Re: Spam, spam, spam...

Thanx for the map link.

As for spam, here's some comic relief. It's about Spam the meat, not spam the electronic junk, but it's fun to listen to anyway.

I've tried contacting him several times via PM here at skoolie.net, and also via regular email at the contact address for the domain registration. I've never had a reply.

Was just perusing the list of posts under Classifieds/Wish List and noticed this at the bottom:

fbpfwfab, fglozbzuyt, ndtfdzjt, Skunky Bus and 2 guests

Gee...which ones do you suppose are the real Skoolie.netters? The one with English (less specifically, real language) names? (Not counting Google [Bot].)

How to pronounce "fbpfwfab," "fglozbzuyt," et cetera? "GET-uh-LYFE."

When I'm sifting through spam messages in the queue, I sort the list by author. The legitimate names really stand out & it makes moderating the spam go a little more smoothly.

Re: Spam, spam, spam...

I started a new job on Monday and don't really have much in the way of time & energy to deal with the spam. It's a shame Steve can't or won't offer a little assistance.

Re: Spam, spam, spam...

Maybe you need a "first post" thread (name it what ever is applicable) in which the only way to get approved to post is to post in the "first post" thread (read a sticky to know how to get approved... maybe include a "What's the secret password" type question with a single word answer like "Is water wet or dry?" or "What colour is the bus in the picture shown"). Make the post include something that a spammer won't post. Then auto delete the other "new" posters that don't post in the "first post" thread. It might bug a few newbies but it might help cut down on the spammers. Just an idea.
