SPAM from user favourkarume11

  • I am not sure that was a setting, but a add-on/Mod we had for the SMF based forum.

    It requires a little more effort, because they actually have to make a few posts, but nothing they wouldn't do either to gain "access" to do their mischief....

    That's not a bad idea, Richard. I'll see if there's a setting.

    Agreed. good idea. Maybe PMs after 10-20 posts, emails after 40-50 (or more). I find people emailing me more intrusive than PMs through the forums

    I got mine today as well. I will confess to some "morbid" curiosity to see exactly what you get from someone propositioning you on a SQL Server board....:)

    No, I didn't answer. But like the C & C music factory song, it's one of those things that make you go hmm....:)

    Your lack of planning does not constitute an emergency on my part...unless you're my manager...or a director and above...or a really loud-spoken end-user..All right - what was my emergency again?

  • We are looking through code today to see if we can do something. A number of users and IPs have been banned to try and combat this.

  • I did eventually get one also. 🙂
