Title: spammer on the horizon..
Post by: CosmicD on August 19, 2006, 01:21:59 am
I just got a very unrelated and not to mention unwanted spam in my email from Don Johnson,

Atleast I can't find the relevance of this pm: it has title, IMPORTANT NEWS AND INFORMATION and throws me all kind of sh*tlinks

Doesn't this just make you angry, to see how spammers just find new way to annoy you ?

Title: The internet may be for it but not here.
Post by: Cobra on August 19, 2006, 01:37:34 am
Ok There is some new user sending out PM's with porn in them. Now if people want to look at it thats all well and good I'd be lying if I said I never had but I have a problem one its not exactly something I want to see I wont go into it any more than that for reasons of good taste. Now I'm not uptight or anything but there are some young people on this site and really I doubt mums and dads out there want to find out little timmy has been receiving nude pics via a gaming website. I don't knwo if this is the right forum to voice this concern but I hope LadyM or Oviraptor can do something about this.

If you need to know who this user is I'll PM his name him to you.

Don't even mention the content!  Just don't; it doesn't help matters.
Title: Re: The internet may be for it but not here.
Post by: Mr. Consideration on August 19, 2006, 02:02:43 am
He Pm'ed me. Username is "Don_Johnson".
Problem is, people will check PM's before reading warning threads, paticularaly "important news."
Title: Re: The internet may be for it but not here.
Post by: Brutus on August 19, 2006, 02:06:42 am
would someone ban him please?

Post by: Henqix on August 19, 2006, 02:16:18 am
Isn't there any way to send a PM to everyone at the same time, warning them about his messages and posts.
Title: Re: DO NOT READ "IMPORTANT NEWS AND INFORMATION"
Post by: Brutus on August 19, 2006, 02:18:25 am
telling people not to go on that thread but not telling them why they shouldn't will make them want to go on it even more
Title: Re: PM with Porn in it?
Post by: Piloteer on August 19, 2006, 02:19:52 am
Yup, just got three of them.

Don't freak out though, it's harmless. Don't get me wrong, it's sick and offensive, but the mods will take care of it soon.

I hate spammers.

You replying to it probably isn't helping either.  It's like watching a Chinese firedrill.  Nothing to do but wait now.

Edit: And the people saying what's in it could delete those posts.  I'm sure all mention of this will be removed anyway.

Title: Re: DO NOT READ "IMPORTANT NEWS AND INFORMATION"

Twelve.

Everyone has reported the ones in Everything Else and whatnot, but I'm not sure if the ones in lesser visited sections like "Books" were reported, so I reported those.

Post by: Piloteer on August 19, 2006, 02:39:50 am
The topics will be deleted by the mods. That is no big deal. The worst part is that the mods cannot do anything about the PM's. People are just going to have to find out themselves.

Let's see:

Who has a track record of spamming forums they don't like?
Who has threatened to do just this not once but twice before?
Who has a grudge against the forum (read who has been banned recently)?
Who is enough of an immature little child to try to pull something like this?

It's a pronographic spam message/pm from new user. Please just delete it, we are working on the problem.

I am merging all of the topics about this into one topic. Please keep discussion there in the one topic.

Interestingly enough it seems that Zombie was IP banned and MAC banned. He's either using someone else's computer, or he's using the MAC spoofer that someone (*cough*Mason11987*cough*) gave to him.

Either way, he should be reported to his ISP.

EDIT: My sincerest apologies to Flamester. I went over the chat logs and it appears that it was Mason who gave him the address.

Don't forget to delete the one (Or 2) that were forwarded to your e-mails guys. Like other PMs.

anyway...

It was Zombie? Yeesh.
not totally unbelieveable, but somewhat unexpected...

and I thought people's profiles dissapeared and it said "GUEST" under them when they were banned. Zombie's profile is still very visible.

hm... :-\

I just onto the site this morning and saw this, it was nothing more than a spammer who was using the PM system to send out his messages.

His account was deleted and IP blocked, I apologize to everyone for this. If anything like this happens in the future please let me know right away and we'll remove the offending person right away. Thanks.

Just checking, but if it were female would you all be reacting the way you are?

I certainly would. I personally have no problems with the idea of adult entertainment, but I do resent unsolicited pornographic images sent to people, causing the danger that they could get into trouble at work, or a child could be within view of the computer when the messages were opened.
There's a time and place for everything, and this is a family friendly site.

A big thanks to LadyM and to Steve for dealing with the problem.

I propose that guests and brand-spanking new members shouldn't even have PM powers at all. You should need a week or two of good behavior. That would nip this nonsense in the bud.

-my 2 cents.

Yeah like everyone else I got it too and the thing is, when I first logged into my email and seen it was a Gaming Steve email I was like OMG its about contributing to the site and clicked it right away then BAM.

Man, never been so disappointed in my life. :(

Ah. I only happened across this thread by chance (through someone elses profile -> recent threads), but its too late, poor LadyM just got clunked over the head by another "Hey, someone is trying to get me to look at their crotch" PM. I really should venture out of the spore forum occasionally, and perhaps LadyM needs some kind of hard-hat...

Don Johnson sent me 2 spam PMs with an asian man's **** on a picture (It'll take a year before I can look at them in the same way again *shudder*) and links to porn.

So did Steve just ban him, or is he going to follow through and report him to his ISP?

Can you ban a guest? because Don Johnson keeps PM me inappropriate links.

anyways, for those speculating its Damned Zombie, it is definitely NOT him. I know him well from another forum, and he even made a trhead on said forum about gettign around a mac ban...and he never found out how. Also, though he can be immature sometimes, he is NOT That immature or sick. He's just mildly eccentric :)

First I want to apologize for the recent spam that was sent out late last night. This disgusting act was performed by a new member who used the personal message system within the Gaming Steve forums. No email addresses or personal information was compromised during this spam attack, he was simply using the existing features within the message board itself.

Shortly after this attack was sent out he was immediately banned from the forums and his activity was reported to his ISP. However, by then the damage was done.

As for the messages themselves, not even the Site Admin has the power to read/delete your personal messages, so you will have to remove those from your inbox. Again I apologize that you must be subjected to this horrible message.

Going forward we want to keep the Gaming Steve forums an open, welcoming environment, while at the same time add controls to help prevent something like this from happening again in the future. To that end we have added the following measures:

1) Effective immediately all members will have to post a minimum of 50 messages on the site before they can send out PMs. I apologize to previous members who were using the PM feature and are currently under the 50 message count. However, we believe that 50 messages is low enough for serious members of the site but high enough to deter spammers and other undesirables.

2) We are adding additional moderators to the board. LadyM and Oviraptor have done a fantastic job, but considering the size of the board and the speed in which it is growing the time has come to add additional moderators. These additional eyes will help with the overall management of the site and allow members greater and easier access to moderators at all hours.

3) As of now forum registration of new members has been turned off. Once things get under control and a few days have passed we will reopen registration.

4) We are exploring additional features which can help in the prevention of spam, such as CAPTCHA entries as well as other measures.

Again I apologize for this event and hope that something like this never happens again. If you have any questions please feel free to write me, Gaming Steve, directly either through the PM system or at feedback@gamingsteve.com. Thanks for your understanding and let's put this behind us.
