Spam Machine member or virus?
« on: August 17, 2005, 09:38:00 PM »
Hi John
It appears the board has some kind of gremlin. I don't believe it is human but some machine generated virus that has attacked the board to advertise on line casinos. I have not seen this on any other board so I will assume there is some kind of blocking mechanism. There are at least two "members" who aren't glove25 and card94. If you don't do something their posts will greatly decrease the usefulness and enjoyment so many get from this board and that would a tragedy in my opinion. Please see what can be done soon. [:(]

Thanks Alex,

I picked up on this yesterday afternoon and deleted several posts and User ID's.  Looks like they came back last night.  I have gone through and cleaned up the board.

Will keep you posted, if need be.

John

Spammed yet again. Always the same thing with the number at the end of the name. Weird. [:0]

Yea that's the latest. Weird thing is I have never seen this on any other board in the four years I have been doing this. Some boards require a validation process where you sign up and they send you an email then you follow the link in the email before you are allowed to post. I don't remember if we had to do that here or not. It is pathetic that these people think they can profit by this. [:(!]

our guestbook for my band gets spammed all the time, I delete about one post evry day or so for about a eek and a half then it stops for about a month then bam again with the spaminator.
You probably dont see it because they get on it quicker or something.
