Spam

Recommended Posts

Sure has been a lot lately, here ! I banned a bunch yesterday they seem to be persistent ! They keep coming back all day & again today ! First thing i do is check the "View New Content" every time i check in. So i can remove them & ban the poster. I hope this is the removal process & deleting them to the right place ! TT (The Terrorist) says he has to ban them permanently when he shows up, i don't have the power to do that. maybe you have to be an ADMIN, not sure ! But i will continue to do it this way till i am told differently !

I see the same spammers are here every day ! I guess they are hoping that their account is UN-banned !! They visit my profile every day, i hope they see my Jack-a-lope in their dreams .... lmao !!

Just wonder if this is usual ?

Those spammers make multiple accounts .

At g4 forums me and  some of the moderators watch for new accounts and if they came from India or China we would pre ban them before they got a chance to spam

It's not real people. They are spambots. Just keep doing what you are doing and when I get the chance to pop in I'll place a permanent ban on them.

I just banned a few hundred marked spammers going back to April. Just mark them as spammers and move their posts to the trash and I'll take care of the banning when I check in. I am still dealing with my multiple doctors seeing as how I lifted too much weight that I shouldn't have and tore something in my groin and back. Some day I'll listen to the docs and do as I am told. LOL!

Does Besttechie use a Captcha and confirmation / activation email for new accounts?

That generally works.  If not, making all but a few of the boards "hidden" to non members will make the board seem smaller and not appealing to them (and the bots will generally just post in the public boards).

Or they will choose usernames that are easy to spot - either ones that show a company name like livewellfitness, or something that is spammy in its own right.........Luckily, we have good staff here that can get rid of this crap,

24  hrs and only 1 flagged as spammer, i think they are slowing down ! Wonder if they get tired of being unable to post & go away, at least for a while. I know they are programmed but someone has to run them !

Just some thoughts here !!
