Dear Seniors and Friends,

WOFS is getting worst in terms of spams and etc. To my horror, I received a alot of spam messages and spam responses from the forum discussion topics...

Can we do anything about this?

Thanks!

Only kenji and hoemun can ban members.
Moderators can only delete posts what we do but spammers are fasters.

Dear Moderators,

I am getting spam letters from this forum in my email and they are increasing.
Somebody is posting medicinal advertisements in this forum lately. This is really bad you should ban these members this is a fengshui forum.

Regards,
Mukhtar

The spam will destroy this Forum if not stopped.
One can no longer tell what threads are new with questions or answers, and which are mere spam. So there's little point coming here.
Don't despair. The situation may not be nearly as bad as you think. -- I urge thoughtful analysis before making big changes. Yet I am not a practitioner and do not want your business. Find someone who is well trained near you

Deva dog is right. I am no longer answering questions because I am too busy taking out spam by the dozens. If the administrators can not block the spam then the spammers can have it. I am not coming back to take out spam again.

Hello.....

Is the forum really beyond hope?

How to mute account notifications?

If we don't want our accounts cancelled, should at least give us an option to turn off notifications,
as the spams are making a killing.

Hello,

Very very sad, every morning I have to perform Cosmic Spam Mail Cleansing in my mailbox.

Yesterday I saw RapaNui working very hard clearing all the spam. Well done!! RapaNui, but this is not a bullet proof way. If administrator or owner is not taking any action then please close the forum site and save all the members here from being harassed by such spam.

Dear Moderators,

This is what I received in my email and it is full of it. I am going on deleting it. really fed up.

A new post has been made to a topic to which you have subscribed on the WOFS Forum Forum

Subject : generic sildenafil 5576
Forum : Flying Star Feng Shui
Posted by : Shastyfausy

You can administer your subscriptions by following the 'My Profile' link on the Forum home page after you have logged in on the site. From your profile you can also unsubscribe from the topic.
URL:............................................................blah blah

Message: (This section is all filled with links of medicinal advertisements, women purses, ladies handbags etc) I have not posted it here, because reposting it will again create spam. You should delete this member and note down the IP number. This is becoming an advertisement forum.

-----



I am daily clearing my email of these spam letters.

I thinks so this infliction is greater than Grand Duke, Sui Po, 3 Killings, Fan yin, Fu Yin, 5 Yellow star, 2 sickness star and all worst star combined in a box. The Great Spam star in 2012.

Regards,
Mukhtar

Dear RapaNui

Every day, I have almost 15 spam mails, I was thinking someone has hacked into the wofs and started giving out the advertisements. I belive blocking their IP will be a better one.

cheers

Hi Gautam,
you have spam mails cause you subscribe topics. So when "spam" is written in this topic (which you subscribed) you have mail about it with the full text.

I also think that it need block this IP but....we, moderators, CANNOT do it !
As I wrote : ONLY administrators (Kenji or Hoemun) can ban and block.
Moderator can ONLY delete such posts, what I do from some days...this is "Sisyphean job".

cheers, RapaNui
