    Zombies who have invaded our planet

    That's what they are- where on else would you take the name of stolen pharmaceuticals and use them as a screen name (yeah, I saw that augmentaww! why in the heck would u use the name of an antibiotic? were cialis and levitra taken already?) Idiots!

    go peddle your crap elsewhere!

    Maybe all the Russians here are using the board to barter wives in the PM area.

    Or maybe the Russians are spying on us.

    Or Russian mafia find this a convenient place to PM.

    Who knows...

    I just went in a removed most of them...

    I had been deleting them by hand, but I finally noticed that none of them ever confirm their registration, so I went in and nuked everyone with no posts and waiting for email registration confirmation.

    So looking at these latest spam accounts, they obviously aren't posting - the only thing I see that would motivate them is that they're posting links to spam pages in the member's "Homepage" field.

    How would people feel if I hid that field altogether, thereby eliminating the thing they're trying to promote?

    For those who want to legitimately post their home page, they could do it in their signature. And since we catch all the posted spam, even if the spammer figures out what we've done they'd have no visibility.

    Jeff, I would like to keep the Homepage. But I will defer to the majority and/or your best judgment concerning this.

    Whatever is best for the forum....

    Jeff,

    That's a great idea! if you don't post you probably are not here for real Fixx information or interests. I know that there ARE people that just lurk for tour info, but they don't usually have weird links on their profiles either, yet their profiles manage to reflect their interest in the band and that they are fans.

    I think it's worth a shot to see what happens. Could you also post something in the 'terms and agreements' too about not showing interest in the band or their music? I think those become pretty evident too, esp. when they post their 'see my webcam' links or 'get a loan' sites.

    Behind you all the way on this!
    I am the winner in any event.

    Jeff's idea

    Like the idea. Could at least try deleting that field for now. If a Fixx-fan consensus calls for adding that field back to our profiles at a later time, that can be done. Thanks!

    I don't know what I just said or why.

    Thumbs up Great Work

    Thanks Jeff for making the board a lil' more visually pleasing. Annoying to see all those spammers with the crazy names everytime I sign in.

    I think it's a good idea. Like you say, the sig line, location, etc. could all be used to point to a website if someone chooses.

    Jeff,
    I'm late to say thank you for cleaning up the board. Amazing difference, and we're all glad you nuked 'em, whoever they were.
