    SPAMMERS, READ THIS BEFORE WASTING YOUR TIME.

    THERE IS NOT A PERSON HERE THAT COULD GIVE A FLYING MONKEYS NUT SACK WHAT YOU ARE SELLING OR PROMOTING.

    YOUR SORRY EFFORTS TO SHAMELESSLY PROMOTE YOUR PATHETIC LITTLE PRODUCT WILL BE FOR NOTHING. ALL SPAM IS REMOVED IN THE MORNING BEFORE THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE LOG ON. ANYONE THAT DOES LOG ON GENERALLY KNOW WHAT NOT TO READ AND QUICKLY STOP READING AS SOON AS THEY REALISE IT’S SPAM. THERE IS A CHANCE THIS COULD JUST BE A PROGRAM THAT LOGS INTO VARIOUS FORUMS AND SPAMS AT RANDOM. IF THAT IS THE CASE, THERE IS NOT MUCH THAT CAN BE SAID TO THESE LOW LIFE B*STARDS. HOWEVER IF THERE IS A PAIR OF EYES AT THE END OF THAT SPAM THEN TO YOU I SAY.

    F*CK OFF !,

    NOBODY HERE WANT’S YOUR PRODUCT !

    NOBODY !

    I am now sure that the spammers have eyes. It is not just a program. I have been watching the who is online page for a while. I saw a someone come on so checked the profile. There were several factors to how I know it’s a person, I won’t give that away here. I sent that person a message saying not to bother. They logged off. two seconds later someone else logged on, for the very same reasons I knew this was a spammer. I sent them a message saying I told you not to bother. They logged off. They should have their profiles removed.

    So Far the names of these/this spam monkey are: (I have been editing this message and adding each new spammers name to the list)

    aleanore1157 (They posted in the lab I missed them logging in, so didn’t get a chance to get rid of them.)
    trucelitnams21
    saithe5512
    dolores5v (missed this one also)
    altheas2j

    Don’t read posts by these people, unless I have got it wrong, which I doubt very much.

    Cheers for the spam support – we are trying to take measures to reduce the rubbish that is amassing on here at certain times. Bear with us everyone, normality will resume shortly – fingers crossed anyhoo!

    As Sarah said we are in the process of sorting this, thanks for your patience.

    PM me, Sara or Vicky if you care to share? We looove zapping the spammers

    For some time now our daily [sometimes twice daily] routine has been to check the new members lists and ban suspected spammers by name and IP but when there are 30/50 a day, we get a little clicked out.

    Admin and IT Support are working on a long-term solution, an intelligence question has been put in place to try and stop new spam joining but we may be a while sorting out the already registered.

    No idea why it has suddenly gone ott, brain wondered if there was some kind of key stroke software spying the board but decided I had maybe watched too much NCIS for that

    Re: SPAMMERS, READ THIS BEFORE WASTING YOUR TIME.

    I used to own and run 4 phpBB boards and they are very out dated now and support is poor.

    May seem drastic, but the best option would be to switch to something like vBulletin. This ties in with an online database known as stopforumspam, which automatically stops spam registrants from a worldwide database.
    My current boards stop around 20 registrants on a daily basis.

    Let me know if I can be of any assistance, in the last 18 months we’ve swapped all our phpBB forums over to vBulletin.

    Re: SPAMMERS, READ THIS BEFORE WASTING YOUR TIME.

    No problems dudes. I just wanna bitch slap each and every on of those shameless B**tards. I get this kind of thing on my You Tube Channel, spammers leaving comments. You Tube remove it or someone does, I used to but now it seems automatic, I don’t now what they do. I will pm ya all (sounded american in my head then), with how I know they are spammers.

    That spammer zapping icon is cool. I see people creating accounts right before the spammers pop up. If one of you was awake between about 4-8 you could delete the account before they did a thing. Those hours are not good I know. I think that is the time most spam is posted.

    It is most satisfying when I get to zap them while they are still online :lol: mwhahahaha

    That’s what I mean about 4-8. You could zap loads. I found that a few accounts were all linked the same way so is quite likely from the same IP address.

    Re: SPAMMERS, READ THIS BEFORE WASTING YOUR TIME.

    But how will I ever get to buy myself that perfect prom dress without the spammers? ;)

    As a mod on another board, our advice to other posters is not to respond to spammers, and certainly not to try contacting them, as it only lets them know that their spamming attempts have succeeded in getting attention. They’re all bots anyway, not real people.

    Did not know this………had a mental picture of chinese men sitting on
    orange boxes with laptops.

    No wonder they did not mind about my PM’s.

    Re: SPAMMERS, READ THIS BEFORE WASTING YOUR TIME.

    I am not convinced they are bots. They go through the sign up process each time I message them. They may not read the main body of the message but they must see the title. I say Don’t bother with Spam it will be deleted. Each time I send a message it takes a a few minutes before that user logs off. Another profile is created and they log back on. If it is a bot, it is responding to the messages I send. There may be a database in the bot that recognises certain words, which in turn cancels the initial operation of the programme and restarts it. I am more inclined to agree with Shaz and Fox on the opinion of little chinese people in warehouses, although my vision was of some scruffy white person in a dark room.

    Mods I will get you the message about how I know they are spammers, I have been doing other things this past week and forgot.
