Spam controls still aren't a perfect system guys.

As you are all in the 'learner' group the only way that we could visibly improve the spam system would be to limit everyone in your group's ability to send PM's.

Would you be willing to accept lesser/no PM abilities to cut down on spamming?

If so, let me know, and I'll do it, no one would ever get spam then because spammers would never bother taking the Quiz to get a higher group ranking (from 'Learner' to 'Comrade', the Comrade group has more permissions).

This could also encourage people to upgrade to Comrade just for the ability to PM. (Upgrading is done by taking the Quiz)

I look forward to hearing your ideas.

Why not, the quiz is already a good way to protect the forum from stupid posts

I noticed these spammers over the last couple days myself. Luckily they've been suspended before I got my hands on them, but it's good to know people are reporting them.

On another note, asking where we are before we can respond is counter-productive. We are based in different time zones all over the globe, so we do ask for your patience, one of us will usually be on it before you know it.

I got one of these too:

Hello friend, recommend you check your computer for viruses: http://antivirus.effectmeds.com/bofors


Clicking on the link generated a warning here.

I am wondering about the potential for exploiting Safari this way (i.e. directing known OS X users to a site that uses a buffer overrun attack).

This is one good reason to run Snow Leopard in k64, the memory is randomly mapped to defend against a buffer overrun attack on Safari.
