Spammers

What's up with the influx of spammers? I've seen 3-4 different ones in the past day or two.

Re: Spammers

They come in waves. It's not as bad as it's been in the past.

Re: Spammers

Gotcha. Seen a few here and there before, but I wasn't sure if it was related with the whole VS security issue.

Re: Spammers

Nah, all someone has to do is create an account and post whatever shit they want. How much time do these retards waste logging onto any forum they find, only to post a link to some crap that no one is going to click.

Re: Spammers

There was a point where we were getting 50+ spammers per day. This is nothing.

Re: Spammers

It had quieted down for a while, now I just knocked out 2 of the pricks in the last 5 minutes. I like using my little ban hammer.

Re: Spammers

Loads more today, random titles and usernames with a link that maybe to a ball game (or could be a fishing attack).

Re: Spammers

It seems that there's always an increase on the weekends. Are admins and mods more active during the week so they can clear them faster? Do we have really bored angry ex-members that have nothing better than to mess with us? Now they are using real titles like "Need Fiche". The usernames gives it way on legitimacy tho

Since all the Staff volunteer's to moderate,the time we spend on the forum moderating is time that we squeeze in between our careers,our families,our hobby's,etc, There have been very rare times when not a single staff member is logged on.

Since Im newly retired from work,I have a good deal of time to be here but I would have to literally refresh my browser every few minutes,all day long,to catch these sneaky spammers.

I can spot a spammer a mile away,the wacky thread titles and usernames are a dead giveawy. But there were some clever tactics used during the few weeks of the Olympics and today's Fiche thread took a bit of thought :

Re: Spammers

@oldgixxer That was in no way a critique...just an observation. You guys and gals do a fantastic job of keeping things running smoothly. Id get rid of those spammers for your guys if I could.
