Spam attack
« on: November 15, 2008, 05:57:04 PM »
Today I already deleted 3-4 spam posts away. Looks like a new spammer attack to the Forum, like we had a couple of years ago. I've been online a lot today, but can't promise to do so for the next weeks, so I'm sorry if more spam posts might cause inconvenience for Forum users.
Hopefully Klaus is already testing new anti-spam technology.  :)

Again about 5 spam posts to be deleted today.
Hope this won't start to be as bad as it was a while ago (2006?)...  :(

I don't know Klaus - you pop over to England and everything goes wrong...

I've also been deleting spam posts about drugs for sale.

...Today I was very tempted. ;)

Everyone's mentions what Klaus has done for this website Uli, but Klaus and I both know you are the engine that keeps this forum in good moderated order.

Uli the engine... Never Buried by the Machine.

Thank you. :D

Too right.
It is very comforting to know, that Uli is watching over forum. :)

Not yet, maybe, not yet...  ;)

Yes I look in whenever I can - due to much work (as I'd expected for Nov-Dec) there's not so much spare time left right now for the upcoming weeks.
Only 1 spam post to delete a few minutes ago. (But a lot to read about the Earthbound event!)

He he, cheers Fred. And thanks for your kind words, Tj and Klaus.
I'm obviously internet addicted, so I keep looking into this Forum...  ;D
