    Please report our friendly S Korean Spammers

    Hiya all,

    Please could I ask you a favour?

    You may have noticed that our friends from South Korea are back and spamming a few times per week.

    Admins catch these as soon as we come online, but sometimes this isn't before the spammer has totally swamped the forum with 300+ posts.

    We can delete a certain amount all in one go but the others we have to delete one by one..... which I am sure you can appreciate takes a long time

    Obviously that is our job as admins but.......

    If you see south Korean Spam (you will know what it is) please could you use the report feature to report it.

    The reason being that it will then send an email to all of the Admins who then may be able to come online earlier and splat the spammer before it gets to the stage of us having to delete each post individually.

    Thank you so much

    Emmz x

    OK will do if I am here when a spammer spams all over the forum

    question though: how will we know its korean spam? I do not speak a word of korean, i doubt i would recognise what language it was, it could be Chinese spam (no offence to chinese people) for all i would be able to tell.

    Yeah, it's definitely Korean. I always make jokes about it being people from the North (because they aren't allowed to use the internet) and they get so excited to be using it, they post over and over again. But its South Korean guys. I speak some Korean, but they won't answer you. They just want to promote their website.

    ok understood

    another question cause i a pain:

    if we see a normal post but the link in the signature looks to be a spammy one, is it the right thing to do to report it so one of the staffs can have a look?

    i reported one just now, not sure if i did the right thing though

    this post, he has a sneaky white coloured link in his signature and it looks like it leads to a spammy site: https://www.nomorepanic.co.uk/showth...41#post1948241

    Will do. She's normally on in the night when I pop on.

    I used to report this one but with it being most days I assumed you likely checked and my reports might just be more work to look through that you didn't need.

    Re: Please report our friendly S Korean Spammers

    Thank you to all who reported our friend this morning

    Pip dealt with them today.

    MNIT, it just helps that if we are late coming on for any reason that we will see a reported thread in our emails so therefore come on earlier than we were planning to wop them (wouldn't have helped this morning for me, I slept til 10.30 am so didn't even look at my emails I am a night owl) good job pip was on the case.

    I will look at my emails on my phone when I first wake up as it will tell me any dupes accounts, reported threads etc but I don't come on to the forum properly until I fire up the desktop, as the admin stuff is much easier to do on there...... My Emails will mostly give me an idea on how eager I need to be to log in, if that makes sense.

    We will obviously deal with our friends when anyone of us logs in but if we are pre-warned then will be there sooner.... so the report helps us rather than gives us more work... so thank you for reporting them, and all the rest of the spam (same goes to our other reporters)

    Many thanks

    ps Terry, what makes you say our friends are female? just curious
