Re: How to Stop Spam Email

This forum is for Forum Spam, not for e-mail spam.
Also I removed the url from the post, Posting links to
a commercial site, IE : .com is considered spam here
and usually is submitted to the data base.
  So that is what I have done, you have been submitted to the data base
as a spammer.

Re: How to Stop Spam Email

In case any body is wondering why I didn't move this to the "trash bin" , here is a short explanation.
Occasionally we do get posts, where the users seem to think this is "stop e-mail spam", and it is not
"stop e-mail spam" it is :
Stop Forum Spam 

Also we get quiet a few posts from new members, where they seem to think it is necessary to post
a url to the website or forum  they are having problems with.
Normally the URL is not needed, and this is what will happen if one posts a URL to their commercial
website,... they will get added to the data base and banned.

Nice try... at least he admitted he's from India (spammer haven).


We need better spam proofing technology - preferably the kind that electrocutes spammers with 50,000 volts 100 amps the moment they click "Post".

Re: How to Stop Spam Email

It is important any new members, registrars, read the forum rules, before posting or modifying their profile:
https://www.stopforumspam.com/forum/mis … tion=rules

Do not sign up using a Hotmail, Outlook, AOL email address. They delete our forum signup emails.

Do NOT signup from an email that sends us a verification email back, we don't get them and will ignore ALL requests (SpamArrest etc)

Because this is the last place you would expect to find spam or commercial advertising as part of our members profile and posts, the following guidelines are in effect.

We will not permit signature links, website fields or usernames that contain:
• Linking to any form of pornography.
• Any "SEO" type forum or website.
• Any type of "hacking" website.
• Any website or forum that is commercial in nature (selling a product or service).

DO NOT REGISTER AN ACCOUNT USERNAME THAT REPRESENTS A DOMAIN

More details regarding the above here and your acceptance and subsequent registration indicates you have read, understood and will abide by these terms. Failure to comply with these policies will result in your account terminated and your data entered into the spam database.

If the flavour of your website is to sell or promote a product or service, is "SEO" in nature, includes hacking and related agenda, or is of "adult nature", DO NOT link to it unless otherwise previously requested to do so by a member of the SFS team for support reasons.

Posting links, backlinks, SEO or anything else dubious or illegal, in signatures or posts, will result in your account being banned and your details entered into the database. If in doubt, just don't do it. Harsh? Perhaps but this is the last forum in the world that will tolerate forum spam smile

They are clear enough.

Re: How to Stop Spam Email

It could have been a (really stupid) bot or a "what's this? i agree just so i can register an account and post" human. The username looks legit, however.

>i have HTML website

Wow, that's a rare thing to see in the web... almost every site in the world uses HTML.


Funny thing is SFS blocks me from trolling behind proxies big_smile

Re: How to Stop Spam Email

We had another post yesterday, similar, except that it was actually a website, / forum,...but still there is no need
to post the url for the website, when asking for help on keeping spam off a site.
   It seems like a new trend, spammers asking us how to keep their sites from being spammed, but they want
to be able to spam other sites........
