Spammers!

Post by wargamez » Mar 8th, 03:40

Installed a modification today to try and reduce spammers with their online pills and sex.

It's has just been getting worse - I don't want to log in twice a day just to delete garbage posts.

Apologies for this junk also.

Oh cool. Is the filter keyword-based?

No, I thought people may want to use words like pills....and sex, well, as long as it's not about britney....hehe

There's a special question asked at signup now, hopefully that will stop those automatic spam bots driving me nuts.

Spam bots have been nipped in the butt....I'm getting 10 emails a day saying that people are trying to spam but aren't allowed in.

At least they've all been nice enough to lump their ads in the same section.

Just a couple of things: there are still offensive advertisements seeping through into the manual deletion stage; which means they may get seen before they are deleted. A word to the wise: if you see something that could be pornographic, unless you are into it, don't open it. The ads are not exactly text links.

And to the other kind of spam: a green drink is much better than Viagra. :lol:
