Spam

Recommended Posts

There are two people spamming us via guest posting lately. Just report the posts and do not quote the post. I record the IP of the spammer and block them in the firewall. Each of these spammers has multiple IP addresses, so it will take time to grab them all, but eventually they will be totally blocked.

Thanks,

Drew

Thanks Drew, Question for you just to make sure everyone is clear on this including myself. If we see the spam post, we just hit the Report Link at the bottom of the post correct?

Exactly. You can leave a comment in the form that it brings up... don't worry if it quotes the spam there. Only myself and the other admins can see the quote so the spammers don't get any advantage from it.

Made a couple of changes that should reduce the number of spam posts you see. Admins will still see the posts, but it won't be visible to the general public.
