    Spammers

     Ok, in the spirit of reviving the board..........everytime I log on and check out who may be online, the user names are usually not anyone I am familiar with but have what are clearly spammer usernames.....Right now, I am browsing the forums with users like "bestweightlossprogram" and "getabiggerpenis" and "makemoneyfromhome"......can someone perhaps sift through the users and remove them?

     

    TIA!

    Re: Spammers

    I know Colleen, it is so discouraging to see these guys on ours boards.  Susan and I delete any spam posts as fast as we can and our tech guy does a cleaning every quarter to remove  members but they get crafty and sneaky. We have some systems in place to prevent the massive hacking we took about 4 years ago but without enormous resources this is what we have at the moment.  Unfortunately it comes down to money.  Deleting members is not a privilege Susan and I have.. We can and do ask that someone be deleted a.s.a.p but signing up and being on the forum is not an offense, they have to go one step further and actually break forum rules by posting inappropriate material.

    Blessings,

    LMAO, Susan!

     As long as GetABiggerPenis doesn't comment on a post about perineal stretchiness, I'm good!
