And if they resist, send in the Six Pounder Portee!
That ought to sicken their happiness!
anyone else notice a "shift".
i am rather sensitive.
when "auto" posts- the dynamic changes.
good to see you back Otto.
DEATH to spammers !
You´re the man, Otto! I must appreciate what you do to keep this site working already for 20 years. Thank You very much. From a member since 2002.....
We've been slammed by spam again !
Temujincan appears to be another hit and run, posting only links, to who knows where ?!
The links are legitimate, would have been nice to have included descriptions though.
Cheers and strength, Otto!
He's a good member on ww2T.
I changed the way users are approved several months ago, since a daily deluge of spammers were getting past the filters in place before. The moderators were spending way too much time each day cleaning up the spammer's bullshit.
Potential users now have to request to join and then be eyeballed by admins before they are accepted as members.
I ban about 30-40% before they ever make it to the forum, with most of these coming from suspect countries. A few others are flagged as known spammer addresses by the application. I also look at other criteria.
Sorry guys, I apologize for posting links and NOT explaining. The links are for information I’ve built or found over time (years) and posted on Wartimes.ca and sometimes ww2talk.com. I try NOT try repeat the same post on various websites I work on, so I tend to post LINKS, but I should have taken the time to explain “who I was and what these were about”……….didn’t even think I would be considered a “spammer”
So, when posting links in the future, I’ll make sure I explain……before I get myself BANNED from this site
I am one of the moderators at Wartimes.ca and have been on ww2talk for some years and I used to be a moderator on Canada at War (until the site went down without knowing why) ……..I look forward to helping here (when I can)
Barry (aka Temujin)
Ah don't worry a thing about it. Happy to have ya here. I was a Moderator for a time here and I have Ban-Hammer flashbacks
Hi Barry. Very sorry for the confusion. I certainly know who you are. You contributions are always very welcome here.
