RECENT PORN SPAMMING ATTACK(S)!

Postby aaamusements » Sun Jul 15, 2007 1:14 pm

Post awaiting approval:

Apologies to anyone who had to experience the recent addition of 40 messages containing in some cases explicit porn phrases and links.

Admin is currently working on a system where newbies will not be able to post links until they have made a certain number of posts. This will hopefully exclude all but the most determined of spammers.

If you find a spam or porn post, please inform myself, Majestic or Admin as soon as possible by PM.
Thanks to Scousepark for doing just that today.

As I am sure you can imagine, I am personally very annoyed by this sort of thing, as I have just had to delete all 40 messages by hand! And as I did not follow any of the links I will now never know whether Christina Applegate and
Shania Twain really were tortured by cowgirls.

It seems highly unlikely, even in todays society.

Be careful out there, folks.

thanks for the quick work in removing them. thats a good idea to limit newbies until they've made so many posts, that way it will stop the spammers in their tracks. great site this one, i try to come in most days when i get on line, i've just downloaded classic very rich geezer this morning if anyone wants it let me know and i'll email it to u.
cheers

No problems Sparky! Thanks again for drawing my attention to it.

The IP address of the spammers computer had been noted and has been banned, so they will not be able to post on here from that machine again!

Any other persistant spammers will receive the same treatment.


Admin will soon be putting in place the system preventing anyone new from inserting links in their posts until they have made 10 posts.
This has worked very sucessfully on other forums.

Thanks again to everyone who helps make this forum such a friendly place! :D

thanx for your work Alex,

i'm about to get to work on a short term remedy, that should help ween out some of the spammers.. but its not a 100% success at stopping them.. the link modification might still be a few days, so for now everyone needs to keep there eyes open, and DO NOT CLICK LINKS FROM NEW MEMBERS

mark. :wink:

nothing new there then..

god it could not have been as bad as my slimming forum 2 months ago..

im on holiday and it took admin from 3 other sites, so disable my forum, while about 1,000 posts wher removed, all the posts where mad in about 10 min period :shock:

and they could just not be deleted fast enough.. ended up, the only safe way is to personaly verify all new members now..

i will be looking into the link mod tho, so might be ok for both here and there :wink:

CRIKEY!
When it was happening on here in real time the other day, all I could do was lock all the posts and delete the new ones as fast as possible.
And that was only about 40 posts each time!!
