Spammers
« on: July 26, 2011, 06:15:54 AM »
I just wanted to drop a line to everyone to make sure everyone knew what was going on.  The site is getting "spammed" a bunch lately.  Kirk has tons of security in place to help, but spammers and bots are great about getting around stuff.

As moderators, we can only delete what's in our categories, so even though I can see a bunch of them this morning, they are all in Luise's area and I can't delete them.  She's on the West Coast, so several hours behind me usually in signing on.

I just wanted you to know that we are all trying to delete them as they occur, as soon as possible when we sign on.

I LOVE SPAM BUT HATE SPAMMERS!!!!!

I also wanted to add that if you guys see a weird post before we get it deleted, whatever you do...don't click on a link inside of it!  Could be a virus or take you to a porn site.

Thank you, Pooh. When this first started, I was told we were now in the big leagues, as a site. What a way to be recognized. What you can all do is to not even open a post that has a title that is way off. Just pass on it and I will get rid of it the minute I am up and going. Love you all!
