Re: Spam and advertising on the Forums

Hopefully they haven't been registered long enough to create the spam on the forum today wine-o

Looks like there is another one that has registered today  under user name  ' Teewsweit '

Oh ... Did we just spot the same one wine-o ?

Re: Spam and advertising on the Forums

Right, so the moderators/administrators have removed the spam posts...but left all my posts saying "reported"...which makes me look a bit stupid...unless I go back and delete all my own posts...

Does Jamie know how the forum is going downhill???

help

Edit...that'll be me banned then....

Re: Spam and advertising on the Forums

Hi wine~o, when I started reporting spammers I always wrote 'reported' so that others coming on could see that someone had done so. But now I just report and know that the administrators will deal with it, and then I don't feel I need to go back and delete my 'reported' meassages. Infact I usually only report one, when there is a lot, because I think that flags them to check the whole site - and I can't tell if it is one spammer using different names half the time!

I try to make my message in the report a bit amusing for the poor admins who must hate having to deal with it all the time. It is also makes it a bit of a game for me. (I am not that funny, but I will write something like 'big long spam' or 'bilingual spam' or even a bit more amusing if I can think of something!  cool )

Fascinating that spammers decide this is the appropriate thread to put their spam on! whistle

In the case of two posts before yours, Joy, the "member" was reported by me two days ago and this morning I find "s/he" has posted on multiple threads.

Yes I had reported them previously too, and more today. Very irritating!
