What’s the deal with the spam on the forum this past week. Another just hit tonight. I just flagged a couple posts. Cricket, please chime in if you read this.

Spam and eggs are pretty good but the kind we are getting is waste of time and data bits!

Not only spammers but junk posters like this one:

Sometime look at the pulse and look at the home pages of the new sign ups….Junk posts just taking up space

Thanks! I was just wondering, do they typically post a message across many, many threads? I’ve never seen much of this happening on other forums, and I’ve been on forums for years. That kind of activity makes me a little nervous.

Just flag them; Cricket is an ace with many kills to her credit.

How do you flag these jokers? They should be automatically deleted but no way to automatically inform Cricket on their Home Page other than PM.

Below are just a few of MANY every day that are added:

Paul I just check all of those jokers. What a collection of garbage. Your right they should be scrubbed from here.

Paul, you have seen/found more than I have!
Those spammers with that non-sensical text have been around before, just word after word for no reason.

@BurlyBob

Bob, on occasion I will look at the Pulse home page tab to see the new members signing up.

I check out maybe 15 or 20 homepages and usually find 6 or more every time I do it. Always gibberish and garbage and sometimes links which I would not suggest you click as it may go somewhere which will infact your computer.

There should be a way to clean them out or at least easily notify Cricket right from the questionable home page. They just bog up system resources.

Paul, she post something the other day about flagging them and that sort of thing. Yeah , I just scrolled up and found it. Maybe we should start a team of folks for just that purpose.

Paul, if you click that watch icon. What does that do? If it flags the guy in someway, there’s a start.

A spammed search team sounds like a good idea Bob!
I wonder what Cricket would say to that.
