STOP STOP Spamming us whoever you are

 

Why are you doing this?

 

TCM board admin and techies, can't you do anything about it?

 

SansFin, this is no "fairy". Fairies are supposed to be nice. Even the bad ones are at least interesting. But whoever is doing this to our boards, male or female, one person or many, former or current members or someone from somewhere else, they are not fairy-like.

More like a monster.

 

whoever, whatever you are 

 

STOP IT YOU'RE DRIVING ME BONKERS ! ! ! :blink:  

I thought from the thread title you were gonna complain about me bringing up hot spell. :lol:

I'm trying to figure out what does the South Koreans have against us? :unsure:

 

By the way, who are the others? :blink:

I am intrigued by the fact that- according to this pie chart- the US is responsible for 11% of spam worldwide.

 

I'd like to think that right now some Korean-based classic movie or music or tv discussion forum is being constantly bombarded by spam like:

WHY WILL TCM KOREA REFUSE TO PLAY HOT SPELL???!!!! WHAT DO YOU HAVE AGAINST SHIRLEY BOOTH?

And they're all shaking their heads at the nonsensical letters and symbols and wondering when they can get back to discussing the Korean music scene or Klassic Korean cinema...

Has everyone noticed that misswonderly's thread on the subject of how the spam bothers her, which was getting some pretty fair discussion, has mysteriously vanished?

 

That seems pretty weird. Was something said in there that isn't supposed to be said?

It was apparently consolidated/intermingled into this thread - it's down there.

 

Now someone find the wine thread - I miss the chuckles.

It seems that "ladylady" is working tonight's shift.  They just clocked in and have gone to work spamming as I'm typing this. 

 

EDIT: For a while, I thought that ladylady had walked off the job or something, because the posting briefly stopped.  It seems that they're back now, except they have something on their user name which makes it appear that they're offline, but they're obviously online because new posts keep popping up.  Maybe ladylady was taking a potty break or something.  Lol. We'll see how long tonight's reign of terror lasts.

It is possible to use: Incognito mode when signing-in. This prevents your name being listed as viewing threads. I have it as standard because I am not only one who uses this computer to browse forum and I do not wish people to believe I am here when I am not.

The spam this afternoon was promoting MAXx79.COM.

 

Spam promoting MAXx79.COM has also appeared recently on the message boards for astrogaming.com, empireonline.com, espguitars.com and writerscafe.org as well as the message boards for other sites.

Like the spam on the TCM message boards, the ones on these other sites were also in some Asian language.
