Spammers
« on: June 13, 2011, 11:53:48 AM »
You regular forum users will notice we've had a recent deluge of spammers. I'm not sure why but I'm taking some measures to try and combat them. This involves some blacklisting functions which most likely won't affect actual human users. But, as with anything there are risks. So, if anyone has trouble or notices anything awry, please let me know via a PM or email (erik at rifftracks). Thanks!

Hehe.

RVR you reminded me. Many thanks to you and others (Compound, etc.) who have been diligent about reporting these guys. We still rely on you regulars to report spam, as we don't have a "dedicated forum admin" who is presiding over it all day. Notifying us at least gets eyes on it so we can block and now hopefully, blacklist as well.

So keep reporting them, and remember that if it looks like spam, it probably is! Don't reply, report!

Thanks :)

Good. Glad you are being proactive (to an extent) on that.

Any chance once you do get something that helps here, you could, say, give Hor-Riff-ic Productions some pointers on how to prevent forum spammers? Just askin'...


 :clap: :clap: Nice one, Thrifty.

Since I'm a late night/early morning lurker here, I've found my fair share. Do I just PM you, torgos?

If our forum gets any activity at all (which it doesn't, really), we get a flood of spambots. I've had to make it so new members must be approved. It's a pain in the kiester.

Psssh. I guess if we hafta do it the easy way. I was hoping for something that involves fashioning a canoe out of a redwood like the good old days. Back when men were men and bacon was good for the bones.

Mr 71 Sheds, that was brilliant.

I think Hor-riff-ic has been sold to and east block nation as lots of russians post there ("In Soviet Russia, Spam eats you")
