A few less "members"
« on: November 29, 2020, 09:31:19 PM »
There's been a big wave of spam recently and today I spent some time digging in and flushing out the turd-ball spammers.

I removed over 40,000 user accounts that were all active and created for the sole purpose of sharing *really shitty* porn links and fake passport opportunities.

I'm sure I haven't caught them all, but please continue to hit "Alert Moderator" when you see something.

Additionally, mr.cpho has joined the team of moderators to help deal with spam and the occasional ass-whipping that needs to happen.
Thanks again to the other mods: @SixZeroFour @Cellar2ful @pbe gummi bear

Thanks, @Troy. I know this has come up in the past but is there now a way to prevent/filter spam posts based on the number of links or foreign language characters?

Thanks Troy.  My right index finger has developed a callus over the last couple of weeks from removing spam.  40,000?  Holy Crap that's a lot of turds.

That's great news! Or, "Grate News," so to speak. I hope you've banned those 40,000 user shitty/spammer accounts for life!

I appreciate all the hard work that you and the moderators have undertaken.  Iím torn though...50% of the reason Iím here is for Russian porn, and the viruses associated with those links[emoji23]

You actually deleted my profile too and I had to register again. And I never shared shitty porn links.

Sorry about that man. I remember clicking yours and having 2nd thoughts because it wasn't a full match.
I appreciate you coming back to let me know - even if you also plan to hate on me forever and ever for it :)
