Default New broom, new rules...

Specifically for spammers.

I've come up with a cunning plan that we have tested this week and it appears to work.

Report the spammers as usual using the warning triangle.

John, Pat and cxdemon (if he's around) will ban them.

I will spend my time changing their profile so that even if they're banned, they can't even be seen. Their signatures with all the crap in it will be gone and they will be dead to us.

By Sunday night, every spammer we've seen in the last 3 months might as well never have existed.

How does that sound?

Because if you delete them, then they can come back, with the same name and all the rest of the shit.

You can't ban them by email address, because they're all throwaway email addresses and you can't ban them by IP address because they're all spoofed.

One of us works in IT for a living and is prepared to spend a few extra hours to help this forum.

You're the one that keeps moaning about them shaggy. I'm not doing this for MY benefit.

But I used to love spam!

Spam with toast
Spam with beans
Spam with egg n beans
Spam sanwiches with pickle
In fact it was Spam with everything in the 70s

but too bloody expensive these days!

I just didn't understand why you weren't deleting them, hence my asking, on several occasions I have asked the same and not once been given a rational answer. As they're most likely automated bots the likelihood of resigning up with the same random name and numbers is highly unlikely. But keeping them keeps the forum numbers up as said. Maybe it's political or maybe it is as you suggest the powers above not doing things properly but as you say "Tough".

Rejoice for the spammers will be driven from the land of 100% Biker and never more will they be seen to cast false prophecies across it's reverent shores.

In light of Huws' Pm and then answer on here I had to reply, it does matter as it brought the forum down , as I have discussed at some length with you Pat. I'm quite prepared to ignore it I just couldn't understand why they weren't simply deleted. S'all.

I don't understand any of this clever stuff about being admin on a forum but because I know someone who does it elsewhere I'm aware what a lot of time it takes - I don't think most people on a forum have any idea!

So yes, it's much appreciated, thanks guys!
