Spammers

Postby peteroldracer » Mon Sep 01, 2008 4:21 pm

If ever a new member profile screamed "spammer" or "troll" it is "teenyGaiple" who joined today - location "Armenia", occupation, "enforcement, security"....
Who could this be?!

Well, Benidorm is away for a few weeks, did he say he was going East or West?
Maybe its Campo Kenny in disguise about to instill fear amongst the rest of us and seek revenge :lol:

Anyone who signs-up for an account may appear on the newest registered users, that is a feature of phpbb noticeboard. However Spam accounts are obviously never authenticated, and therefore the users never have a fully functioning noticeboard account and cannot post.

annie, I am not sure if you are saying that you don't understand where the 'new user profile' is visible or not, however, just in case you want to have a look, go to the bottom of the index page and down at the bottom, under the Andalucia.com Amigos, it says 'who is on line'. It mentions 'newest registered user', and if you click on the name it gives you details of the user profile.
A word of warning. If a website link is shown in the user profile, I would suggest that you do not click on the link, as it probably will lead to a *beep* site :oops:

Or, depending on your outlook, from the advice above remove the word "not"! :shock:
