Just for the record, I did volunteer to be a moderator. I won't be going to anymore jobsites, that was a once-in-a-lifetime situation. I'll be around for a good, long time! :D

I think you'd make an excellent choice.:) If there's an opening, I would also like to volunteer. I'm here every day, and I'd be glad to help out.

Thanks! Yep, I'm here every day, too. Not so much on weekends, but if I was a moderator, I would make a point of checking in.

I guess so. I don't think I've ever seen kpropain or Austin.

I see Horror hasn't done anything yet, but you guys are doing a really great job knocking down the spammers as fast as they pop up.

subject Getting slammed by another wave of spammers

hide details Dec 1 (2 days ago)

Hello,

We are getting hit by a fresh wave of spammers/spam bots since the past 10 hours (maybe even longer).

We need you to check the horror.com Spam Filter, if it is working or not.

Also, has a bot snuck in and is somehow bypassing the Spam Filter for it's related other spam bots? We had one called XRumerTest which did that sometime back. Once we banned that name, the spamming stopped.

Thanks,

___V___

Hey horror,

The spammers are increasing in horror.com. Somehow they are managing to bypass the Spam Filter which you had set up.

They have found a way to break in and their numbers are increasing per day. It is getting difficult to manage the forums.

Please see if you can do something about this problem.

If anything, please set the Registration of new members to "Subject to Moderator Approval". That way, we can control the spam bots and weed them out.


Waiting to hear from you ASAP,

_____V_____

Hey horror,

Sent you a couple of emails before this but don't know if you saw it or not.

The Spam Filter is not working, or the spam bots have found a way to bypass
it. Spammers are increasing by the day and it is getting increasingly difficult
to keep them in check. Considering the fact that only me and Neverending (and now Zwoti) are the only moderators around, it is becoming a huge task.

We need you to check the Spam Filter, or install a stronger/different Spam Filter, since this one is not working anymore. If that can't be done, please set the Registration of new members to "Subject to Moderator Approval" so that we can keep the spammers out and bring genuine horror loving members into the forum.

Thanks in advance.

_____V_____

So far, no reply. No luck.
