Spam policy
There's been a rash of spam on the boards lately. I apologize that everyone is subjected to it; however, until it gets too bad I'd rather have Guest posting enabled than not, since it makes it easier for people with account troubles to post.

Anyway, here are the steps that are being taken to treat it:

-- The IP of the spammer is added to the IP ban list
-- The message and any following comments directly addressing the spam message itself are deleted

Some of you may have noticed that replies to spam messages have been deleted -- this is merely because they tend to interrupt the flow of conversation before; the goal of this policy is to make it as if the spammers never existed.

P.S. Sorry for the shadow topics, I figured it was a cheap way of posting to all three forums at the same time....

I can't help but read the title of this topic as Sticky Spam Policy.

I'm just glad to be part of something that has set guidelines for glutinous meat.

"strongest prescription diet pill" should be added to the list, and changed to: "Unlicensed Particle Accelerator"

Visit me or don't.

If I had conjured this as a fiction
I would be scared I'd gone too far

I'd disable guest access. Spammers can always switch IPs. I disabled guest posting on my forum I run but still allow guest viewing.

but without guest posting, we wouldn't be hearing all these awesome wonderful cool comments on how they love the new album!
Maybe BEFORE LBL it would've worked... but I certainly wouldn't recommend it right now! Tongue

WTF? Loserwire, you just blew my mind.

CAUTION: Over the weekend, a short psychic escaped from police custody.
He is to be considered a small medium at large.
