Spamming on the forum
#1
I just wanted to thank everyone who has been helping us by reporting SPAM when they see it. The problem has grown increasingly difficult, and we are working to keep these idiotic and useless posts off the board.

Much of the fight goes on behind the scenes, but I wanted to share this with you. When we identify networks being used to produce spam on the board, we have the ability to block their IP addresses (the underlying numeric number that is assigned to their network). Much of the spam we see comes from overseas, and when we get those we generally ban the entire IP range, if it is assigned completely to foreign countries. We can do this because it does not really matter if those outside the USA can access this board. To give you an idea of the magnitude of what we are dealing with, I have listed many of the IP addresses we have banned, as well as the last time someone tried to access the site through them. Every "Today" you see means at least one person has tried to gain access today, most likely for spamming purposes. This does not reflect the multiple attempts we see. One of them (222.*.*.*) was just put in the system today, at 11:01 AM. You can see it blocked an attempt just 2 minutes later.

Thought this might help you understand the importance of targeting these guys early. We appreciate your continued help!
