Spammers!!

Postby mindy on Sun Jul 15, 2012 6:27 am

We need to get rid of the spam and porn here!! It is very frustrating that there is so much and the user Wayclell should be
removed as that person has been a member since june 29 and he/she is a spammer! Maybe we need a few more people with
the capability of removing the spam because no one can keep up!

Mindy, our dear Elsie is away from the forum for a little and I, as a moderator cannot do much because moderators can erase only one post at once (and they spam 500-600 post for account! This is every day! And they are more than one person lately! Some days ago it took me over two hours to erase SOME post... I was deleting porn first of all, but as a human I cannot delete more, really) until... Yesterday! I am admin now until Elsie will be back... And with my new admin power I can delete the user AND all his post with one click!!! Yeyyyyy!!!!

Oh, one more thing! Please, If you see a spam post that I have not seen, please click on the "!" icon you find in the right top corner of the post itself, this way it will be reported and I can easily see it and erase the spammer and all! ;)

Thanks! I will do that! I hope you don't think I was upset with you! I know how hard it is to keep up. I was just very frustrated cause they were on the same time as me and they were posting like crazy!! I think you need a helper!

Sweetie, nooo I don't think you were upset with me... I WAS upset with those spammers!!! Expecially with those who post porno, cause I have to see those gross images to erase them! But now, as an admin, I can erase them as users without seeing a single image! :D And it just takes me MINUTES instead of hours! ;)

Mindy I am sorry it is so hard for me to get on the net. It is a long story. grrrr Being my mother just died also I am fighting to not be depressed and hopeless. I am trying to find a way to get back on the net as I am now without any income at all. I try to at least log in every other day and Carota also is fighting them now. I was not sure how to make her an admin. So hopefully we two can keep up with the jerks. Big Hugs Tenderspirit

Thank you Mindy. Hopefully we can use a wildcard and start banning the worst spammers email addresses. Seems like many of them use the same service. But some use darn gmail so can't ban that with a wildcard or it will ban all the ligit people. grrr Just don't know how they are doing automatic posts like they are. If I had my internet I could do some darn research and see if there is a way to stop them. Well life goes on, hehe. Big Hugs Tenderspirit

Elsie I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I am glad Patrizia has had time to help you with the site. Your such a sweet soul I know this has to be a really rough time for you. I miss coming here and talking to everyone. I got sucked into those stupid facebook games. It is an addiction Im trying very hard to break. I will say a prayer for you hun. I also hope things will better for you soon. HUGS

Thank you Kie! Finally I have rented a small store and have the internet again. I am so sick of the spammers. Now there is some crap going on that they are posting just one post but there are about 100 or more of them so have to get rid of them one at a time and ban them. Hope I don't ban anyone by accident. ugh Big Hugs Elsie
