Spammers
« on: June 02, 2012, 11:40:30 AM »
We've recently had a couple of spammer accounts, which I've deleted. So if you notice the member number decreasing a point or two, it was spammers being zapped. I've also added their ip ranges to the ban list so we won't see any more from that particular spam entity.

I thought I'd maybe seen one or two.  Too bad we have to deal with this garbage, but thanks for weeding them out!!

Lol, Wolfy I'd have left it if there was a way, but when you delete the first post, the rest of the thread goes with it.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

Thanks. Yeah I'm disappointed too, thought we were two steps closer to 300. Ah, well. If there wasn't spam I'd have nothing to do, right? :D
