Post Report Spam Here
Not too sure if I'm even authorized to make a thread in this forum but I want to make it easier on Ken or Surg since they're not always on and they're the only ones who have control over every forum.

The idea is to report spammers.. links to the thread and the name of the bot would be good.

Thank you Eric.
It's a pain in the butt, that's for sure.
Too bad we don't see as much of Ken or Surge as we used to. :(

Found this one in one of the Killer Post Heaven threads!
It's one of the classic spammers that posts something that doesn't make sense and has an advert in their sig to boost search engine ranking!

I actually sent Ken a message about these in May but it's still in my Outbox so guessing his inbox is full?

"Not sure if you've noticed but there have been a few people show up and post randomly a few times that have adverts in their signatures.
I don't understand exactly why they do it but it's something to do with increasing the number of times Google finds the keywords on different websites and boosts the position of their product in google searches?

Here are 3 recent offenders;

As far as I know, mods can't ban spammers - I can delete the posts (and I do) but only an administrator (Ken, Tom, or Chad - does that guy still exist?) can delete someone's account or ban them. Ken and Tom - please correct me if I'm wrong.

It's VERY difficult to keep these fools out. It's amazing.

I have visual confirmation turned on, so they see the fuzzy letters/numbers that have to be typed correctly to join. So that keeps the pure BOTS out.....but if they use REAL people....I'm screwed. I can turn on Administrator approval...so I have to approve them....but really... HOW do I know FRENCHMAN or whatever is not real? Aside from emailing them each individually....I don't see how that will be an improvement. But I'll try it.

I guess controlling them on a "previous" basis is almost impossible, but it seems like we all know who the spammers are, and they should be kicked in the balls and eliminated from this holy land.

Well, if you say so. It's been done on other boards and works well enough.. You could also disallow signing up with certain email addresses/providers I guess.

Yes..you can.

But they get a new IP...and do it again...and again. Once they know they can get it in...makes it tough.

What I'm doing now is approving each new user by hand. So far, it's been pretty easy....I reject anyone from China, Russia and Nigeria, looking at their IP. Obviously if someone's user name is related to guitar or rock..it's easy. I'm wary of the made up words...like Stenic489.

Possible spam. This individual comes on and the first and only post doesn't mention Racer X, Paul, or to even say hello. It's to promote some new project from the former guitarist of Tin Machine and provide links.

A brazen spammer was found right here in this folder/sub-forum!

User : doooogs85

Thread : viewtopic.php?f=6&t=20362

edit! (that feels good) I found this spam from the same user in the PGM folder. viewtopic.php?f=13&t=20361

A quote from one of the posts:

""We're too old to be paddled," Erica DeRamus said. "This is high school. We are seniors. If you're going to act up, give us another option besides getting paddled, wedding dresses because this is not the 1940s. We don't take corporal punishment now."
"The thing that I would say is the difference between patience and tolerance," Holloday said. "They're young and sometimes they make young people's mistakes and we're very patient when those things are made, including this. But we're not tolerant of bad behavior or defiance."
what's your opinion?

prom dresses,from basic to fashion trend"

(I provided the user ID and the quote, with the former links removed & now underlined, in case they delete it and go back in to hiding.)

More spam...

user: kaywendy1n
thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8521&start=20
quote from the spam, links removed, that they may not dodge a bullet: "As component of the original AM90 Flywire releases, Nike is arranged to discharge the Grid Pack Nike Air Max 90 Flywire. The Grid Pack AM90 Flywire attributes a Grey canvas upper with whitened Flywire strands Air Max 2009, whitened accents, a Grey Swoosh, as well as a White/Black midsole. The Grid strike comes on the ankle collar.After we previewed them a prolonged although back air max, the Nike Air Max 90 Flywire is ultimately going to strike retail."
