PostPosted: Jun 06, 2012 01:56    Post subject: Spammers with non sense posts  

In the last months a plague of spammers downloaded here and although I delete internally the vast majority of they, some pass through and they publish their non sense posts like:

- I am final, I am sorry, but I suggest to go another by.

or

- Very much the helpful information

When I find these post I delete them (as well as ban the spammer) but the FMFers could be surprised to find many announces of new message without that message. Sorry for it, is one of the inconveniences of a open, public, Forum. I try to do my best but I can't be always on line and these spammers know well their job and they find many different ways to pass the filters we have in FMF.

Again, sorry for the inconveniences, hopefully this people will find a better place where to disturb the others...

Thanks Randolph, but I can see they I have the tools for it, but you know, sometimes I do something different than supervise FMF... ;-)

The other administrators and moderators of FMF are not so familiar with informatics or they have something to do in their own life different than ban spammers ;-)

Is OK, this is just a warn for the high number of empty messages that the FMFers received on the last times.

As terrible as it may be, it is a compliment to your very visible and popular site. I have a better idea for those spammers; how about a jail toilet ? :-) :-)

Their lives are already pathetic...their existence is its own punishment

Hi to everybody!
Jordi, you have well done (and always you do well) by banning those non-sense messages or, even worse, by banning messages of insult. However it might happen someone sends spam commercial messages by misusing your names. I have been enroled to commercial channels here in Italy, but someone could take the occasion (by viruses etc) of purposing wrong business messages this way.
If some messages come from me (obviously unknown to me) I apologize anticipately.
Greetings from Italy by Riccardo.

Jordi, I hope you don't drop down to their level.

I think he means he has a real job -- selling rocks not chasing spammers!
