Whoops! Spammer
on 5/27/2010 8:59:22 AM
Just an apology since it looks like we had a spammer sign up last night. The PMs have been cleaned up and the account disabled. They manually signed up it seems, then spammed the PM system.

Fun!

The bad part about that is, now that one spammer knows we exist, he'll tell his friends. Perhaps mentioning something in the Terms of Service (TOS as I used to call it back in my early AOL days) about anyone attempting to spam the users will have four colored ghosts chasing them around relentlessly.

True, and I've also done some tweaks to the system. And will continue to improve it.

Ah, okay, good to know. I got an email saying I had a PM and came on here to find nothing D: Glad it's just a spambot and no glitch kept someone important from getting a message through or anything.

Ha, in that case, you must've been drunk out of your mind Ben! Hehe, just kidding. I'm glad some of us are addressing this. I did get the very same private message from a "sunita" person. Which prompted me to wonder, "since when did Aurcade become a dating site?" So, I'm glad measures are being taken to block these fools and their cronies out. Thanks David and company! The last time this happened, and fortunately the admins were on to stop it, was when some jerk named Rocky Rose registered to get some negative attention by targeting the forums (he was the one who claimed to own Twin Galaxies). That lasted from 9/5/12 to 9/7/12.

Hope you're all having a great New Year—Year of the Snake!
