Bad news: Spam has been on a serious uptick around here lately.

So the team tweaked some settings and the filter.

Good news: Spam is way down.

More bad news: Some non-spamming, definitely member types are getting clocked by the spam fighting SiteBot.

It's by no means an epidemic, but it's happened so I want to get this message out there to the good, non-spamming folks of N4G. :)

If this happens to you, or you suspect it happened to you, contact us via ticket:

If that SiteBot attacks me; I'm reachin' for my flute...

Donnieboi1083d ago (Edited 1083d ago )

Lol what??


@DedicatedToGamers and GreenRanger:

Thanks I get it now :D

The fact that non-spammers are being hit already worries me more than the spam itself.

Blacktric1083d ago

Great news. It's good to know that the admins and mods actively fighting against this crap.

Spam is actually a good sign, it takes a good site to get spammed, it means you're doing something right.

Glass half full and all that.

Sorry, crap sites do get spammed to.
their not that picky.

I mention the word Google and the site thinks I'm trying to submit spam. I glad its fixed now.

The person behind the spambots will just modify their comments so that the system doesn't detect them. I already seen it happen on other sites. For instance they might use symbols instead of letters, space out the website name or instead saying .com they might say dotcom.
