well, 3 pages of it. Just ban the IP of that person.
Indeed it is a lot of spam. There aren't any mods online to delete it though.
I was only gone an hour (making supper), but it is clear for now...
Raze, you need to shed your mortal coil and become a spirit of pure energy.
Frankly I find it very insulting that you haven't already. Don't you CARE??
And there's more spam...
Hope that Larian can do something about this a bit more permanent and automated so poor Raze doesn't always have to clean it up...
How quite annoying. I've just deleted about another 20hundred or so examples of the same old rubbish but unfortunately I don't have the ability to suspend problem users. I'll clear up periodically while Raze is having some hard-earned sleep but I'm in the middle of dying my hair at the moment (yes, I'm sitting here typing with my head covered in orange gunk and cling-film!)
Spam is being removed much quicker now, thank you whoever is moderating things.
However, there needs to be a more permanent solution, I have never seen a forum with this much spam.
There are literally 50 spam topics each day.
There are some forum security updates planned, but I don't know how soon they will be implemented.
Whew! I was expecting to come back to find many more pages of rubbish to delete having taken an hour out to do some exercise and have a bath! Thanks for not being asleep when you should, Raze.
good luck mods! There is another batch of spam http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anwy2MPT5RE
Spam cleaned and 2 users perma-banned.
WTF - SPAM!!!
just deleted what spam I saw
You know, the worst spammers are the ones who post a spam thread every 20-30 seconds... So, if nobody spots it right away, then we end up with 40+ spam threads...
deleted as much I could before my computer crashed
I got the rest, and another that tried to start again a minute ago.
EDIT: good response time on that last one; I tried to delete a spammer 26 seconds after they posted, but by the time I opened a new tab they were banned.
and again..whew such spam very urgh ..
gj though, hope forum modifications come soon to make your life easier
And again and again... just cleared out another bunch, that must be about 500 topics I've nuked in the past day.
... actually, make that another couple of hundred. Sigh...
I've cleared up the latest splurge of vandalism, but I'm sure they'll be back soon.
Edit: and sure enough, within just 22 seconds of me posting this, the astrology spam resumes...
just delete or disable the Account and block the E-Mail Address
I've disabled very many of the accounts and the email addresses vary, as do the IPs. It's quite annoying, really. Hopefully an update to the forum software will help. I'd rather see some sort of pre-emptive spammer detection than reverting to something like flood control, which is mostly ineffective and just annoys everyone.
Don't forget to click notify moderator for any spam posts. If I'm busy at work I might not have the time to constantly refresh the forum page to check for spam. However if I get an email telling me there's spam I can jump on the forum and start deleting.
Another round just started. Why is there no security on this site?
update the forum software - it will help!!!
Got rid of the latest group, will hover for a few minutes to see if it starts again.
