Subject: 99slotmachines Get 700% Bonus



Ditto. Though actually quite relived. Was feeling very left out seeing as everyone else seemed to be getting one and not me [:(]



I got that one too.




matty_b -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 11:25:17 AM)

Me too...




Miles Messervy 007 -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 11:36:28 AM)

Just got 2 for the first time, from OkEaNLyuBvI and dikayashtuchka




elab49 -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 11:56:20 AM)

All gone.

Annoying all this, innit? [&:]




Sad Professor -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 12:49:01 PM)

I got one from dikayashtuchka too. " Get $6100 Free cash bonuses".... yeah right [sm=rolleyes10.gif][sm=33.gif]

All the e-mails are more or less the same - I got that one myself this time.

ID has already gone along with 10 others registered - all are using the same e-mail and we're monitoring it to try and catch it when it signs up.


Not particularly intelligent bots! Sending spam to mods.... "lol".


Can the admin send out emails or PMs to warn/advise all the users about the spam going around? Obviously not everyone will see this thread.




Baby Bear -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 2:49:05 PM)

I got that one too, Professor!

Interesting question. Although given the tendency for the site hamsters to fall over, sending a PM to nearly 300000 users may inadvertently end up solving the problem as the site crashes indefinitely! [:D]




rawlinson -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 3:45:46 PM)

Yeah, I got dikayashtuchka as well. Can't some system be set up where new users can't send pms or emails until they've made a certain number of forum posts?




elab49 -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 3:58:30 PM)

I mentioned that as an option above - but it's down to Empire, really (and they do know as they've been getting them too [:)])




rawlinson -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 4:02:06 PM)

Sorry, must have missed you making the suggestion. [:)] Emails never reach me through the site, I never get notifications when I have pms and then today I finally get one and it's for spam. [:D]




Sad Professor -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 4:02:21 PM)

Well they defintely have the ability to send mass emails as I often get them from EMPIRE himself spamming the shit out of their own ads and wheatever!




elab49 -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 4:07:20 PM)

You have to opt in to Empire e-mails. If you don't want them, then just change the setting. Empire ran a campaign a couple of years ago trying to encourage users to opt in to them, so it was clear it wasn't an automatic thing.

If you have opted in either untick the box, or use the unsubscribe link provided in every e-mail.




Sad Professor -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 4:32:01 PM)

I'm not that bothered like... just joking lol




Harley Quinn -> RE: Spam alert (23/5/2010 9:44:04 PM)

I've had a couple but it looks like you've deleted the users.




UnderJ -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 11:04:05 AM)

I got 3 at 10am this morning from
Vanilnyiiogurt

More online casino bullsh*t




elab49 -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 11:04:58 AM)

The ID and the others it registered with are now all kaput, thank you.




tftrman -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 11:16:53 AM)

I've had a casino one off - dikayashtuchka




elab49 -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 11:26:25 AM)

Can I ask when the PM was sent? That ID has been banned for a couple of days.




idavid -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 11:29:53 AM)

I've had the following:

Vanilnyiiogurt  - 24/5/2010 10:58:50 AM

Sorry, should have checked - 23/5/10 at 8.30am. I did click the member profile and it still lets me into, or is that normal?




Hobbitonlass -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 11:30:41 AM)

elab, those ones were sent on 23rd as I've just looked and I had one (never go in my Inbox [:D] ).




elab49 -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 11:40:02 AM)

Thank you Idavid - all those IDs are gone. There are slightly fewer registered today - maybe they're getting bored [&:]




Alcibiades -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 3:15:16 PM)

Hi!
I'm using the same reporting method: I got a PM from Belayakoshechka, which was also spam. Can he/she/it be given a stem warning, please?
Merci!




elab49 -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 3:23:44 PM)

Along with the others, the IDs are getting immediate bans. We're very very stern.

Thanks for posting [:)]

This is becoming annoying now.
Poster Kirillinka for "immediate ban" please.
Can you not contact the sites this spam is advertising? Or would that likely just cause more spam?
Anymore of this and I just might ask you to remove my registration




jochrisbryan -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 8:33:02 PM)

I just had this

You have received a Private Message from Kirillinka with the subject   Play At William Hill Casino .




Rinc -> RE: Spam alert (24/5/2010 8:35:00 PM)

Just ignore them as much as you can. Kirillinka is gone and we're doing our best to get rid of other aliases. [:)]

Yes, I just reported that poster above.
William Hill Casino won't be getting any visits from me.

I get an E-Mail each time a "private message" is received. I also get a an "Error 500" message if I try to change (or view) my forum preferences.
I have never received Spam PMs on any other board I visit. Why is there no "report pm" function?
