I just cleaned them up. I know it does little to remove any concerns over the spam invasion.

I may not be posting alot right now, honestly Im a little burned out on being on the computer in general. But know I do log on several times a day just to see if anything needs cleaned up.

Thanks for all your efforts DinkMaster. I have some more control over this as well, aside from pernamently banning users. I can ban IP addresses and even email suffixes. So if you see a common email suffix let me know and I can ban it. Or look at a user and ban their IP address’. I will look into a more permanent solution involving spam filters, anything new that has been released recently.

We’ll keep working to make this a great site, sorry for the junk posts.

For some reason most of our spammers are related to shoes and purses. I delete/ban at least 20 or so threads a week relating to these two topics.

So you’re the one that keeps deleting those posts! Now where am I supposed to buy my accessories?

I’ll be working on a spring line this winter as a matter of fact. Something for the everyday guy who likes to fish in spandex, should be real sexy….wink

The problem is that anyone can become a member of this forum, so those spammers can sign up and post.  The only way I can think to get around this is some sort of acceptance by an admin before you can post which will mean allot of work.  These spammers get paid by the links they post, so they will post them anywhere possible.  If they have to go through more than 1 step to get in, they will most likely go elsewhere.  My guess is that you cannot just filter their IP address, but that would be a start.  Just my thoughts.

They could set it up so it needs admin verification, but then only the root admins could approve. That would be brownshelf and afilius. Both of those guys only work this site “part time”. KVD would need to hire a full time admin just to approve people. Then you have the problem of knowing who is real and who is a spammer at the time? Would suck to turn down a real person because you think they are a spammer.

You can filter through/ban IPs, but they use a dynamic IP filter to post them so every IP is different even if it comes from the same computer.

have them show a picture holding a fish or with rod and reel in hand, that would get about all the spammers.

What if we just “bump” back into the previous topic.  This way we can all sort of be a block watch.
