Spammers
« on: December 24, 2014, 09:48:58 AM »
The spammers are coming thick and fast at this season, I wonder if they have to make targets just like everyone else. I'm rejecting them as fast as I can but I'll have little internet access for a few days so this will be challenging.

If you're a real person trying to join for real purposes please be patient and I'll get to you as quickly as I can. I promise to check carefully when I do get on to ensure I don't reject you as well.

I expect a lot of work at that point as I'm getting 70 - 100 spammers a day!

Please, be safe this year.

Ironic to have a spammer comment on the spammers thread. By the time you see this it'll have been deleted and the account banned. There seem to have been a few getting through lately.

Apologies for all the spammers getting through. We had a glitch and when we got things working again we found two things had disappeared, among them was the spammer block. We'll send out the search parties and have it working again in a few days.

We get somewhere between 30 and 100 spammers every day. Thanks to Michael we have a spam filter which picks them all up and leaves them for us to deal with. If you've registered and haven't been accepted it's because your IP or email or even your user name has been caught in our spam trap.
