Spam killers!!

Postby purtington » Mon Dec 04, 2017 12:36 pm

Please fxpansion can somebody not deal with these spammers?

This morning someone/thing who goes by the name of "rymhfntgkfgh" posted 583 post new posts of drivel or Chinese symbols.

Is there no way these people can be stopped?

How about making one or two regular contributors on here moderators and give them the power to delete messages and the profiles of spammers?

Or how about limiting non registered users posts to one every 2 weeks?

I appreciate that there are plenty genuine readers who are thinking of buying from fxpansion and have questions but limiting them to one post a fortnight wouldn't be too hard and they can always ask a bunch of questions in the one post if they need to.

Hey Steve,

Thanks for raising this and our apologies for the disruption it's causing. We're working to ensure it's removed ASAP and prevented in the future.

Cheers

Hi Steve,

Just an update - we took the forum offline to do some tidying and we're now back up and running. We're looking at further preventatives we can introduce to prevent further issues from occurring.

Thanks again for your vigilance and support.

Lawrence

Yeah I thought the same, although it seemed to disappear for a while it's back as bad as it ever was.

Perhaps the new measures are only in force on the most frequently used forums as I've not seen any on the BFD3 forumn
for a few weeks now.
