Okay, I'm just going to say this one more ####-ing time.

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM!!!

I'm not going to say who did it this time around, I'm not even going to PM you on the matter. I'll just say this: you must be a mouth breathing knuckle dragging idiot to have missed the message strings stickied at the top of every sub-forum here regarding the importance of this issue.

So here's the deal: for the past week we are getting several dozen spammers a day now posting 4-5 pages total of drivel that we the moderators must be vigilant in removing.

I for one am getting pretty tired of doing this on a regular basis. Especially since it was so easily avoided. I won't repeat how easy it was to avoid because it's already stickied at the top of every sub-forum. Right below this stickied post. But it was so easily avoided. So I have three propositions:

1> Go back to the old method of filtering spam.

Because unlike CAPTCHA (which sucks donkey balls), the old method actually worked. Under the old method, one had to post (X) amount of messages before being granted the privilege of adding pics or links in said posts. Which translates into the spammer's standard one-and-done posting frequency to be stopped before it starts.

2> Promoting the person with the lacking English comprehension skills (A.K.A. the aforementioned person(s) responding to spam) to moderator.

And if you can't control the spam situation you started, YOU get banned. The rest of us can catch a short break while you pick up the work load you earned.

3> I resign as moderator.

I don't want this, I prefer option #1. Failing that, option #2. But I am sick of this. It's really a simple request but for the life of me I don't know how it gets lost on some people.

...and here's another shining textbook example of what NOT to do (with the initial spam post having been deleted and thread locked due to the obvious):

Allow me to refer you to the sticky'd post in every forum here (along with the topic of this thread for the special folks that choose to ignore them):

viewtopic.php?f=12&t=28705




Don't feel like clicking? Let me summarize it then. Please, if this isn't self explanatory, chime in so we can explain it to you in simpler terms:

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM.

Let me repeat that because it needs to be understood:

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM.

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM.

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM.

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM.

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM.

Furthermore,

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM.

Before I close,

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM.

And, finally...

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM.




P.S.

DO NOT REPLY TO SPAM.






And just in case English isn't your strong suit:


عدم الرد على الرسائل الاقتحامية.

不要回复垃圾邮件。

Beantwoord geen SPAM.

Huwag tumugon sa SPAM.

Ne répondez pas aux pourriels.

KEINE ANTWORT AUF SPAM.
