903:loginsst@web.de
904:org@2hl.org
905:protectx@world-inform.com

btw. did you managed to get the IP address and time of post. you know, we already got one IP banned...

Oh, I forgot that we've also got their IP addresses on time of registration, so we'll compare two, and block appropriately.

Their IPs:
905: 69.86.4.110
904: 87.118.103.185
903: 200.51.208.86

I think I'll start blocked post to gather mails and IP addresses of spammers, maybe also with date of post to send abuse notifications, spam their mailboxes, direct zombies to them... so many blissful things, so little time...

Only 903 had one post. sorry, I forgot to write down timestamp, etc.
904 and 905 haven't posted yet but from their forum page it's clear to me that are spammers. Or am I too aggressive ?

Nope. Just don't went berserk on them with something that can hurt more than 10 people at once.

I think a solution for spam messages:

1 - All known spammers(members) will be deleted by moderators.
2- New membership will closed. And new announcement appear on new members page as:

"Membership closed. and will be opened only for some days for this year. Please visit for every day.

Some days of month this message appears. "next registering available on dates : .... "

In Turkiye we have a delphi forum. I'm a member only on this forum.

Membership allowed only on april....on a year. I don't hear spammer and spam post on this forum. of course many moderators working for this.

I think we should work more silently, otherwise we may become target for some serious kind of attack.

Hi again,

Johnny_Bit, look at your answer at
viewtopic.php?p=3746#3746
Seems the word filter should be modified a bit, it's too aggressive.

Right, way to aggressive. Fixing that. Besides, thanks for the troll thingie, it saves me a little time, so I can go berserk on them just once a week.

//Edit: ought to be good now.
//Edit2: Good master Kambiz won't kill me for changes I done?

it was an adv post

The spammer was rude enough to say this:
"2Admin: Sorry if the message doesn't suit your forum. Kindly ask to move it to an appropriate section. Thank you"

Now, this idea comes to mind: Should we create an appropriate section for spammers ?

Yes, I have just the place: big red wall with holes in it. The wall wasn't red in the beginning, but bloodstains... you know, and holes are caliber .44

Oh, and are those GMT time? It's important!
Oh, and I will create some kind of resource-net for mods and admins to gather spam-words for our brand new Block-A-Spam(tm).

Why don't you ask a technical questions about delphi? Small quiz while registering may useful. So site can detect real delphi programmers. :)


Even after installing several spam filters, we have still spam messages in the forum. Now, the last chance is applying idea of cozturk.

If you have good Delphi questions that even a beginner can answer it, please post it to me via PM (private message).

Thanks
