Active spams on the off topic forum

Postby movieaddict_traveller » Wed Jul 05, 2017 6:00 am

I'm not sure this is the place to talk about this but there is for nearly a week now someone spamming the off-topic page with chinese (I think) messages. There are several posted everyday and the all forum is therefore a mess.
Are the admin of the watering hole doing something about this? Can't you ban this person?
It is now impossible to see "active topic" messages and reply to help fellow travellers.

I hope this message will help to solve this very annoying problem!

Cheers,

Julia

I was wondering when someone else would speak up. I reported one of the posts days ago and thought that maybe the I.T. department took the long weekend off. It's more than "several posted everyday". Its about one every minute!

I usually look at "new posts" to see if there is anything that I can help with. Not this week! At least its sticking to one category and not crashing the entire site.

Agreed! I have repeatedly reported the posts, but so far nothing appears to be being done about it

I've also reported some of them but come on!!! We can't do all of them!
The first week-end it happened I also thought the IT was off and then it will be fixed soon so still not ...
It's impossible to just look at "new posts" now ...
I don't know who we can contact about this problem! But something needs to be done now!
