Spammer!

Mods.................or anyone else knowledgeable,
Is there anything either I as an individual (in my settings) or the site as a whole do to stop these F***ING lowlife spammers?
I log on for interesting RC related items NOT every second thread being some dross from an annoying A**HOLE.
Had my rant

Various methods are being tried to limit the influx, but they're pretty crafty and find work-arounds.
Whenever you see a potential or actual spammer, report them using the "report post" link to the left.

We're doing everything we can....vast majority of forums deal with the same thing. We have more of a world-wide member base than others, so we get more attention as a result, the source of most of it comes from India.

I must say that spammers' pathetic threads are not showing up that much lately.

Should I say "good job mods" or not?

We'll take what we can get....! It varies....wish we could take all the credit, but like I said earlier, we're doing all we can.

Well it's a group effort around here. When you all report the threads that get by the security measures set up here, a note is sent out right away which notifies us and we can immediately deal with it so that most will never see them at all...so thank you as well!!

Compared to some of the forums I'm on, its really not that bad. The occasional thread to dl some movies is all I ever com across.

I'd say good job.

As long as were on the topic, I was wondering what I can do to stop the insane amount of emails from rc51forums.com. Don't know if this has been asked before, but I remember somebody saying something about it awhile ago. Whats the best way to handle this?

In the UserCP, on the left about at the middle click "Edit Options" and scrolling down the page you'll see an option "Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages" and un-click it.
