We have had a LOT of spammers lately... but what I logged in to find waiting this morning pushed the line!!

I wanted to ask that if an of you find links to child pornography posted on our forum, please please PLEASE report these links (and ANY information under the posters name) to these sites

I apologize to all of our members that we are unable to prevent these types of postings. I try best I can to log in often and clean things up... but they have been terrible lately

Thank you all for your time and help!!

If you need another moderator, I have years of experience with highly active forums and large member counts. I have been a member here for over a year and log-in nearly every day.

Just putting it out there. As this kind of thing is unacceptable.

You got there IP address right? Did it seem like they were using TOR?

If you have admin rights, you could try contacting the forum host stating the issue with spam/pornography/etc. and the fact the people with the power are MIA, make sure to remind them again on pornography and the amount of children on this forum. I had to do the same thing a few years back on another forum. The site owner had been MIA for a couple of YEARS and it was being overrun with spam and other nasties. I now have admin rights and take care of things accordingly, along with the 3-4 other moderators, as well as found a new person to take over payments to the host as it was about to expire. The forum host complied, albeit after a bit of foot work, trouble and quite a few phone calls.

Here is the wiki on TOR

Heather, I used to send you emails when I found those spams, with the name and the post. That was on a different computer, and I no longer have the info to do that any more. Do you still want us to help you by emailing info?
