Spam Attack

TOH has been under a spam attack for about the past week now. Every instance has been reported, yet the perpetrators have yet to be contained. Today we've now got two pages of spam and can no longer help those coming for assistance because we can't find the bonefide threads from all the spam. Apparently reporting isn't do any good.

What is the answer?

Is there a system admin that we should be contacting? Do we have to call TOH corporate to get any kind of action?

Looks like the place has been completely taken over by loyalvap now. :rolleyes:

Obviously reporting spam and PMs to the moderator has no affect. They must be on vacation again.

The only conclusion I can come to is that they hire the stupidest IT people in the world.

SOLUTION

It's easy to confine SPAM rather than trying to police it.

Start a SPAM only thread: "SPAMMERS WELCOME" or "POST SPAM HERE."

It'll all be in one place and not all over the forum.

Well spoken, for a spammer. :rolleyes: Consider all your posts reported. :rolleyes:

Re: Spam Attack

I've said it before, there is a huge difference between a contributing member who's been here as long as I have with no ulterior motives, and these jackasses who are only here to post gibberish and spam trying to drive traffic to their personal sites such the likes of Marcy Tate.
