Spammers again!

Post by RetroGamerUK »

Although the new and improved anti-spammer thingies here seem to be working, meanwhile over at the secret atari forum http://atarilegend.com/pbpBB/viewtopic.php?p=395#395 Rebecca2467 seems to be spamming away there without any problems at all!
Not checked to see if any other spammers are vandalising this invaluable backup forum 8O

Had forgotten about this forum. Doing my moderator duties now ..

Deleted the post by Whgrkwwz but I can't delete the members as not got that level of access.

Brume - I reckon the first 50 people on the joined by list (sorted in Descending order) can be removed as none have posted anything (or if they did, they've been deleted).
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Will be handy to have the backup forum at hand then, for all us who just can't wait a full weekend :D

The latest registered user on Atari Forum, sexo-por-cam is a spammer. Probably best to delete the accout before spam posts start appearing.

This is getting annoying now. Two more.

Desty if SS can find a single IP doing this then it's a simple matter of banning the ip from the forum administration centre.

If it's a range of ip's then I'd stick a deny from xx.xx.xx. in a htaccess file
There's always ban by http_referer too if it's the same referer passed every time.

I'm having a similar experience with my forum which is more of an annoyance than anything else. Referer spam... They mess up the apache logs.

It's not even good spam either. Just crap.

Brume. If you can give me Mod status I'll keep an eye on this. I pop in every few hours on most days.
