West Coast Spam a Rama!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Spam has become so bad that after all the Mods on the East coast go to bed that's all that's on the site! I dont even want to open up SMF on my phone using the mobile app. If you go to new posts that's all that is there. I understand everyone works hard to eliminate it but it's beyond bad!

DS, I'd have to agree. A few times during the week I handle our new born and SMF is my reading while feeding her. I always use the new post list to check things out and it's all spam all the time at this hour.

Ohwell, know those guys are doing their best.

All of the forums are having these issues right now.. it seems that many spammers are using companies in India, Philipines, etc. and paying them low hourly wages to physically create registrations on popular forums and to post threads inundated with spam links.

 

We can do things like eliminate posting of new threads until you have x number of posts and we can eliminate the posting of URL's but I also want to be careful that we don't make it so complicated to post that potentially good members move on to other sites.

 

It's a real pain right now figuring out how to deal with the new spam techniques effectively.

 

I do appreciate everyone's patience and I agree that we apparently need a group of mods from each time zone to help keep this issue at bay.

Thanks Jeff, I see it late at night as well. I know you guys are just as frustrated as the rest of us. Thanks for all you're doing to keep this a great smoking forum, David.
