Anti spam campaign

Postby rroux » Mon Jul 31, 2017 1:57 pm

Hi all,

Due to our growing amount of spam topics on our forums we decided to take action.
We removed all account that have never posted any topic here and that represents more than 10000 users accounts!
Many of them are just spammers who just subscribe to post advertisement and adult content.
If we made a mistake by deleting a real account you are welcome to re-create your account.

Have a nice day!

Good idea.. But still heaps of spammers.. I have deleted so many over these past few days.. However, far too many times my own account has been made inactive and then active. Its says my IP has been banned.. But then few minutes later I can get back on.. Not sure if that is due to Administrators doing something....

Hi Destiny, thanks for your spam hunting, it helps me a lot!
I don't think any administrator is making changes these days, I'll ask.
I just don't like this forum technology (phpBB) it acting weird all the time don't you think?
Anyway, your help is very very appreciated! Thanks a lot!
