Antivirus Donations To Bill

Recommended Posts

Bill,

Tell me where to send a donation for getting some strong antivirus protection on the site.

As much enjoyment as I get from the site you made, I'd love to help you get full control of it back.

Thanks Paul,

Most of what is still showing up is from spammers that joined in the last 2 weeks and I am weeding them out as we move along. The forum is now much more secure and things will be back to normal soon. Thanks for the thought, but we'll get it handled. The two med ones that I just nuked joined on 12th January when the attacks were going the strongest....

It is a pain in the butt I know and now all new members are screened manually.

Man where are these idiots coming from? :grr01: :*&$*(: :*&$*(: And why are they showing up now all of a sudden? There's got to be something to keep them off the forum.

Well I have found where they are still coming from and have been busy flagging spam accounts and deleting them for almost 40 minutes with many more to go. I have found over 50 that joined on 1-15-11 during our "attack" and there are a bunch more for me to delete. These member accounts are just sitting waiting....

What a hassle, but shouldn't be able to happen again, I hope....

Well back to deleting accounts.... :tisk-tisk:

I am at 156 spam accounts deleted and many pages to go... There are hundreds of these accounts added between 1-12-11 and 1-15-11.

What a hassle....

Here, here! I couldn't agree with Terry more.

"For he's a jolly good fellow..." That's you Bill!

Great site, and we appreciate your long hours of fine tuning.

Hi Bill. Seeing as how AZO has the same spam problem, my guess is the main server has been hacked. Until that gets fixed there is nothing you can do.

Hi Bill. Seeing as how AZO has the same spam problem, my guess is the main server has been hacked. Until that gets fixed there is nothing you can do.

It is fixed at the server, the issue now is and was all the spam members that joined over the last couple weeks due to my security settings. I have deleted 480 spam accounts. They were all registered by a few "live" people and available to spammers for use, but not now....

I have been working with IP Boards to resolve this issue and have over 8 hours into cleaning up this huge mess.... Had to manually remove each fraudulent account myself and add them to the spammer database.

Still have more to do, but things should smooth out now.

Hey Bill ... I guess I have been missing all the excitement on both yours and AZO's forums. I had to get a computer as the old one crashed and burned big time ... not even related to spammer action but sheer age and hard use. Now I can start my retirement with a fresh new computer. I even had to ask for my password to be reset on this forum because I had automatically logged in so many times over the tears that I forgot what I set it at and couldn't find it written down. Glad to see the worst is over ... until the SOB's find another way in.

Thanks for all you do for us on the forum and elsewhere.

Hi Bill,

As a recent "joinee" I want to say thanks to you for what you do for this forum. I can only imagine how much time you spent getting rid of the problems and still keeping track of what is going on.

I have been away from detectors for a while but am about to get "hooked again.

Thanks again,

Roger
