will be way easier to find useful info, +merit it and hide LQ post! Also it will help  moderators  to get rid of flood so people can find more content!

Here is an example of what we are trying to stop. I have already reported this one and 4 like him today.
Those are easy to report but I think Theymos has to send PM to all the users with the new rules in order to reduce the spam from all the unaware coming with the same question about merit. I suggested this earlier.

I think that giving demerit power to ordinary users would be a terrible idea.  Much though I myself oft wish I could click a button and give a post a negative rating, I understand how it would chill the thoughtful expression of controversial opinions—not to mention demerit abuse for petty personal vendettas.

The merit system only works positively.  I strongly urge that it should stay that way.

Also it will help  moderators  to get rid of flood so people can find more content!

If a post is really spam or otherwise absolute garbage, you already have available to you a means of not only “demeriting” it, but asking for it to be deleted:  That handy “Report to moderator” link you see in the lower right-hand corner of every post.  You have stats for that, too:  The number of posts you’ve reported, and the percentage of how often moderators have agreed with you.  My report stats currently say, “You have reported 254 posts with 100% accuracy”.  Those stats are not publicly visible, except when the most active and accurate reporters occasionally have their good work commended.

I sometimes dedicate an hour or three to reporting spam.  Usually, I just hit it when I see it.

Click the +merit button next to anybody's post and you will see how much you have available.  As a general rule of thumb, you will start with HALF of the merit that you have earned.  You likely have 2.5 sMerit if you haven't used any so far.

I'm still confused how to get the merits, I've been trying to make a good post, but I also have not get the merits, maybe anyone can explain how easy it is to get the merits?

It's not so difficult to get some Merit. Create some topic which you think might be interesting for the others, write something useful and interesting there, and you possibly get some.  I am still a Newbie but I've already got few merits .. for ex. on this topic - you can have a look to have an inspiration: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2858545.msg29340604#msg29340604

This is the smerits
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2818350.0

Using this link you can easily understand on how to earned smerits, because if you can't collect smerits you have no chances to ranked up. So be creative on post you've been made and make sense all your tips, suggestion and opinions you want to shares with the others.

They're not actually that easy to get. If someone agrees with you they may merit you, but mostly it seems you need to write good quality posts often and if you're lucky someone with merit notices it and merits it.

Maybe this will change with time and more merit sources/distributions, as it is still early days yet.

If a post that has been merited is removed, does the user that created the post lose the associated Merits or sMerits?  I thought they got to keep both, but that's the only situation were I think the concept of demerit might work well.  If the post no longer exists on the forum, it's hard to argue that it deserves any forum merit.

How about if the post merited is deleted? Will the merit count? Or erased too? Because somebody could just use merit for unreasonable purpose.

The merit is not undone if the post is deleted.

I like having to seek positive posts, it's a nice change of pace from always looking for negative activity... but a demerit option may be necessary in the future. I'm not sure a demerit option for everyone is necessary right now but it at least seems logical to drop merit for deleted posts by mods & users... there seem to be a lot of shitposters that have gotten into a habit of deleting their prior posts after a campaign has ended to hide their crap, and maybe this would help with that also, assuming they somehow get merit for those posts.

Why i don't have any sMerit left in my account? Few days ago i have around 30 sMerit but now i have 0.

Code:
we reserve the right to decay unused sMerit in the future.
This is the reason? But i am using my sMerits.
You handed out 33 sMerits since the introduction. I guess that's where they went.

Thanks friend i found that my account may got hacked by someone.

Is there was no way to delete sent sMerits?
