  • Sorry about the SPAM this morning

    And thanks to Mark for cleaning it up. I am constantly trying to adapt our protection against the spambots. Trying something else today (fingers crossed)

    Re: Sorry about the SPAM this morning

    We've only had 5-Spams so far this morning but yesterday we had over 30. What I found interesting is one of the SPAMMERS on this site this morning also SPAMMED PlumbingZone.

        I noticed 6 out of 10 forums I hang out on got hit with the same spam. Also noticed a huge increase in spam in the e-mail account.

              Several forums I moderate have been clobbered the last few days, and I've been getting a lot more junk mail on my own email.

                  Must be worse than I thought as I have probably averaged one or two a week myself. Whether those are dupes of others reports or new I am not sure, but many times I come across them within a couple minutes of being posted early in the AM before going to work and that is 5 or 6 AM Eastern Time when youz guyz out West are still (or should be) asleep.

                    How about transforming links with "nofollow", which will at least make spamming the forum less advantageous.

                      Sorry I should clarify, I am not included on those who are notified via the report button. I only find out through phone calls and PMs.
