PM spam by memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=91938

One thing of interest is they joined Mon Mar 27, 2017 3:45 pm and spammed me at Mar 27, 2017 8:54 pm. Perhaps there should be a limit on how frequently new users can PM?

Also, a month or so ago on Feb 25, 2017 3:59 am was another PM spam - that one was from memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=89466 At the time I had not spotted this forum thread and so instead reported it to <snip> though believe no action was taken.

Do you need the contents of the spams posted here? I see some people are doing that though it seems like free advertising.

I did not think we should be commenting on the behavior of other users on a public forum but instead should PM a forum moderator who would review and deal with the issue which is why I snipped out who I PMed to report the spam on Feb 25, 2017. I assume the same rule would apply to reporting spammers.

I banned the 2 users you reported.

As for other measures unfortunately the eyeo / ABP official staff is doing nothing: no updates on the last phpbb forum, mods to control the newcomers and so on.

It's not just PMs. They're filling the forums, too.

banned, but every day hundreds of such accounts are created.
I have no access to the admin dashboard or to install some mod against spamming. The admins have no reaction.

Do these extensions work in a specific spam environment? It seems to me that yes. But I would like to clarify

This is a terrible phenomenon. I support their blocking.
