Spam in the forums.
« on: November 09, 2019, 12:07:55 am »
Theres a lot of spam from MerbaLab in the forums. Clear to see.
Also some from tomriddlepotter. That's verified for good by answering questions, and then links have been added to the opening posts.

I thought Arturia/ moderators looked in the forums and spotted things like this and got it fixed.

615 spam posts by MerbaLab so far, and counting. It would appear the mods don't check the forum at weekends whereas spammers don't have non-working days.
I did offer my services to moderate the forum when it was spammed hard last year but my request was ignored.
I find it ironic how much spam we get considering the high number of genuine new users who moan that it's nearly impossible to get through the registration process because they don't understand the security questions. Clearly the spammers understand the questions very well.

Hi I do look and report spam at the weekends but i only have limited access to remove posts from my threads only.
I will ask if its possible to get more access to remove the spam as its getting worse atm.

regards

Thanks for that info terrym.
The main thing is to get rid of the spam and hopefully the spammers. It pop up from time to time.

Regards.
