[FORUM] Stats & Thank you

Post by walton » Tue Jul 25, 2017 10:07 am

We've just past 3 months, with:
  • 204 members
  • 79 topics
  • 379 posts
Thank you!

I haven't seen as much spam here in the last few weeks as we had in the month before. Sarah get here before me and usually zaps them, thank you. And, maybe we've discouraged it.

And that's usually about the same time (early afternoon for me) when it does appear. Fortunately, it's not every day.

We're at:
  • 451 posts
    86 topics
    427 users
Thank you!

It's curious, today, with around 200+ spams on the CS forum, and that's been the case on and off lately. I found one post, unanswered, buried 10 pages down. Sad.

We have twice as many members as last time I reported, but very few additional topics.

That's because when I ban spammers, their accounts still stay in the total. So that vast majority of that number of members are spam accounts that have been banned.

I will confess to being irregular about it, but I have purged spammers, so they aren't in the system. There's a batch that are inactive, most, I suspect are potential spammers, but I have left them alone.

It amazes me when I look at the member list to see SO VERY MANY people with spammer sounding names and from spammer countries - Bulgaria, Russia, etc. I wonder what's going on, why are there so many people who have signed up and so very few of them who are posting anything.

I manage to delete a spam and ban a member once every couple of days it seems. When I see spam I don't hesitate to delete it and then I follow through by banning the member.
