    Spammer Alert Message Center

    I'm starting this message in the "Question" board, so that we users who see New Users that immediately look suspicious can point them out, in case the Webmaster needs to NUKE them.

    Larissochka just registered, but the same profile information was entered (along with same URL for home page) less than a week ago on another name. Even the same misspelling of music as "musiv" in profile.

    Target identified.

    Oh, and I think it should be equal opportunity nuking, not just restricted to Russians.

    Another one:

    "cheap_been8343"

    Like "Larissochka," uses a fake birthday of 3/28/1983.

    More than 20 "newbies" have now claimed this DOB!!

    All these "members" born on the exact same day?

    Hardly-Har-Har!!!!

    Much more than 20! I'm now killing about 5-10 accounts per day with that same birthday. I'm catching them almost instantaniously.

    A couple did get by my radar earlier -- I went out to dinner and when I came back I just deleted my whole spam box, but I noticed them when the next "born in '83" spammer came along.

    Like Octo revealed in another thread, these guys are automated. Sign up and posting of spam is done without effort of the actual spammer.

    Thanks Jeff, for handling it all.

    You Da Man!

    there was another this morning, but I don't see them in the members list. Perhaps you've already sent them packing?

    Yeah, we're getting about 10-20 a day now, I'm logging in a couple times a day and nuking them.

    There's a handy feature in the admin tools area that lets me look at the most recent registrations - I bring them all up and nuke the spammers.

    I noticed that e-mail addy's on the Members List have been removed for now.

    I take it this is for protection from spammers? Yes?

    If so: Thank you.......

    Yep - I became worried that one of the reasons the spammers might be signing up is to harvest email addresses.

    I hope it doesn't cause too much inconvenience.

    sorry for anyone born for real on March 28, 1983!
