One thing that the Local has managed to achieve of late is the multiple deletion of these spammers. I came on line just now and there were masses by a bar steward giving him/her/itself the name of miguelneez or something idiotic like that. Using the spam button deleted every one of the page-wasting pill and porn peddling. The quicker we can get them deleted the better, and the greater the chance that they will eventually move elsewhere. angry.gif

Happy spam.-bashing all you great guys out there. biggrin.gif

Hey ho the merry-oh.

Though we can now delete the posts these scum leave, their trail still destroys the sequence of "Todays Active Topics" that I guess most of us use to keep up to date. Unless The Local can find a way of removing all traces of these posts after deletion, these posts will continue ruining this Forum. It an effort now pick up new topics and to find current threads, even for old hands, and probably impossible for newcomers.

Zapping doesnt solve the problem though. The active topic list is filled with these spammers posts, hiding new and current topics.

ps I see Chocowl has just zapped Newwaysys whose post was just a single almost legit advt posting. I had left it.

I agree. The only way to stop it, is to get the first post otherwise the whole side is buggered up

One more scumbag zapped - but the forum fouled up again - my best solution is that it needs all posters being banned from posting to more than 2 threads in 24 hours. Action please, The Local admin !

I just got a PM from a spammer and saw that he had started a thread re Ivory coast. I tried to block him but TL does not think it is spam

These are good responses, if spammers read what we say and do, they will realize they can't sell their trash here!!!

About posts being lost...I tried adding an * as a reply to get them back on top.

And I was thanked for doing it...if we all do it we will be very thankful to/for each other!!!

No surrender!!!

Up TheLocal!!!

God wills it!!! laugh.gif

Well, it did not comply with the site's terms of use. So I zapped it.

And gradually we are getting the forums back on track such that the sequencing is more as it was, and should be.
All those 34 spam entries per spammer per occasion were more than a bit much.
Hopefully they will find that it is not worth their while to try further. Join one minute and spend the next few posting their pill and porn peddling 'pleasantries'. angry.gif
At least The Local woke up, and made the spam button a worthy instrument to combat the intrusions.

Not when these tossers get a large number of posts in before they are zapped.

I repeat that there should be a limit on the number of threads you can post to. Any supporters.
