Naming and shaming...

Postby TheMistress » Mon May 08, 2006 8:14 am

Hi all,

It's a bit unfortunate that I need to post this, but... As the discussion board becomes more popular we are starting to suffer from abuse by spammers. As I am noticing them or being told about them I delete the posts and banning the users. So far I had approximately 25 of those.

May I please ask that if you notice such posts (advertising anything - drugs, porn, jobs...) you post the name of the user here as a reply to this post.

From the username I can find all posts and email to ban etc.

Much thanks,
Yael (TheMistress)

Morning!

I have a new spammer for you - jqnyqpquya is the user name.

That's a great idea and I hope it doesn't turn into too much work!


All the best

Thanks Squirrel for helping me keeping the site 'clean' and serving it's real purpose!

Deleted the post and the user and banned their mail domain too.

Much thanks and love,

Thanks BMA123. I agree, website a bit doggy, so deleted the post. As they were not offensive I haven't banned user just yet. Will keep an eye on them... Cheers again for helping me spot the issues!

Although it is not a spam post I have noticed, there are several new users signed up today whose website addresses are very similar and look a bit dodgy to me.

There are too many to list. But the website addresses are all like http://commerce.johnkreutz.net/ or http://start.myseconds.com/2006/5/6/sta ... e-business

There are also several registered on the 15 May with similar web address as following:
http://casinoreview.lokring.com/2006/5/ ... ker-party/

The following users also look a bit dodgy to me and have not made any posts:

boygirl0
fioricetpz
iedwinxt
user_zxtjwvk

(As you can all tell I'm a bit bored at work at the moment :lol: :lol: )
