Spam Posts

Postby HappyGoLucky » Mon Nov 07, 2011 5:33 am

Been seeing a number of posts advertising handbags or lotteries around lately. Has it been happening for a long time? :o Not that I'm complaining - I'm just curious, that's all. The mods do a fantastic job getting rid of them really quickly. =D>

I haven't been on here for a pretty long time and it's great to still see some familiar faces. Oh, and some new ones too. :P

There have always been spam posts, but recently it has got worse, which is why some of them have lasted long enough on PP for you to actually see them. Peecee commented the other day in the moderation records section that, just between me and her, we had deleted 23 spammers in one day :o I'm logging on every couple of hours (if I can) to keep on top of them.

You could post in the Chit Chat section, Happy, and let us know what you're up to these days :D

...and in the hour since Snail posted this, I've deleted 11 more... :o

Just shows how popular PP is, I suppose. :P

Welcome back, Happy - as Snail said, let's have your gossip. :bounce:

Good lord, Pee, I've barely had 3 today. Stop hogging all the spammers [-X

You snooze, you lose, Snail! :lol:

But really - between us we've dumped 25 spammers today, and the day's nowhere near over. :o It's almost a full-time job at the moment, and Jo won't even let us have machine guns or baseball bats... :wink:
