Riskywrags post

Post by sejintenej »

Riskywrags has posted in what appears to be Russian linking to a Russian site. in General Chat CH stuff.

Methinks this is inappropriate and further I suspect that there is something nasty at the other end of the link

Thanks - it's quite a task keeping on top of the influx of new Russian users posting crap! I've updated the Registration questions to change them and see if that helps - but not sure if it'll stop this rubbish....

Thanks for flagging it.

I’ve deleted both those users.

Are you getting them as private messages/emails, as well as seeing stuff posted in topics?

If I see one, I use the exclamation mark button to report the post. Is this the best way to report them, Julian?

Yes, that’s the best way as J.R., RichardB or I will see those and delete them.
If we miss them though and they’re still there, then a message in this section sends me an email which I then respond to too...

No, only saw them as topics. Had an early morning!
Now I know what the exclamation mark is for!

That was one of the reasons I asked the question, David!

Julian, they are all over the place at the moment, sorry I’m not going to complain about each individually!

It would appear we have been experiencing some form of cyber attack of late.

It is being dealt with.

The flurry of posts were all one user.
With the anti-spam registration measures, these are real people registering, finding the answers to the registration questions, and then posting junk - not much we can do, except I’m blocking the ip’s and deleting the users and all their posts.

Next are will be to block access from whole IP ranges - but that has the risk of blocking real genuine users accidentally :-(
