A Way to fight Spammers...
Jun 02 2016 02:49 pm #1DeepBlueJoy
I saw the note about the spam attacks, and found in my message inbox ALL my new messages were Russian spam. I really do hope we can put some kind of barrier up to this... Do we require a CAPCHA to apply for membership? It seems that the spammers are getting through somehow. I know it's hard. I don't know a single fanfic site that doesn't struggle with this problem. Any ideas from the membership would be welcome. Other than the capcha (which I don't know if we have) or the manual member approval, which we do, I don't know what is to be done to stop the bastards. Fortunately I haven't seen any spam stories yet and I am unaware of any spam reviews, though admittedly, I don't always read reviews by other people.
Anyway, thanks for all the hard work that our mods do. Anyone with ideas how to thwart the spambastards, please step up!!
If you are under the age of 17, please use your head and do not read fics that are labeled "NC-17". Parents, I cannot control what your children are reading, so please be advised that the majority of the fics archived here are NOT suitable for those under the age of 17.
I do not own Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I am in no way making any profit from this site. This is for pure entertainment purposes only.
