I go away for 2 seconds for the Holidays and Spammers destroy the place. Hopefully I got a handle of it and deleted all the new spammers and their posts. If you see any new ones or some I have missed please PM or Email me.


Thanks for your patience,
Doug

I think it is pretty easy to tell who the spammers are, they are from places like Moldova and Russia in their profiles. I have not traded with anyone from those places yet.

Its a never ending battle. Looks like I will have to turn off registration and switch back to manually allowing people to join the forum via email requests.

Can you just delete all these obvious spammers so they cannot post again? I am guessing United Arab Emirates, El Salvador, etc. do not have a lot of SGA events.

They will just keep re joining with new email addresses and names. I have tried banning user names, email addresses, and even IP addresses nothing works.

This latest attack is why you need to just delete all these spam memberships. Now that they are "members" they can post whenever they want unless you whack them.

I guess there were some sleeper accounts that had not posted yet. Went backed and pruned all the newly created account which hopefully got them all.
