Group-Office Spamming Policy

Postby dkittell » Tue Nov 29, 2005 3:25 pm

Spamming of the Group-Office forum is not allowed.
I ask that if anyone spots a spam message to contact me or another developer to have it removed.

If you want to report a spammer please PM me or another developer with the link of the page.

I personally will start to log IP addresses of spammers while I delete the message and I ask all moderators to do the same.
Having the IP address and username of the spammer will allow us to further prevent/stop spamming so that this community can get the information that it needs and not have time wasted.

Shifting gears a bit as this is getting obsessively long.
I'll now maintain a spreadsheet with the information that I've been gathering.

ISP Reporting

Postby dkittell » Tue Jun 13, 2006 10:25 am

I talked with a few ISPs and they have agreed to investigate any spam that is posted on this forum from their network.

Mainly they don't want to be listed here as a network that allows it to happen, so that is great. Yay to those ISPs.

I also deleted all users that were inactive and had 0 posts for too long. Brought it down from 9000 to about 2000 users.

Nice to know how much real users we have :)
Best regards,

I added visual confirmation at registration and also on new posters. If you are new you have to confirm your post by typing in the code on an image.

Let's hope this finally beats the spammers!
