The War on Spam

Postby joe » Mon May 15, 2006 9:47 am

Zero Tolerance Towards Spammers

sorry spammers, your shit isn't welcome here. your droppings will be deleted and you will be charged with trespassing. go away. we don't care about your shit.

WTF is joe talking about? Well, just like any other board, spammers will drop by and post messages regarding pharmaceuticals, stock tips, viagra, or what ever. I see it on boards I moderate. This has nothing to do with drunken gay porn that most of us enjoy at 4AM, rather shitting little rodents who do nothing but spam posting boards all day.

Ain't happening here.

Hey Newbs and Lurkers... If your account gets deleted, drop me an email. we've been getting about 20 spammers/week from China and Russia establishing accounts to spam the board. If you are legit, do post up as "lurkers" may get deleted.

I have changed the spam deterrent for registration to a question instead of a CAPTCHA code. if anyone has problems registering and cannot answer the question, send me an email :wink:

I'm working on it too. We probably need to ban some new IP address hosts.

Just an update that I deleted about 50 new registrations from yesterday. Looks like we are back to our last legit registrant, Chad Walter, I hope this helps and I want everyone to know that Joe and I are doing our best to keep up on this.
Cheers,
Geoff
