Thank you captain obvious
Just updating their post headings with ( p..o..r...n) doesn't stop it.
This was not done by admin, in fact, it was part of the spam message.
The posts need to be deleted (you guys have the power) but you also need to set up some parameters to
a) screen who joins
b) screen/stop posts either unsavory URLs or text content etc.
a) have seen this done on other forums, and its a royal PITA. Not only does it involve count less hours of extra work for the already underpaid admin, but it means legitimate new users may have to wait for possibly days before they are 'accepted'.
b) the weblinks they post are ever changing,not just from similar domains however word sensors are already in place which should stuff around with most of their links, but If someone's dumb enough to click on one anyway and they get a virus, tuff.
a) is simple - nobody can join with a web mail addy ie hotmail etc.
b) is about admin / access etc.
a) These where the email addresses used in the most recent attacks: email@example.comAnsterten31@somefreemailserv.comErposterjo00@goglemailoffice.comDevismaster@littlehostingcompany.com
As you can see, its not popular web mail services that they use any more, its a constantly changing domain so there's no point continually updating ban lists as next week it will just be a different one.
This is not a one off occurance, its and on-going problem which is delt with as quickly and as painlessly as possible. Tonight was the worst I've ever seen it on this forum usually the messages and users responsible are deleted before anyone else sees it, and often, new users are booted long before they post because of the obviously dodgy information in their profile.
This has been a public service announcement, this is not a test, thank you for your co-operation, we now return you to your usual broadcast
