ClaytonFlusy - fkd up spammer?!

Postby The Spice Girls » 27 Jan 2017, 08:16

Did anyone else receive message with hieroglyphics from that "newly registered user"? They spammed me twice in last six hours or so.

Can we have him banned please?

Thanks.

I've gotten two as well. It's spam from a Russian knock-off store. Can he/she be banned please?

Hi everyone! If you could please use the Support & Suggestions forum to let the mods know about any further spam problems, that would be very helpful. :hug:

Unfortunately DenDen has a serious spam problem currently. There's almost 10,000 queued posts & threads that have been made by spammers over the past month. :x I assume none of these are actually visible to normal users, because posts by newly signed up members have to be approved by mods before they "go live" on the forum. Sadly these threads are all visible to mods though, and the forum that is getting the brunt of the spam is Small Talk. It has rendered this section practically unusable for us. The only reason I noticed this thread is via DenDen's home page view, which shows this was the last topic to be replied to.

Frustratingly it is out of mods hands to be able to deal with this problem efficiently. The scale of number of spam users & threads is too immense for us to have a quick solution to, and we don't have the powers to change things like the antispam settings. For some unknown reason, these spammers have found a way around the current antispam settings.

As far as I'm aware there is no way for mods to be able to tell that spammers are sending spam private messages. :( So if you happen to receive any further spam messages from different spammers, please let us know by posting about it in the Support & Suggestions forum, and let us know the username of the spammer - then we can ban them. We would advise that you don't actually open these PMs.

Dennis is going to look into these problems asap, so hopefully it won't be long until DenDen is back to normal!

(Sorry for the TL;DR!)
