Winchester site has been targeted too. Hope the moderators are on the case or these enjoyable forums will be over-run with spam and porn

Yeah, I've banned about a half dozen accounts today. I noticed that Ripjack13 has also banned a bunch too.

Looks like they're from Turkey, Ukraine, Poland, and a bunch of other European places.

Don't click on any of their links if they sneak any in.

If you guys notice anything, please hit the report post and let us know.

Thanks.

I'm not getting nowhere near that many notifications.

I don't even see that many listed under new accts in the admin page.

OK, I just went through it and deleted about 40. But I made sure they were actually banned first, so all the inactive accounts are cleared up.

Looks like most of them were already banned today. They were coming in until about an hour ago all through this evening. For a while, I was getting a new notification about every 30 minutes or so. The new inactive accounts only went back through yesterday though in the administrator panel.

I got a couple from Moscow, Vietnam, Poland, Turkey, Ukraine, South America, Mexico, Amsterdam, etc.

There were a bunch of them.

Yeah, I got another 25 or so about 9AM. Only one account looked legitimate.

There's a couple more in the que right now, but I'll wait until later this evening and until the basket gets full. No need wasting time doing it on an "as they sign up" basis.

They're not going anywhere. They cant' log in until they're cleared by an admin. I have better things to do for now.

It's time for my nap. :lol:

So far, it looks like over 800 spam accounts have been denied.

I don't even think some of them are even trying very hard anymore.

Another forum I belong to has been bombarded with Chinese spam. Pages and pages of it. It's the new form of stuffing envelopes in a get-rich-quick scheme.
