Spammers

Postby Gromit » Mon Jun 24, 2013 7:17 am

Whilst it's very tempting to reply to threads started by spammers, please resist the temptation to do so. By replying, in a similar way to clicking on links in spam emails, it shows our site as 'live' and we then tend to get a flood of further spamming, irrelevant drivel* on here. Whatever you do, please don't click on a link in their thread(s).

I'll do what I can to delete the accounts of folk selling k1tchen stuff etc as soon as possible, failing that if anyone does see something please drop me a pm and I'll get onto it.

Thanks playmates. :)

*Yes, even more than is spouted on the site by us lot. :D

One other forum I frequent gives a 24hr ban to anyone who replies to spammers.

Sorry to anyone really looking for a kitchen, but I have deleted the posts from our spamming buddies.

You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

This may be a red herring and totally unrelated, but I noticed that our newest registered user, "optimis" lists his/her website as "http://www.kitchendesigner1.co.uk".
Coincidence?

We seem to be infested with spammers recently. I suppose it is hard to stop these people displaying their crap. :evil:

Yup, They are a pain in the arse. I'm deleting them as fast as I find them.

I've sent Steve Parry over 24 links to spammers since 24 April this year, so just a reminder to all Trixters DONT open any links or post a reply, then hopefully they'll get bored and infest elsewhere.
