REceiving "Old" post notifications ?

Post by Shotokan101 » Thu Jan 13, 2011 10:04 am

HI Guys - been receiving a few post notifications over the past day or so that when thread is viewed there have been no updates to the thread posts for a very long time ?

Anyone else seeing this ?

This is because of SPAMMERS who very quickly get "administered out" from the forum (along with their SPAM posts) by yours truly. In today's case, it was a SPAMMER from China who was promoting handbags, etc.

Thanks chief - didn't think of that as you usually leave a "stub" post commenting that the spam had been removed :)

I do exactly the same :)

I used to put a note that spam had been removed, but i feel there would be so many cluttering up the threads, its just tidier to completely delete the spam.

Moving to forum things.

We're now deleting all spam on sight and the users who post it. Only way to make sure the forum doesn't get overloaded with nonesense.
