Something has to be done, Mr.S., with the spam here?

I have been ignoring the spam here however when I come to this site and see "Little preteens girls in underwear" posted as spam, then I know there should be another way to counter it than just ignoring it. So I ask, can the process of how new topics are posted here be changed? Maybe a delay file for new threads can be created where they are placed in a temporary file for "mod review", or something, before being posted?

Just fyi, he'll probably move this to website feedback, b/c that's where it goes. In the future, you might just want to put it there.

And something is done. Numerous times a day.

There is a way besides ignoring it... and that's why we don't ignore it, we delete it.

I would of posted this in that forum, but I wanted to know other's thoughts on this issue too. This one gets the most traffic, and is why I posted it here. Anyhow, that one was a bit over the top, and really concerned me.

Glad you guys are on top of it. :D

Just delete this thread Tiff. I had posted this in the other forum (general topics) for reasons of traffic. Now there is no reason to have this thread even up.

Are you mad because, Scott-T, has been getting his thumpings, OR something else???????????? :? :P

Well, do you want it deleted or do you want me to answer your question?

Ijusthaveaquestion? wrote:Are you mad because, Scott-T, has been getting his thumpings, OR something else???????????? :? :P


And why do you think I'm mad? What would I be mad about?

And fyi, I don't care who gets their "thumpings," but I do care when the level of discourse on the board begins to deteriorate. Nobody has to care with me, b/c I'm comfortably powerless, but like every other member of the board, I can make suggestions.

And if I might speak for the majority, comments like "go to the dance" and "get a girlfriend" and referencing other posters' "sorry lives" aren't really what we like to see here.

So I voiced some opposition to it. Take it or leave it, but I was not mad.

If I got mad that easily, I'd be foaming at the mouth every time I read anything here, and I'd never have made it this long. :)

I never said anyone had a sorry life????? Are you suggesting I did say such a thing? The other examples you gave are positive, but firm, suggestions to lead a full and healthy normal young life. Do you think the person who I posted those other suggestions to, which I did say, exhibits a normal healthy life based on what this person in question posts on this site?

Just let that above post go if you like, but on another subject entirely, I need to know what I may be doing wrong in regard to posting/loading pics in the signature bar. I cut and paste, but it just loads as an small empty box. :? Can you link me to, or tell me a step by step instruction on how to load pics in the signature? I know I am missing doing something which I need to do in order to make it work for me.

"Something has to be done, Mr.S., with the spam here?"

I agree, it looks to me to be at a ridiculous level. Deleting it after the fact may be a losing battle. phpBB should have some system mods that will curtail or stop most of the spam messages. If we have to enter in a "character recognition" code to post, then so be it. I don't want to come on the forum and have to read past subject line trash of this nature.

Actually, there are a few things that have gotten much better. For instance, some of the spam used to post numerous times, in every forum, and that has stopped, which is good b/c finding all those and making sure they were gone could be time-consuming.

thinkaboutit wrote:Deleting it after the fact may be a losing battle.


I don't think it is. Most of it's only up for a matter of hours, and during the day it's often less than that. The worst time is usually on weekend mornings.

I wouldn't know anything about that, but I trust MrSinatra's judgment, and I'm sure he's using whatever is best.

Well, no, not really "so be it," because that's not it.

That one way is better than the other is just your opinion, and you're certainly entitled to it, but having to do character recognition on every post would annoy many people much more than ignoring spam threads for the few hours they're there.

And I would be of that crowd.

Well, I apologize if it offends you that much, but it is gone quickly. And I hate that you feel so strongly about it, b/c that's just how it is.

Other than that, I don't know what to tell you.

You know it's kiddy porn spam we are talking about here, Tiff? A letter/number code would be fine with me considering what the spam is.
I hope even more people chime in on this?

Yeah, I know what we're talking about, and it's offensive, but I have to click on the thread to delete it, and it's not like there were actual pics or anything.

And again, it's not there very long. Also, child porn obviously exists on the Internet. You always know it's there and that it's disgusting, so how is this different?

And it should be noted that this is definitely what we get the least of. I've only ever seen that a couple times, and I've been doing this for months. Most of it is just your regular, every day porn, and prescription drugs.

And maybe it would be fine with you, to have to do a number/letter thing on every post, but personally I wouldn't think it was worth it.

And I hope people do chime in, and I hope they all say they don't want a code, b/c I will truly hate that.

Also, if all the regulars say they would/wouldn't prefer a code, that doesn't mean it'll go that way. Sinatra takes suggestions, but remember that he has the final say.

Fair enough. I would have to look for it if it in fact exists but a way around this would be to have a phpBB Mod that will delay, until flagged by a moderator the first or a few posts by a new user. This would certainly take no longer but possibly less time to administrate than the current process.

Just a suggestion.

Edit: Looks like somebody already had this idea.

Edit Edit:
Looks like this is closer to what I was thinking.

I haven't looked at it in comparison with the first Mod to see if this one retained the good features of the first one.

No "thumpings" here, my boy.

Last time I saw, YOU were the one getting slammed for fabricating ulterior motives of people who wouldn't kiss your backside upon demand.

Nice try, though. :lol:

You friggin liar, and that post is another one of your continuous habit of lying. If you are unaware of what lying is, here read this> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lie You need to also read this> http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/266632 So quit acting like a NUT! And I don't care if, Tiffany, comes to your rescue again AND I didn't get slammed, you were being protected by a mod here, that would be, Tiffany. She has her reasons for doing so. I duno why she is protecting, you, and I don't care, I have been told not to question her motives; so be it. But you are nothing, but a troll and a web stalker. You have shown yourself to be blatantly both. Everyone who is not a mod here can see you for what you have shown yourself to be based on your behavior.

I gave, Mr.S., my word I would leave you and, Tiffany, alone, but he was telling me to not question Tiffany's motives, not challenging you on your behavior here.

Now, Tiffany, I am sure will come to your defense again, and I will be forced not to reply her, and so you wont leave it alone, so it goes on and on because of dysfunctional young neo-con trolling that this site seems to be okay with.

This site use to be a really classy place; its really degenerated as of late. So sad. I hope this site can regain its class again. But how, when trolls are tolerated here?

"Trolling": Another buzz word Ijusthaveaquestion over-uses to negatively categorize those who don't follow his ideology.

Rock on, pal. :roll:
