Hi Rick. I delete tons of them. Maybe fifty or more today alone from over the weekend. Mostly Russian spammers trying to schlepp fake Viagra or porn, with the occasional Westerners wanting to write essays for slackers who have no business being in university! LOL

Do you think you could get an essay written on Russian spamming?

Hello Rick, good to see you. Hope you're keeping well. Yeah, unfortunately the spammers have won. It seems we have no security as far as registration goes. Every day is a constant struggle trying to keep them at bay.

I pretty much ignore the Status Updates now. I'll delete a few, but there's just far too many to keep up with, sometimes hundreds of them. I just go to the Recent Topics and ban the spammers on them, and then take a quick look at the forums to try to catch any I might have missed. We might consider changing the name of the site to Spam Zone! :laugh2:

Yeah I gave up on the status update area ages ago, I just couldn't keep up with it once it got out of hand. It would be nice if Rob could delete it, and also make it impossible for anyone with less than say 10 posts to make a thread/post with a link in it.

In the "Status Updates" area, if you move your cursor to the right of the user-name a "Delete" and a "Lock" pops up. I just did some "Deletes" on them. It was much faster than going to the user-name and labeling them as spammers then coming back to the opening-page. I'm not exactly sure what "Delete" does. If it actually deletes their account of if it just deletes their name from showing on the Status Update list. I guess whatever it does it isn't any worse than just leaving them there!

I think it just deletes the comment, which isn't ideal. However, given the amount it's likely a better option.
