SPAM - Read This.

SPAM
AND YOU!


Yes, we've been getting a lot of spammers/adbots/etc lately. Thanks to everyone who's reporting it, the staff can't constantly monitor all the forums and we rely on post reports to be able to address spam (and other problematic posts) in a timely manner.

That being said, PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM MESSAGES; it makes it a lot more difficult to clean up quickly if there's a whole thread (i.e., replies) rather than a single post (the SPAM).

Also please stick to the Report Post function: do not MSN / text / phone / email / Facebook me about it, I'm not on duty 24/7 -- and odds are it'll get taken care of more quickly if the whole staff can see it.

Ill admit. I grew up on Spam (Real Meat in Korea was too expensive).
But at least we cooked it... and ate it with rice.

I dont get how anyone can eat this jelly preservative coated thing raw on a slice of bread... I gag just thinking about it.

Yes and they are not suppsed to. It can make the clean up process more difficult than it needs to be, especially if the spam is already a reply to an existing post.

Please just report the spam and leave it at that.

DO NOT REPLY TO THE SPAM! THE SPAM IS A LIE!

Quick spam update: as you've probably noticed, the quantity of spam has been drastically reduced over the last week. We've installed a plugin that checks with a central blacklist to block registrations, and I figured I'd provide a couple numbers.

We've had the plugin installed for a couple hours shy of seven days, and in that week, there have been 138 "permitted" registrations, of which five actually went on to post spam. In that same time period, we've blocked 2493 attempted spam registrations, or one every four minutes.

Thanks for remaining vigilant and reporting the (thankfully much smaller quantity of) spam that still gets through.

Just a big well done bravo zulu to the team that went jedi on the spam situation.
It has drastically improved so far and has made navigating the forums much more enjoyable.
Thank you.
