    RE: Spam!


    Hi,

    Is it not possible to block these trolls from spamming this forum which started on Tuesday? It's getting totally ridiculous now. The posts have not even been removed now despite being reported!

    Thanks,

    Paul

    I reported a few. It's totally ridiculous! I have to scroll through an entire page of bull**** to get to yesterday's posts, and it takes a while to get to the bottom. I think I once went through three pages before that happened.

    Hi,

    Well I was advised to NOT reply to the spam, and to report it. Both of which I have done but now the whole page_1 of this forum has been taken up with the same idiots (as last Tuesday) still posting.

    Somebody should make a spam website where people like those can post all the pointless and boring **** they want and nobody has to care, because they don't need to go on the site.

    Hi,

    We know about the spam attack and are working to stop it.
    Like in other times, they find ways to stop our spam peotection although now it was quite a long time since the last time they found a way to break it.

    Please be patient, we hope to end with this attack in the following days...

    Ah, and don't stop reporting, it is very useful for us when deleting the users.

    Cheers,

    We do manually moderate "first posts" which look suspicious.
    We have now updated the rules for considering a post suspicious and made them more strict, which means that now all the spam posts go to the manual moderation list which we (admins) and moderators review.
    Hopefully as spammers see that their posts do not get published they'll also stop posting.

    The downside is that now more "potentially ok" posts will go to the moderation queue, but 99% of suspicious posts are real spam so this should not be a big problem.

    Thank you Frederic, good work. Looks like it's still a lot of work your end.

    Trouble runs, far away, in the night.

    Their back. I've reported it. Don't really know why I'm posting this, it probably won't be seen with all the crap
