  • Buddhist PM's SPAM warning !

    I had a huge problem yesterday, a spammer sent messages through PM for almost all my members before I banned her/him - registered as Stephanie, email: stephanie44@myway.com - IP: 128.241.40.167

    Spammers are truly the scum of the earth

    Just wanted you to know, in case you want to block this mailaddress.

    Yeah, I got the same user registered on my site and a few others that I'm on. Really weird individual. Do you happen to remember the link to his site? I forgot to copy it so I can just filter it out on my forum.

      No, I deleted the mail, but someone should really report this scum to his ISP

          I got that about a month ago. Just a LITTLE annoying.

            Buddhist PMs are better than sexual PMs.

                Yeah, I thought about that, but I didnīt want to spam people about spam, but I changed a few things in my forum so it doesnīt happen again.

                  You currently show up as unlicensed, but the forum you run appears to be vBulletin. Please set yourself up for priority support from the members' area so our staff knows you're a licensed customer. Thank you.

                    The same thing happened to me, I managed to catch her when she already PMed half of my members. I censored the link now.
                    I was planning to mass PM my members soon and now this, this is really frustrating.

                        I'm not sure whether it's ok to post it here, I'll PM it to you.

                          Another username to watch out for is Jeanette. Same spam as this one, different name. I had to create a new registered user group that doesn't have PM privs to stop it.

                              Yep, new users on my forum can't PM or post without manual validation. After 15 posts, then it automatically promotes the account to regular. I haven't seen a spam thread in so long, I don't even know what it looks like.
