Spammers

Postby Steve M » Sat Sep 03, 2011 1:21 pm

When these one post spammers strike is there an option in Yabb to report them to admin or is it better to pm someone. I never click on the links they always seem to post nor reply. (One reply once). Currently I don't say anything, so is that the best action? (sorry this should have been in site questions)

Whining on and on about it only shows the spammers that they are doing their job right and encourages them to continue.  :-/

Guys, calm down. There's no need to get so worked up over a bunch (or maybe just one ;D) of loser trolls/spammers.

We've survived far worse attacks than this current one guys, don't worry all the mods are well and truly on the case with this, just don't respond to any of their idiotic threads and let us deal with it ;)

The moderators and adminitrators have their own forum that other non-admin and moderators can't see? :-?

I wish there was a way to get rid of Spammers, Trolls, Hackers for good :-/.
But for such a big site SimV is doing pretty well keeping them away :o.
Keep up the good work Mods, And Administrators ;) [smiley=tekst-toppie.gif]
Most people think that flying a plane is dangerous, except pilots because they know how easy it is.
Arguing with a pilot is like wrestling with a pig in the mud, after a while you begin to think the pig likes it.
