SPAM

I have emailed Jeff, but haven't heard back. I tried to delete posts one at a time but this jerk puts them up faster than I can take them down. I would nuke them if I knew how. Not sure I have the authority. Can only hope we hear from Jeff soon.

Glenn, thanks for your effort on that. What a pain they can be, eh?

Re: SPAM

Obviously Jeff has been hard at work. I've asked how I could help more, especially if he's off camping.

Re: SPAM

That was a bot. You can't delete as fast as it posts.

Re: SPAM

I'm not too sure if it was a BOT as they would of been able to do thousands of posts in a second..and they need to do some "screen scraping" to replicate the forms that are served up on the Web, plus they were creating "topics" not just posts.. Probably someone who gets paid in a different country to just add this stuff.. an agency that gets paid by the click.. anyway I deleted the account and will try some other deterrents that doesn't make it too hard to join the forum.. I was on a trip at Lake Tahoe and just happened to check in at a coffee shop (w/laptop) to see how everything was going and of course noticed the "stuff".. So I might need to invest in some web browsing phone to monitor the site, or some text alert to the phone.. as I'm planning on doing some more traveling in the next couple of months.. We'll come up with something..

Re: SPAM

Ok.. I was thinking of adding a limit of 25 posts per day per member as way to discourage Spam..when it does occur.. any thoughts?

Re: SPAM

No worries with that Jeff, even a babble fingers like myself does not post that much.

Re: SPAM

sounds good to me. Another idea, instead of you buying a mobile internet device, is just give another Mod your cell phone number. Then you can clean up the forum on your laptop when you have time. I personally don't mind waiting a few days. I think all of us members are patient.
