Not a spammer. They came over here from a different board that I infrequently visit (the artist for my comic).

o_0?

Oh . . . kay . . .

I'll take your word that jandonley is not a spammer, since you know them.

It's just . . . well, that copy/paste verbatim of an older post in the thread seemed like a real tipoff, along with the sig line that was nothing but links.

I checked him out when I saw your post but did not find enough to positively mark him as a spammer in my view. I deactivated the account rather than delete it or ban him until I could investigate further. Contacting Hikaru and finding the user was known to him and not a spammer I reactivated the account.

Spammers have been very active on other boards I admin and this one left me unsure so I did not go draconian on it right away.

Just a heads up but PannyCoxhon would be a spammer. The only post here in tigermark's forum is a blatant advert.

Well, I think irraryskymn might be a spammer. No particular reason, since he/she/it spammed numerous sub-forums.

Maybe put new members on moderation? Just a suggestion.

Also, PHPBB has a function to sensor text... Why not add a filter that replaces certain words with something else?
.pl can just as well be replaced with '.somewhere_in_poland_was_a_suspicious_site'
These sort of filters can also be made to include bit.ly and other 'short link' sites often used by spammers.

He's a spammer and his 58 posts have been nuked. I also black listed the class C he's from.

Unfortunately, Ricky is the only person who can update the software for PF, so any mods will have to be by his hand.

Cheers!

Post deleted. Typical wall of text spammer.

Can't delete the user, though. That's above my pay grade.

. . . and it would seem there is a new spam mail address in town.

tenmail.ovh, temaile.ovh are in use by SEO spammers that have big aspirations of spamming our boards.

Killed of seven spam posts, blocked those emails.
