That doesn't mean you can trash someone's site.  If someone wants to spam / DOS attack, do it on their own system - not someone else's.

Really? I stop in for the first time in a week, make two posts and get a pop up window warning me I'll be banned because I'm posting too fast?


Yeah.. I'm convinced fully now... they're just trying to run people off.


It's BS.

I think that happened to Reedworftripparis a couple of times.  If I remember right one time they got that popup Reedworftripparis had posted one thing then 30 mins later posted another thing when they got the 'posting too fast' pop-up


Yet another bug/glitch to be noted, logged and tracked

This is exactly why this should be relaxed on veteran members.  Of course, veteran members' accounts can still be hacked and used for the spamming, but that's less likely than using a new account to spam.

Thats what happened to me too

I thought the system was kidding as I wasn't posting as near as fast as the spammer. Or so I thought


 


The first time was 30 minutes between posts, the second was 10 minutes. I posted after a minute apart and nothing. It was so odd. I didn't get anything for the time I got revoked.

What a mess - and it really makes a mockery of the whole captcha thing

Btw admiral bradon, I really think you should change your avatar... ;-)

Ironically, I can see that one of my captcha codewords forthis post is 'critical'!

Yes it did happen to me, last week. I was able to log on yesterday however. I think they are suspending use privilages lomg enough to check profiles to see if they are genuine or spammers. If they checked mine they would have seen evidence of an active user who posts and contributes regular.


But there was no explaination give, just blocked one week and back the next.


As for the spammer, who has struck again tonight, there a subtle differances in the user name every post. I don't know too much about computers. I turn it on, it works, I'm happy. Perhaps he's got some program that is doing this for him? opening multiple accounts and then using them to spam the site? And how does it get around the Captcha?

*facepalm* I wish the captcha would... "go away". Obviously it's not helping stop the spammers... *sigh*

It banned my account and now I have to start all over again, I dont care about the thread count but I didnt like it that they never contacted me back as to why? And they never warned me that I did anything wrong? They just locked me out without warning and that my friend is not appricated.

The captcha? I'll I've seen is continuous spam attacks... Somehow they are getting around it... I must find out how. *puts detective hat on* But really, all I've seen are "angry" members and spam since the captcha was introduced. If it did keep spam out, I woulden't mind it as much. It would also be nice if you made that little eensy-weensy captcha box a bit bigger, you know, for us blind-as-a-bat members out there...


Thanks for listning to my epic rant... Um... GO DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
