bit much when you get it in PMs , from a 0 post user


"Dear there,

I am much admired by your post experience here. I am writing to ask if you can do us a favor by giving a chance to partner with you. In return, we can send you one of our top-quality Bluetooth speaker or wireless keyboard as the payback. I believe you will like them.

I look forward to hearing back from you. :)

Kind regards

    I wonder what the 'partnership' entails!

    It frightens me that some people still believe the internet is a fluffy innocent place and would actually respond to a message like that.

    I have given up reporting the spam, Whats the point in following a spammer around when they post 20+ new threads, All marked as spam by several members and yet they are allowed to keep posting yet more spam.

    New members should be allowed 1 post, Or if a new members post is marked as spam then ALL their threads are instantly hidden and not allowed to post further until reviewed.

    Spammers keep coming back here because out of all the forums i use this is the slowest one for removing spam.

    Even when they eventually block the spammer the spam posts are still in the main listings page for many hours sometimes.

    Some more astrologer crap spam in Discount Codes & Vouchers, I've just marked it as spam.

    User: astroguru84 or something like that.

    Perhaps we should all ring the given phone number (using a cheap override provider of course) and tell this person what we think of them? :)

    What a shame it's so difficult to get these idiots' details onto marketing lists these days...

    Could MSE not employ this service to forecast the newbies that are spammers ???

    I have done my bit over the years where reporting Spam is concerned, and am getting tired of it. One post here and there is ok, but when they come back again and again manual reporting is not good enough.

    C'mon MSE Towers, these people are choosing to spam when you guys aren't around to back up the rest of us who are marking this crap as spam, you need to take stronger action against them!
