i'm at a bit of a loss as how to deal with this spam issue...have enabled new user moderation in the meantime...

Frieda 11-02-2007 07:22 PM

new user moderation?

Odbe 11-02-2007 07:24 PM

Yes, please do elaborate.

I think he means he is currently moderating the new users so he can kill off the ones that are spambots.

Thanks, ze.

You should enable candy giving over on your org page...It's even that time of year.

*runs off to watch the thanksgiving episode again*

yes, i don't envy the effort going into moderating the spam flow. i maintained my last forum less than 60 days before i just couldn't take it anymore and deleted the whole bloody thing. and that server sees a hell of a lot less traffic than this one.

brightpearl 11-02-2007 09:16 PM

Yep, and thanks to Frieda, too.

Anna 11-02-2007 09:16 PM

that worked!
just have to watch for any strays.
could save time by asking real new users to reply in all caps or a special word in the subject, then you won't have to spend time going through each new users, just delete them all.

just a thought.

Frieda 11-02-2007 09:34 PM

ah, i see it now, monkeys! :)

there's still spammers in there with 1 post apparently.. from way back. i could check those if you like, ze!

Hyakujo's Fox 11-02-2007 10:53 PM

looks like there's a hole in the net...

Frieda 11-03-2007 06:48 AM

i dont think there is a net. from what it looks like, ze deleted all users with 0 posts and transfered all the regulars to a usergroup named "monkey"

Coffee 11-03-2007 02:17 PM

And some of those 1 posters have 1 spam post.

btw...why is it again that I don't show up in the member list?

Avalon 11-03-2007 03:13 PM

^^^^over 4000 posts

Man..spammers are a relentless bunch, are they not? 3 new spam posts in the last 10 minutes. :(

Coffee 11-03-2007 03:31 PM


^^^^over 4000 posts
Incorrect. There are 13 members on the list with over 4000 posts.

Avalon 11-03-2007 04:05 PM

Nope, correct..but it changed when the the board turned over with the great dark room debacle.

You can still find your name if you click on it..your profile etc will come up.

look under 'view forum leaders' on the front page.
