Special thanks to the SPAM spotters
 
Big Jim mentioned how much help the members are in spotting spam and reporting it-----

We really do rely on all the help we get from all of you---
For the new members---there is a red dot with ! in the middle---

that's the report button---

if you see spam--press the button and our butler will tell us when he brings the tea or evening snacks----:laughing:

Seriously,thanks from all of us,including the butler.---Mike----

I run a few forums, some of them I had to shut down registrations because it got so bad. So I know the feeling. I report as I can. The shorter period of time those posts stay, the better it is. It's funny how some forums get hit harder than others when it comes to spam.

Mike thanks for that, I have seen spam but was unsure how to report, now I know :)

oh'mike 01-29-2013 05:18 PM

It comes in waves--some days not much---then a major spam storm---

I wish it were the edible kind----we'd all be able to sell the extras and retire----

i'm a little torn. I feel like I should be reporting these posts:laughing:

I know the feeling. we get it all the time in the funtoo forums, as you say sometimes is steady blast all day long and then nothing for weeks.
We try stronger better techniques to prevent it, but is only so much you can do, without blocking out new users also.

I respect your job, it is not easy. Once you stop it, will be soon they will figure out another way.

Go right ahead---the butler can bring me some sherry and toast and save a trip.

BigJim 01-29-2013 09:14 PM

Sherry and toast, man you guys at the top have it easy.:whistling2:

We really do appreciate your help reporting the spam and trouble posts, without all of you this would be a really tough job, thanks.

I find it strange that a lot the spam on this site seems to be coming from Vietman.
What possible good do they think it's going to do them to post something that no one can even understand.
On other sites I see more of the broken english, and sort of making some silly statement remotly related to DIY but always include an erl to there web site.

I'm sure we have Vietnamese members/lurkers here that can read it.

Spam?
I love "spam"! (Fried, with some Maple syrup!! - Mmmmm!)
I like to get on this place at 2:30AM and see new members with multiple
posts, filled with "Baloney"! (Got to give "Baloney" equal time!) :)

The problem I have with some of these "spam" posts -
They're not just "adverts"/"pitches"....
Some of the "live-links" these people post; are of a malicious, nasty nature!
Best to be removed, as soon as possible!

Hey!! -
"--M--" - could you tell the Butler, I'd like a nice Burgundy with my spam!?!
Room temp. - of course!
Also -
Tell one of the drivers; the Rolls Royce needs a tune-up.
Not to worry!! -
I'll take the Jaguar!

Thanks!

If you think the Rolls needs a tune up wait until you drive that Jaguar---glad I don't have to pay for the gas.

Yeah!
Worked on a person's house -
He had a nice XJ 12 -
He told me -
A week in the shop - every month!

Ok! -
Can I take the Lamborgini?!? (SP?)
If not -
How about the Bentley?!? :)

Thanks!

Not in the winter----never in the winter---but the Land Rover is all yours---she's old but tough and

nobody will notice another scratch----we never did fix the hole from that rhinoceros that went after

Jim ---what a choice for a guard dog---that thing chases every thing.
