Hi,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I've went through that thread and removed all the nonsense posts and banned the users. Keep us posted if you notice any more of this.

There are 4 new spammers in the reloading section. Please block them out.

do you mind if we block the sales section from new users?

I could clear up the spam there. and we can install some spam prevention plugins in the forum if the mods want.

I think there should be a certain limit set. Say 25 posts or 60 days on board until you can post anything for sale.

I have been following and reporting spam. They have been knocking them down but they keep coming back with a different name.

To help with this we've increased our scanner threshold and added some redundancies to work with it, locking out sections specifically can have some side effects so we will do that on Monday Morning so there's proper coverage to manage it.

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to follow up the issue and see if there are still spammers? We have implemented some strategies to prevent spammers on the backend of the forum.

Best regards,

Edward
