Thanks everyone!

we'll continue to clean things up and monitor the threads. It just seems that this latest group feeds off each other to tries to make the spam look legit
And Chris is looking at some improvements but I agree that we may have to go to another process for joining in order to prevent this stuff from getting posted

I get what I can when I can. It used to be a lot worse. We get flare-ups every now and then though.


BTW.....I'm the fake moderator.....

Thanks for your efforts!

As someone who runs a message board, I know what a pain spammers can be. I ended up turning off auto-registration completely because it got so bad.

It's a shame, but they'll be back. They always come back. It's really stupid sometimes what they try and promote. The guys we just had here were trying to push bus tours. "WE'RE HIKERS"!

Although VFTT got it right with their registration process, I hope Hike-NH doesn't get so overrun with spammers that we have to do what they do as far as registration goes.


VFTT moderators delete way more spam in a single day than this site gets in a month. I can share my blocked IP list with you, Bill, if you want it... VFTT users don't see the spam because unregistered users (trail conditions) sit in the moderation queue and have to be sorted through along with the valid trail conditions.

Thank you for all the work you do! This is my favorite website! And I apologize, because I couldn't resist commenting on Rock Creek Park this morning! BTW, I have a friend named Priya. If she ever gets interested in hiking and wants to join, I will tell her to change her name :lol: :lol: :lol:!

If we did what vftt does, there would be even fewer new legit posters. I like new people. Perhaps another mod or two that could watch out for spam could help. There are a few I could recommend a off the top of my head. If they are willing to do it that is.

Hey! What chew sayin' girl? :lol: It's funny, I was gonna use JoeR for my user name. JustJoe and JoeR....a bit weird, huh?

On the board I moderate, they come in waves it seems. These guys will lose their flare ups eventually. And then they'll come back. It's a real shame though. There's nothing you can really do about if they keep using different IP Addy's.

AND THEN..... Justjoe's girlfriend is Becky with a y and some other guy had a girl friend named Becky (last post was Red Hill, about a year ago). I believe all three women have had knee situations at one time or another. Rebecca is Hebrew for lousy joints :lol:!

Priya is Sanskrit for spammer :lol:!
