    Default Spam Attacks

    i received a P.M. which appears to be a SPAM post, yet there is no "report this person / post to moderator" option. here is the body of the message, as copied / pasted from my 'inbox':

    That's a sad specimen of what I would almost call "friendly" spam, but spam it is, though the links are to food for thought rather than porn and drugs. I think that security needs to be tightened up and registration too. There have been some grotty spam posts in the forum recently, that should not happen. Once they get a foothold - ack!

    Thumbs down spammer strikes back

    I got almost the same message this time from another user: Jeannette. An ban ip-range for those (spam bots?) spammers would be great!

    Imi este indiferent ce cred ceilalti despre mine, caci oricum fiecare crede ce-i convine lui si nu ceea ce e real,
    doar ca mi-ar fi placut sa ma vada asa cum sint de fapt, nu asa cum poate le-ar placea lor sa creada. Ei au ales deja...

    I cleaned up a load of soft deleted Spam messages by physically removing them. If a message is clearly spam, don't hesistate to remove it. If in doubt, just do a soft delete.

    Hi,

    I´m sorry for that. The problem was: New user accounts have to be activated manually. Meanwhile these users are in the usergroup " Users Awaiting Moderation". They can´t post any comment or new thread, but they can send private messages (Default setting in vbulletin).

    I deactivated that feature now!
