Spam here on adblockplus.org/forum

Post by maxxyme »

Hello,

I recently received spam messages (PM's) from users.

I already reported them, contacting (or trying to) either Till or Wladimir Palant, but it seems the messages were never sent, because they are stuck in my "Outbox" ucp.php?i=pm&folder=outbox

Here they are:
XRumerTest : memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=51664
Brianrandy : memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=86993
FainaEson : memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=87128

Ok. Reporting two spammers here. avtoZcar and kentarozza. I've marked them as "foes". Not sure if that is the same thing as banning.

However, the devs want to migrate this forum to other format, more protected, but I don't know when ..

I had actually sent a PM to rach about DavidApext, in lieu of my usual tactic, because unlike posts, PMs don't have a Report feature.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.

I've only recently started receiving spam private messages of late, no other reason to be on here. I determined an ISP was spying on my data for cronyist reasons and was forced to connect via a VPN which is blocked on the forums here so in order to report abuse I have to disconnect from my VPN to post about abuse and then reconnect to my VPN to prevent further abuse. :|

I think it'd be great to require accounts to have a minimum of X number of forum posts to be able to send private messages. Also perhaps update the anti-spam measures.
