SPAMMERS AT TWELVE O'CLOCK!

Postby elba » 06 Dec 2007, 17:09

No less than thirteen threads infected by the latest spammer this afternoon....

Don't they just make you sick?

But never mind there'll be a Moderator round in a minute to ZAP the lot of 'em!

Twenty five in total but he/she is banned now :twisted:

Sometimes we need a little more than a minute but Nuccia and Wldspirit are doing a great job!

Thanks Edmondo - I know they (Nuccia and Wldspirit) will always be around sooner rather than later.

But I think what is most annoying about these 'spamming jerks' is that I'm always afraid that if I open up one of their posts inadvertently then I will become inundated with spam from them for their often distasteful products!

Thanks Elba and Edmondo for the kind words. Missed the ones today. They must have hit while I was at work!

Most of you know my email and/or skype. If you should see a problem or spammer before I do let me know. The messages come through on my phone as a text so I'll know immediately if there is a problem!

Thank you for the vote of confidence, but I must admit I have been rather lax in checking in on a regular basis..... :oops:

Promise to do a better job of keeping up on this spam, Nuccia has been handling most of the garbage!!!! :wink:

I wouldn't open any posts where the poster is new (one or two posts) and he/she is advertising something (real estate, clothing, etc).

When in doubt about a link..don't open it. One of the moderators is usually around and will be able to determine if the post is made by a spammer. If it is, the post will be deleted.

Remember, you can always contact one of the moderators as well if you need any help by using the PM icon.

Hope this helps some. :)
