Spam from so called Forum Administration

Postby arnie » 06 May 2009

Hi.

I'd like to warn all the users and tssuport that someone that call himself forum administration is sending private messages with a link to a Viagra webpage.

Is there a way to stop this kind of spam?

Regards,
Fernando

Unfortunately the spammers use "holes" in the forum engine we use and it is not feasible to stop them. We tried to search for solutions, but failed.

But if i'm not mistaken, you have access to the IP address of all that connects to the forum. Why not block their IP address?

Isn't this forum closed to non MC costumers in terms of posting messages?

You could also hire someone to clean the forum.
Your member list is full of "so called users" with links to porn websites and alike.

There are ways to maintain a clean forum, though you would probably need someone 24/7 just to do that.

Fernando
