Post edited by moderator: I removed the content of the spam emails as it contained links to the spammer sites.

All of them have been removed, just wanted to let you know.

I removed all these messages. Seems like the spammer had been able to got around our spam prevention techniques, so we will have to make them even better and the game will start in the next round :(

Thanks, I removed the posts already. Please do not post the fulltext of a spam message to the forum again. The spam messages cntain URL's and if you post the text again, it has the same effect then the original spam messge :)

Woops! Very sorry. :o

till 19th May 2008 17:39

No problem at all :)

why dont we have an intro forum for new members where they had to do an intro post and wait 24 hrs
while they are checked to see if they are spam bots or not ..
if not than they can have full access
if they are
its only an small area of the forum they can spam ....

well, I think users sign up here if they have a problem... so instead of being required to write an introductory post how about just introduce a 1h limit between postings for new users?
