Check post number 21 here. Adult porn. This user has 9 posts all porn. (Not that there's anything wrong with porn)
User should probably be dumped!

In a likely effort to boost post count first, ronnycane is posting weird non-sequitors in old threads and almost content-free stuff in new threads . . . except for the sig link to the clothes he or she is selling.

Capitalist signature link to escort service. Not even close to arousing.

I love this thread! Even Whitey Bulgur couldn't order hits this easily.

Edit: Another thread http://eplaya.burningman.com/viewtopic.php?p=682595#p682595 from the same 'user'.

I think we lost Dork's anti-spam modification during the migration.

Plus we have a lot of new users we need to train to report spam here, not to reply to it.

There is an increase in spammers who try to blend in with comments or jokes, who have blatant links in their signature lines. I strongly suggest everyone look at the sig-line before replying.

Very determined spammer, I deleted similar posts this morning, but under a different username. Has to be an individual, registration now uses capture codes.

Cool. I will just tag them as I just did to a few more just now and forego posting in here then, if that works. Thanks, AntiM!

Newly registered nick with a spam website in their profile... no posts yet. Maybe we could be pre-emptive!

We could if mods could delete users, which we can't. But no fear, the posts came through. Those, I deleted.

A spammer a day.... most of these get in, drop seven to nine posts and never return. If they do return, it is with a different username/login/IP. Then there's the sneaky stealth spam with commercial signature lines.

Ever vigilant.

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

Thank you, got them. I've been using the reports on the mod control panel, so if you no longer want to copy and paste, just hit the "!" icon. It sends me a report and I can view the topic and.or post and access the mod actions drop down. This is one vast improvement from the mod angle!

Oooo. Wondered how to use that icon. Guess I can get rid of my toolbar link to this thread now.
