How about a "thank you" to HATBC, guys?

She found and removed spam for us today!


Thank you, HATBC! I really appreciate it!
:D

No need to thank me, I'm just doing my job! ;)

Nevertheless though, you're welcome. I was glad I caught it when I did, too.

Well done HATBC! I hate spam :evil:

When I clicked onto the forum from my favorites (of course it's in my favorites! LOL!) I wasn't logged in automatically like I usually am. No biggie, I just logged in, but it said I hadn't been on since Nov 19th and I know it hadn't been that long since I've been here. Then, looking at some of the posts I realized some topics are missing quite a few posts. Have I gone crazy (which may very well be the case!) or have some been deleted? I'm sure I've made some comments as well as others which are no longer there. Does the spam have anything to do with this? :?

Well, I'm glad you were doing your job. As I've said before, it's hard for me to be in various places at once and I really need my moderators. :D

That would be more along the lines of hacking, I believe.
Spam is unwanted posts....advertisements, offensive notes, etc.

I haven't noticed anything missing. I guess I'll have to check it out. Can you enlighten me on which topics are gone?

I may have some of them set to be deleted after a certain amount of time, provided they're not popular topics.

The forum was moved to a new server a few days ago, and I don't know if that's the problem or not. I haven't gotten any notes about it.

I didn't notice any missing posts until mm mentioned. I had two topics bookmarked so I could reply when I had I chance and I just went to check them and a number of posts were MIA...the one about Fred on Accidentally on Purpose and the one about "V" are the two that I looked at.

I don't think spam would have had anything to do with it, and I don't think the forum was hacked either. Maybe it did have to do with the move. Luckily, though, not ALL the posts are gone like before.

Yeah, I'm thinking it was the move, too.

They may have the posts saved.

Oh good, so I'm not going crazy then (well, about this, anyway! LOL!) The two topics you mentioned HATBC where the ones I noticed, too. Oh well, as long as it's only a few posts it's not too bad. I just hope that's all it will be. :?
