And again, in Style and Fashion.

Most seem to have " [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img] " in the box to the left of the title.

More ugly stuff in Style and Fashion. (Seems to be a favorite place for it. Huh. How Freudian....or modern, if you will.)

Oops&#33;&#33;&#33;  I&#39;ve been hitting the &#39;Report&#39; on the posts.  I didn&#39;t see this thread &#39;til moments ago. Well, sorry guys for reporting them instead of posting them here.  [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/unsure.gif[/img]

Well, I just reported this one, but I&#39;ll say it now-Email marketing in Style and Fashion.  For the past week, the spammers have lived in S&F.  They do their spam magic late at night when not many are around.

Here&#39;s another.  <a href="http://www.porthalcyon.net/community/index.php?showtopic=5653" target="_blank">http://www.porthalcyon.net/community/index...?showtopic=5653</a>  They do seem to really dig Style & Fashion, don&#39;t they&#33;  The dead giveaway is the &#39;newest member&#39; whose name just doesn&#39;t fit.  For instance, this latest &#39;find&#39; has &#39;crack&#39; in the name.  They&#39;re offering meds...

Re: Report SPAM Here

Thanks gang.
For some reason they love to spam in style and fashion. But either post the notice here or you can click report them via the forum.

JEZZIS&#33;&#33; Get rid of that revolting one-hand-mag dreck in style and fashion pronto&#33;&#33;  Some yobbos deserve a hand on the collar and the seat of the trousers for a bum&#39;s rush out of Halcyon. We have our standards.

Re: Report SPAM Here

There are a half dozen spam threads in Style & Fashion currently.  They&#39;re easy to detect with their noticeable &#39;smiley.&#39; [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I just love it when the spambots see the &#39;Report SPAM Here&#39; thread and they think that&#39;s where they&#39;re supposed to post the spam.  [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

Thank for the report, fume hood.  Getting rid of it now. 

They love fashion&#33;&#33; [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]   My favorite is, as I posted earlier, when they think that spam is supposed to be posted in this thread.

Now there is  one in Home and Garden.

Oh and one in fashion too.   I want to say F you to them, but feel that would only feed them.

Thanks for the report.  I know what you mean.  It seems the faster I delete them, the more they post.  I must say that there&#39;s a certain satisfaction in deleting one when I know they&#39;re still &#39;looking&#39; at their thread. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]

3 more in fashion.  Why did we not have this problem before? I&#39;ve never been on a site with so much spam. I think it is discouraging posters.

Re: Report SPAM Here

Yeah, I&#39;ve never seen a forum with so much spam, either.  I&#39;m here, literally, several times a day, deleting it, some of it, pornographic, and with kids coming here...  I agreee that it is discouraging to members.  Undoubtedly, there are more spammers joining than actual members.  The only thing I can speculate is, they like the &#39;Invision&#39; boards.

BTW, since you posted, I found a 4th spam thread.  While the majority like Style and Fashion, there&#39;s one particular one that likes Home & Garden.

Can you make it  harder to post?  Like only let trustworthy posters in?

I have no control over that.  Most of them are &#39;members,&#39; meaning they register.  Only a few post as guests.  My only duty is to delete them.  I&#39;m probably seeing, on average, 10 each day.  I wish there was something we could do...

Make it harder to register.  Surely other sites have strategies.  Or has it always been this way?

Re: Report SPAM Here

I just read a post by 66FordFalcon and he said this:Are the spambots able to get around a word or letters/numbers verification? I frequent several web forums that use such a verification system, and haven&#39;t seen much in the way of spam. Just a thought."

I asked another moderator from a different site he told me that this method does work, but it alos deters new members from joining because of more steps needed to take to join. 

It&#39;s just getting worse. I know I&#39;ve cleared out at least a dozen threads today.  I hate to see this happen to a site that used to be such a lively, fun and friendly place to visit, hang out and make new friends.
