If they are automatic and not an actual person sitting there posting, then I'm wondering if that one feature you sometimes see on myspace can be installed somehow where you have to copy given numbers and letters in a box when new members register for BBU.

I've never understood that. If I wanted to look at that crap, I could look it up on the net anytime I wanted.

Yep, I saw it. Guess that will show you to be a smart-a$$ on here, Liz.

No, really...Liz had respoded after me about how insane this crap is. And I have to agree!!!!

Sorry guys... I've moved the entire thread now. I don't know why suddenly we are getting this type of spam. It's pretty sick...

Agreed. The SPAM is getting really graphic anymore. What can we do until new fixes are in place? Would it be helpful for the Mods to be able to just move the posts to the recycle bin until admins can ban it? We'd have to be able to move from any board, not just the ones we moderate, though.

Just a thought to keep that stuff away from kiddos seeing it....

I opened one and got an eyefull. I don't know why they started, but I do know that if my daughters would have been around I would have been very upset. I don't understand why ALL mods don't have the ability to move posts. We had it that way before, no one abused it (to my knowledge) and spam was moved promptly. Now we have to wait for the mod of that board to move the offending post, while members are opening the posts and seeing this disgusting filth. If a child were to see the pictures and the parent wanted to, they could make a big issue out of it.
I may not post much, but I still come here to read. I am about to stop comming to BBU completely because the SPAM is getting out of control. I can handle disgusting words, but not pictures.

Yea... I've gotten to see too many of these lately when I had to open them to move them to the recycle bin. This morning though, I see that there is an option to move them without needing to go in to the actual thread.
My guess behind it all is that we changed some setting allowing pictures to be hyperlinked in our threads during all the recent changes. It's just a guess though...

Behind the scenes the board is going through huge changes. I've mentioned it before that once these changes are in place we will be able to drastically cut down on spam. We've actually already upgraded the forum software to the latest version, but you can't see many of the benefits because this skin is so old. The new forum skin is finished and ready to be implemented.

Until then, don't open anything by anyone you don't know. Mods/Admins take care of ALOT of the spam that most of you never see.
