In Topic: Forum Malware??

I reinstalled the forum again. I'm having trouble going through the forums and searching out any posts from bots. If you guys see some, please report the posts so I can delete the posts and ban the bots.

I took a look at the forum and I couldn't see any sign of intrusion.

 

Just in case, I purchased a new server in a new datacenter with a brand new operating system, did a clean install of all the forum files, and only ported over the database entries. If any malware could have existed before, it can't now.

 

Let me know if you're still seeing problems. If you still are, I would highly recommend you check for malware on your computer.


In Topic: Spam bots?

I've just deleted all of the spam posts I can find.

We're trying the best we can at the moment. If you go to the bottom of the main forum page, you can see how many spammers our forum software has blocked already. We've blocked over 22,000 spammers since late November. Unfortunately, a few slip through the cracks. I've found that most of the spam comes from a small number of users, which makes it easier for us to figure out who the spammers are and delete their posts. We just need to delete all posts made by that user.

In the meantime, please use the report button to report the post or user profiles of the spammers you see. It helps the moderators figure out who the spammers are so we can suspend them and delete their posts.

In Topic: Touch Phones Can Kill You

If dialing 911 is super important to you, you can create a shortcut on the homescreen to directly dial 911. This would be much faster than using any dumbphone with physical buttons.

As for dialing other numbers... if you're dialing the numbers manually, you're doing it wrong. That's what the address book is for. Address book searching and management is significantly easier on a smartphone with a touchscreen than a dumbphone.

I installed some new software that will hopefully block most of the spam bots. Let's hope this fixes it. :)
