Spam?

Postby angieb » Thu Feb 17, 2011 04:26 pm

Maybe it's just because I'm not working and have more times on my hands to be on this website, but it seems like since the website change, we get a ton more spam than we did before. Maybe it's just my perspective, but is there something different with the new website that is making it easier for spammers to find and post?

(P.S. I flag them when I see them but if the website needs a spam remover I'd be happy to do that.)

Angie, thanks for volunteering! I'm pretty sure we could use you in some other capacity. :)

Because it's a forum the spam problem gets solved by the technical programmer people, and they're aware of it and trying to close the loophole (whichever one it is - I'm not a techie and don't have the faintest idea how they're blocking these things.) The funniest thing about the spam is how poorly targeted and mid-'90s it is, as always. Yeah, the high-risk highly-monitored pregnant chicks are really interested in your random drugs...

BTW, I'm not really an admin, so I kicked this upstairs. :D
