We have been getting hit with Spammers almost on a daily basis now. Guess its part of how wide spread this site is now.
Thanks to Liz on our team who handles most of these problems while many of us are asleep.
Yesterday we got hit with two:
The flooded threads with total nonsense. It takes time for any of us to go in and delete all their posts, there is no easy automated process. Then we have to take actions to block and ban those members and their IP access.
But thats only the beginning. These spammers like to play games. Thats why I am convinced they first register here under another member name to scope it out. They see the different threads. Then they register under the name they are going to spam with and hit different threads. Some of them new, some not so new and some very old. So they pick what they want to hit.
The end result, all of those 'hit' threads now become current and appear as if they to be new.... Thats a pain to all of you...
