Where Did The Spam Go?

#1 Post by Ms Thrifty » Thu Jun 25, 2009 8:37 am

I should have known it was too good to be true when I logged on earlier today and what appeared to be a new free film post turned out to be spam which was replicated in every thread. But it has vanished (great), seemingly without mention, unless I've missed something (e.g. on that mysterious Wordpress section).

Why would people want us to mention the spam, it's best deleted ASAP and forgotten, the less people click on it the better!

Sorry, and I won't , then, in future, in the unfortunate event that it happens again. I was just puzzled that there seemed to have been no discussion of it whereas usually, if anything strange or untoward happens, other members mention it. And yes, thank you from me, too, Beate.

Because of the spam AYBG has introduced a system whereby first posts need to be approved before they go through. Which is a great idea but it means that some Free Films posts will be delayed as long as some old members still haven't posted on this new site. Therefore, can I please please ask everyone to post something, say hi to old friends, whatever, but if you haven't posted before on here and you post a code it won't go through until we click the Approve button. And as far as I can see we don't get an email for every post that needs approval.

Yay, it works! AYBG's first post defences have just caught a genuine spammer. Good riddance!
