1000 Members and spam bots

Post by Peach » 27 Dec 2018 04:50

Happy to see we have 1000 members now. :icon_e_smile:
Thank you all so much!

We're sorry about the spam bots who post crap on a daily basis. We're working on it. Seems a problem many forums have lately.

Cheers,
Peach

Thanks Peach. Just informed you about one of them but I note there seems to be another in the topics thread on this forum. LZ

Yep, more have sprung up. They're like mushrooms, only much less tasty.

Maybe a lot of the new members are spam bots...

They are not bots, these spammers signed up. It's terrible.

I agree. I think it would be too costly to pay humans to do this.

Peach, does it help you or save you time if I use the “!” to report the spam posts? I’ve been reporting them, but if it doesn’t do you any good, I’ll just ignore them.

It helps when the spam is a post in an existing thread, I can miss those.
You don't have to report spam topics, I see these myself.
Thanks for asking. :icon_e_smile:
