Spam postings....

Post by Ross Symons » Wed Dec 13, 2006 5:32 pm

Hi All,

well it seems we are to be continually spammed on here, I have been away this last ten days and came back to find many such messages, I have now deleted them. I will endeavour to delete them in future whenever I can.

Cheers,

Ross.

Hi Ross

Yes, the spam is bloody annoying, thanks for cleaning it up. We are all indebted to your spending time and effort to manage this message board.

I wonder if there is a way of filtering out the spam before it gets posted - thus saving you the job of doing it?

Hi Chris, All,

it is soooo annoying - from now on I will probably have to have people registered by myself before they can post - it is the last thing I wanted - another hurdle in the way of people who need to get questions answered.

On another note, I am very embarrassed about how long it has taken me to update the trials listings - expect some really long posts very soon.

Cheers,

Ross.

Ross I didn't want to have to make people register to post on my forum but in the end I had to but I see that the spammers ARE registered. I have the same board so I know you can ban them but it still means work. If you ever want help deleting the rubbish while you are away just yell out, I can be very vicious :)
If it wasn't for your site I don't know what I would have been like by now, a proper basket case methinks. Thanks for your great work and I hope your face is red about the trials listings!!!!!
