Attention Spam control

When members participate, spam goes away. Charlie, the Admin, doesn't know unless its reported via the 'Exclamation' box, not by posting and bumping the spam up to the top of the forum.

Post Re: Spam control

Just a reminder to all here - reporting a spammer by posting "Reported.........." in the spam post simply gives the spammer more free advertising by bumping the post up. As suggested in this opening post, use the tab designed for this to report it silently while it gets Charlie's attention directly; the ad drifts down the list without getting any more attention and either dies or removed.

Attention Re: Spam control

New technique being used by spammers - sending PMs. I dont see a way to report PMs, or am I missing something?

Today I got a PM from "thekyguy11", which looks like a legit user that joined in 2009, posted 3 things, and now his account has been hacked by spammers, who are using it to send out PM spam. It wasn't just sent to me, he copied in a bunch of people.

Charlie, if you 'd like to see it I can forward it to you. Or if there's a way to report this via the forum software, my apologies, I missed it. I'm more familiar with SMF, as a run 2 forums on that platform.

Personally, I think Charlie doesn't read every post or thread, maybe spot checks a few of interest. Members should use private messaging about certain issues related to conduct or spam on these forums. I've also been spammed privately and simply used the option to bring it Charlie's attention directly.

Eh, you'll never please everyone.. if you put moderated first posts to keep the spam from being visible on the forum so that you can screen for bots people will whine that you're "locking them up".. if you don't spam bots make it past the rudimentary filters and you get what you see.. unless he's on 100% of time or you want to hear people whine about not having their posts immediately gratified when they setup their accounts you're going to get spam seen on the board.

Pick your poison.

Sorry about the spam. This is unfortunately a constant battle...

Please report it whenever you see it -- that is the best way to alert me if I'm not on the site when its happening.

Thank you!!
