Hopefully someone who runs the site sees this; there is a spammer on here posting a lot of gook under multiple user names Kawahot and Fozzhot, and other names ending in "hot". Is it possible to block this person? They seem to be taking over the discussion board, while I'm not sure it's going to hack anything, it's very annoying as they are posting topic after topic of junk.

You beat me to it ListenAtWork. I was just about to post something very similar. I really hope that someone out there can fix this soon.

Sorry guys? popped in today to have a look and realized how out of hand some spammers have gotten. I think I've cleaned it up for the most part, but if I've forgotten something let me know.

Jack, help! The homepage as well as others are being polluted with computer code, as you can see above. I entered a fake tip just to make sure that they would display, and they do, but somebody clearly has it out for this site. I hope you can fix it!

That was the intention, but those crafty spammers found a way in regardless. I've cleaned it up for now, I'll keep an eye on things and see if I can figure out how that one got by.

"Your 5pm tip is zarina.co.in". That's a creative way to spam us. Think susukia should be banned too?

Based on this ^ and this > "Your 7am tip is internet Market -- Shared by Logiclix · 2:48 pm · Confidence: 0" ... this seems targeted toward the page... not just a random robo-spam.



Also... on the old Loungetips.com... if a tip got a certain number of thumbs down votes, it would disappear off the page... but that doesn't seem to be a function on the new site. Is there any way to bring that back?

Thanks for your patience all—continuing to try to add restrictions to keep this from happening. I've also added in a filter on the homepage so that tips that have three or more bad reports (and we may tweak this later) will be hidden.



—happy listening
