Massive Influx of Spam

Discussion in 'Site Issues' started by Bad CO, Sep 30, 2012.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Apologies for the massive influx of spam we've seen of late although I think I've managed to clear most of it up now. I've just realised that RR doesn't have a key piece of anti-spam software installed (the excellently named Spam-o-matic) which is very good at both preventing it and making clearing things up much quicker. This is a pretty major oversight by us and I GCO should be on the case tomorrow.

    In the meantime a few top tips for spam:


    • Don't click on the links ..... after all this is exactly what they want.
    • Don't reply to the thread as this bumps it up the Last 50 etc which means it is more likely someone else will click on a link
    • Please notify us in the "Spammers in Here" so that one of the mod or admin team can deal with it.

    Another top tip for spam.

    mix it with a bit of chicken, fry it with curry powder and onions, add a dash of vodka, a glug of beer some chickpeas and chopped tinned tomatoes (Indian flavour) and it makes a pretty decent curry.

    Spam. Dinner for poor people.

    Similarly, salad cream - for those who cannot afford mayonaise... :twisted:
     
  4. The thing that really pisses me off with Spam is getting the stuff out of the bloody tin!!!!:frustrated:
     
  5. The thing I hate about Spam is those sodding vikings turning up every time you ask for it in a shop!
     
  6. Present. ...........................

    I'd love to respond, Wrecks, but I'm waiting for Tamnottle to dive in there first (so to speak...).
     
  16. Just an update, Spam-o-matic is now installed so expect significant reductions from now on.

    .....And if you're ever in a pub quiz and get asked about SPAM it means "Specially Prepared American Meat".... Ask your Granny, she loved it. ;)
