Hey dudes and chicas.
We all know that the spamaliciousness here is getting rough. There are 3 mods and Clay, and we all try to keep an eye out within our different time zones. But, there are a lot of posts and threads that we miss as the spammers get more sophisiticated.
Some of you GPers are awesome and report stuff frequently, but it seems like there are also a LOT of threads and posts that can be up and active for anywhere from 3 hours to 8 months.
I've been trying to go through each forum every morning and not only check for lame threads, but also for weird / spammy named "members" who have bumped old threads with spam.
However, there is no way for the mods to catch it all and it totally bums me out when I see a thread or a post by a spammer that went 100% unreported.
Use that report icon like bastards you bastards!
We'd rather get 45 reports than none at all. Be aggros on those hosers.
And, if you don't know what the report icon is? COME ON SON.
It's that tiny little black triangle with an exclamation point in it.
I'm on it! Already reported you for trying to sell us spam.
Nate the Great is on the case!
Thank you. That one member was kinda posting weirdly, but it wasn't until he dropped a link that I could be sure. Thanks NtG!
I send cheeky messages in my spam reporting. FUN FOR EVERYONE.
You do, and they crack me up routinely!
So, basically for anyone who wasn't aware, when you hit the report icon, the mods and Clay get an email with the spam post link which is CRAZY helpful for finding it all. Also, your comment comes through. Don't blow the chance to be funnay.
Also, spam in comments can only be deleted by Clay, so if you see those, email Clay or PM one of the mods: DRG, El Negro Magnifico, standard or myself and we'll let Clay know. (Thanks Sash!)
sophisticated spammers (somewhere, out there, there is a blossoming skronk band with this name)
also... khanman/con man. pretty sneaky, sis.
There's a time limit on reporting spams. Sometimes I just get sick of waiting for the limit to expire and move on
