August 9, 2012 at 2:41 pm #972917 westiStaff They are quite determined :( We are cleaning it up as we detect it. August 9, 2012 at 2:45 pm #972920 auxclassMember I flagged about 50 threads and 8 accounts for you this morning so just a matter of following the spammer tags – August 9, 2012 at 2:49 pm #972924 westiStaff Thank you! August 9, 2012 at 2:52 pm #972925 auxclassMember You be welcome I see you have cleaned up all the flags and accounts – thanks – the forum is usable again August 9, 2012 at 9:08 pm #972948 ardpeteMember I take it this is the same spam as earlier? Is there no way to keep them out :( August 9, 2012 at 9:12 pm #972949 auxclassMember Several different accounts – 15 at last count – there is some spam filters on the forum but looks like the filters are failing – maybe put any Post with “NFL” in it into the spam filter August 9, 2012 at 9:14 pm #972950 ardpeteMember That’s a good idea, I doubt anyone would need support with the NFL now the social forums are gone! August 9, 2012 at 10:58 pm #972952 ardpeteMember Agh the spams getting unbearable! Is anyone home? :( August 10, 2012 at 12:39 am #972958 jkudishMember Hi there, Thanks for your patience. We’re currently addressing the situation and all spam posts should be removed shortly. We’re also putting in measures to avoid these posts from coming through. August 10, 2012 at 12:41 am #972959 ardpeteMember Good man. :) August 10, 2012 at 9:34 am #972963 notawoodpeckerMember We’re also putting in measures to avoid these posts from coming through. :Drumming fingers on tabletop: While we’re on it………. when did Brazil become a Spam capitol? Seems like most of the recent comment spam is from .br domains. August 10, 2012 at 9:38 am #972964 ardpeteMember Measure were put in place, obviously the sneaky spammers have found a way around it. Maybe they’re excited about being in the Olympic Football finals? =/ August 10, 2012 at 12:14 pm #972965 auxclassMember Looks like they need to fine tune the spam filters a bit more – or the staff could check the forum for spam a bit more often while they fine tune the filters August 12, 2012 at 4:16 pm #972966 notawoodpeckerMember They’re baaaaaaack! Also a Napalese travel/tour spammer. August 12, 2012 at 4:18 pm #972967 timethiefMember In what way does posting here help? August 12, 2012 at 4:45 pm #972968 1tessModerator Emeritus Staff has been busy addressing the problem, but these folks are changing their names and very persistent. Not to mention annoying. And it’s Sunday… August 12, 2012 at 4:48 pm #972969 timethiefMember @1tess I suggest that this thread be closed. August 12, 2012 at 4:54 pm #972970 1tessModerator Emeritus Yeah, it’s really pointless. We are all aware of the spam hurricane. I’ve got some stuff to do so some will probably build up again unless another mod or staff steps in. Author Posts The topic ‘Why so much board spam this morning?’ is closed to new replies.
