A new SPAMMER AT NESDEV!?!?! (Please close this.)

Post by Hamtaro126 » Wed Aug 06, 2008 12:19 pm

Yes, Today, We have an issue, And We today must try to kick out one of the very new spammers in our community.

His name is mnop357

No, I am not joking. He must be banned for spamming about World of Warcraft (And whatever he means by ''Gold'')

We would like to say to him, Get the @*!# Out of here, Spammer.

Now, I am not spamming. Can you please kick him out. Please?

EDIT: I understand now, Spambots are doing it again. Can anyone please delete all of this thread?

Yes. He did it on certain threads (and a couple of mine) And some are bumped threads

But he does not look like an actual spambot, Unless he, she, or it has a closely matching username to the spam topics (For example, World of Warcraft has a abbreviation known as WoW or W.o.W.) like most spambots

Spambots hit forums all the time. I'm guessing the only reason the bot just now picked us up is because the robots.txt allows google to spider the forums. Just wait it out & the mods will do their thing.

Code: Select all

          *=$0000
loop      JMP loop

mnop357 has 0 posts and a warning now. Next spam post from mnop357 will result in an indefinite block.

EDIT: fdfdfsaas just spam-bombed nesdev overnight. I've cleaned up that one.

We need a board that whenever you post there, you automatically get banned and all your posts get deleted. But only if you've been a member for less than a week. Maybe use CSS to hide the trap board from humans.

I think it's funny that WOW is so widely played that there are actually spammers on this board who are selling <b>BAN ME!!!11</b>. For those of you who don't know, in WOW (World of Warcraft) you make money that's counted like this:

100 copper = 1 silver
100 silver = 1 gold

And everything from thereon is counted in gold. Gold is your friend in WOW, and it would probably take you days to get the amount of gold spammers are trying to sell for $20. Just in case anyone wanted to know.

Just noticed the newest member, gerrtiio, has the only thing in his bio a WoW <b>HEY MODS</b> site (another popular spammer advert).

He hasn't posted anything yet, but watch out...
