Spammer

I think we have a spammer amongst us... check out the posts by pyarhua.

I've come to the conclusion that most people exist for the sole purpose of pissing me off...

There is a group/individual/asshole(s) who have figured out how to make new accounts on a regular basis. They post up spam under different names quite often. Usually 3 posts, all dealing with crap about TV shows (wierd!). Just report them and go on. Do not reply, do not mention them, just report them.

For those who do not know about it, the little red Exclamation Point in the upper right of the post is where you report it. Click it, say it is SPAM, and file a report. You can only do one every 60 seconds, but one is all it takes.

If you are on Tapatalk, tap the post, tap More, the Report, This Forum and pick Spam.

Yeah this spam crap is really annoying. Maybe the mod's for this board allow auto approval or some such. I think Chainsaw commented about this recently, and that one of the main moderators is MIA... But dang, this is the first forum I've seen have this particular problem fairly regularly.

Its more annoying, because when its deleted the regular users can't see it anymore. However on our screen,.. its still f'kn there!!!. My suggestions and requests keep getting ignored. Ive never seen spam this bad, even on the free message boards that have 0 protection against it.

Such is the rule of honor.

Exactly my thoughts, I've never seen this on any other forum I've frequented. It's a bummer you mods still have to see the crap even after fixing it for us hangarounds.

But, here's a big THANKS! for dealing with them.

Hey all,

We are going to be installing a new tool that will catch spam at the door. I get the spam also, and try to delete it as soon as I get an alert.

We should have a new tool up soon for new members, so you will see spam reduced almost to nothing.

Is this new tool up and working yet??? Because if so, its f'n broke! Spam has at least doubled if not tripled since you posted on 11/21/12 about it.
