Spam issue

Postby Naku Chan In Wonderland » Wed Mar 19, 2014 6:05 pm

Um, Lenny, it appears you have a spammer infestation in your forum...about kitchens....at least from what it looks like, a few threads have had posts of this spam. Please do something about it. I don't want this great forum to be conquered by spam. It's not even that delicious anyway DIS:-/

I know, I know. The bad part is: this is not something recent - this forum is always being spammed so much. Only I have been away for the weekend, so I have not been keeping up with it.

Despite all the automated spam blocking mechanisms this forum has, many spam appears to be manual and therefore harder to fight.

I'm really doing the best I can, but sometimes it depresses me that spammers are taking all the fun away from managing a forum. I wish there was a place we could report them.

I suppose you could think of it this way, if you don't take care of a house for a while, it gets dusts or bugs...and that's what the spammers are... AIW:'-(

So you just gotta keep your house clean ha ha

On the plus side, if I'm ever looking for a cheap kitchen, I'll know where to come

Apparently the kitchen company that is paying these spammers is notorious for not giving customers what they paid for. If their business tactics are like that, I understand why this spammer is so hard to get rid of.

Ah yes, scammers, I actually worked with a business like that called Vector. I don't know if it was as much of a scam and more like I couldn't get people to buy the Cutco knives because I'm not cut out to be a salesmen =w=

either way, it sounds vaguely similar. And it makes sense if this company is a scam as well they would make spam

Scam spam spam scam..... better do a scan DIS:-)
