Spam clean-up list #1 (permalink) Wed Aug 06, 2008 19:42 pm   Spam clean-up list
 

.
I thought it might be useful to have a thread in which forum members can post info about (or links to) spam that needs to be cleaned up/deleted in the forums. Anybody who spots spam in the forums can post the info here for moderators. I thought this might make life easier for the mods who have the "enviable" duty of having to spot and then also deal with spam.

I'll start the list off with a new "user" named jocelyn513.
http://www.english-test.net/forum/search.php?search_author=jocelyn513

Jocelyn will be easy to spot because she joined today and immediately posted 6 identical spam advertisements.

EDIT:
I see Barb_D has already spotted Jocelyn. Maybe this thread should be called "Aisle 4" :lol:

Good idea, Amy ! :)

I found one more spammer, here's the link to his/her (do they really have sex? maybe I'm better off refering to them as it) profile: http://www.english-test.net/forum/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=10907

Hi Alex

I don't know how you identified that one as a spammer, but I do know that there are quite a few new "members" who signed up around the end of July with, shall we say, exxxtremely suspicious-sounding names. :lol: I guess Slava will have to deal with that bunch.

Hi, Amy
In fact very easy, the only post he had made, contained some sort of adverticement regarding an image-editor program. But I think Alan had deleted his single post before you could see it :)

If you could kindly remind him about the dodgy members, I'd be most grateful - just in case I have a senior moment and forget.
Hi Slava

I had sent you a PM, but since it was not read, I've now deleted it.

I had made a list of some of the "dodgy" new registrations that appeared at the end of July thinking that you guys probably would rather not have members with X-rated names. (They're probably all spammers anyway.)

If, in fact, the list I made would be helpful to you, just let me know and I will forward it to you.

You're welcome, Slava.

I've now sent you (via PM) the list I had made of recent registrations with "dodgy" names. There are quite a few of them. If you need any help deleting this sort of garbage, I would be happy to help with that too.
