Looks like a hacker, feleciaxz4, has been a busy busy little twerp!
I'm not sure why the Admin's haven't blocked and deleted that account yet. Someone must be sleeping at the wheel.
Well, I don't know why his posts haven't been cleaned up, but the site was not hacked per se. He just came in as a newbie and posted 26 times. That quickly got him out of the range for regular members to be able to delete and remove him. I know I reported several.
Regular members can delete and remove a spammer like that?
I had no idea and was actually thinking how helpful it would be if I could do that myself.
Guess I will try and figure that out next time one comes along?
His account does not appear in the "Registered Members" section, and you get the "Error" (consistent with him having been deleted) message when trying to view his profile page. I've started reporting his posts as "Residual SPAM" as well. "?"
I dont know where the reports are going but they are not coming to me. I have every spam filter turned on do not know what else I can do.
Okay, I just reported your post above. Did you receive it?
This morning is a rare one, no new spammers registered over night... or, someone else has done house cleaning before me today.
I changed it to where I have to approve every new member updated some spam stuff hopefully it fixed the issue. They will figure it out again eventually.
If you aren't receiving reports, then it sounds like the techies need to get involved.
Gotta love it. The clown which prompted this thread to be started had 26 posts in various threads. His posts were not purged when his account got banned. Don't know if that is because he managed to post more than 25 messages prior to being vaporized, or some other anomaly happened.
Great I banned and spammed him
They do not show for me anymore idk.
I believe that what Brian was suggesting, is that if you're not receiving the reports sent... then your "Tech Support" folks might want to look into why that software feature isn't working correctly.
Yes sir I know what I'm saying is the tech guy disappeared on me so there isnt one right now.
And I'm saying the post but the one bot do not show up on my end anymore so if yall are still seeing them that is also a problem.
Hopefully these latest actions I took really cut down on the spammers.
Otay, sucks that your support guy ghosted on ya. The newly implemented feature does appear to be holding them at bay presently.
Maybe you guys are saying this, but a guy I sent over from the Hide to join came back to me with these words:
"Tried 2 different browsers. On the sign up page, always stuck with:
reCAPTCHA verification is loading. Please refresh the page if it does not load.
Do they know about this?"
