Spam?
« on: June 26, 2011, 03:33:49 PM »
Does anyone have a clue as to why we've been getting so much spam? I mean the posts about medicine sales and etc.

Shaina is usually the ones that handles them, but i haven't seen her in over a week. So i guess she has some matters to attend to in real life.

I didn't mean to complain or anything, it's just that I find it unusual that this forum is targeted by so much spam.

Yeah, it's getting pretty bad.  The entire first page and a half of "recent posts" is all spam.  Is there a setting on the forums to prevent hyperlinking temporarily, or image posting?  That might cut down on some of it.  Or we could ask the Gold Saints to go after them in the name of justice and protecting the forums.

Shaina live in Germany and I understand her health on a normal day isn't helping either apart from real world commitments so we just have to tolerate till she or Newborn drop by. Like Tetsu said, I think she's the only one who have the power not only to Ban Usernames but also their ISP Address (or whatever you call that) prevent Spammer from creating a new account.

For now, the Moderators are already doing their jobs to send away the Spams as soon as it get posted up or delete them for repeat offenders in case some people didn't notice.   ::)

It's probably from the same Spammer/Spambot as they'll continue to spam until their own internet link is Ban by our forum.

Thank you very much, Haldir.  ^_^  It is appreciated--I have noticed the mods doing a great job.  I had hoped there was a way to take the burden off of the mods, is all.

Indeed they are doing a great job, and spam is usually gone quickly :)

We have no choice but to tolerate it until the admin comes back. :(

In case you didn't notice, the Moderators are around everyday now and the Admin at least once every few days so all Spam Threads will be deleted from public sight as soon as the Moderators see them.

I report it to a Moderator whenever I see the spammers doing anything. I have seen them quite around quite a lot lately. Although, I haven't been here that long. But I remember when my forum was being attacked by spammers; I had to manually approve of users whenever they wanted to register after that.
