Ride til we Rot

Ride til we Rot and Party til we Drop

Hi guys, is there some way to block unwanted spamers mailing through the site?

I've had so many mails from nutters wanting to bring happyness to my body that my O'l lady is starting to look at me funny.

 

Ride safe

No worries, I just ignore 'em. Just wondered how they get access without being a member.

Cheers Bro

James,

 Unfortunately as we are on the WW net, spammers will always target popular sites.

At most times a member of R'tWR admin will be online somewhere in the world and we endevour to shut any spam as quickly as possible.

 We have no other option than to manage spam as it attacks.

 Please accept our appoligies in this regard, but we do act as promptly as we are able.

Haha yeah right, I lived in west africa for awhile, these gals just see a chance to get out of their shitty lives so any whitey will do.

Is there anyway to screen people wanting to join or is it impossible to sus out imposters?

hi there james

 

myself and trikeskull have already looked into this problem many times. sadly there is no answer to it as the amount of various email net works these spammers use make it impossible to control them that way ( ie yahoo, gmail, hotmail addresses) all are used legitimately by most people but also by spammers.

 

in the early days we did not have this problem at all, but then as the society grew and also the amount of other clubs/societies etc started coming on to see our events pages and photos as we do have some of the best on the net, the traffic on the site became amazing... this then shot us up to the top of the google list and on some image lists, and that is how spammers found us..

for example.. if you click on google images and put in trikeskull.. and then scroll down you will looking at loads of photos of him and various do's he has been to.. then try ...ride til we rot ...and the images there are plentiful.... likewise just putting ' ride til' on the ordinary google www and it comes up with us. we are also on face book and many other biker sites..in fact members riddle the net on many sites from fishing sites to golfing sites to cooking sites.

 

this is how spammers have found us, so we keep an eagle on our site and usually manage to get rid within an hour of them posting. sadly the messages they send privately cannot be gotten rid of by the admin teams worldwide as no administrator can access private mail.

 

all sites have this problem, the trouble with spammers is that when they are caught up with, they just get another email address..and start the cycle all over again.

the one called philo that we had the other day would have been castrated by me if i could have found where she lives, she actually joined the site 5 times in a space of 20 minutes and as fast as i was deleting her for spam she was using another email address...

it is now 3.30 in the morning in the uk..just before i go to bed i come and see if there are spammers..it will be 2.30 in the afternoon in NZ and admin their will be looking... 12.30 in australia and i know sturgis will be looking sometime during the afternoon....21.30 in texas and reddog will be poised with his delete finger..so we do try to cover all time zones but sadly we do sleep sometimes or go to work..lol...all at different hours...and who said time travel was not possible..??

 

my advice is to just delete the devils...

 

all the best manda x

found this on the net from other disgruntled site owners ... they agree there is no answer..YET

 

Spammers used what's called "spam bots" to find links to forums, blogs, or even a site that allow them to post anything, by crawling from one link/page to the next, and so on.

There are at least three different kinds of spam bots: email harvesters, mail servers and comment spammers (the most common on forums and blogs today). They use fake, spoofed or hijacked IP addresses to cover their tracks, therefore IP bans on them are ineffective.

Sadly they have been around for years, but there's little forum developers can do to filter them out, but except to use and update their CAPTCHA code to prevent them from posting their spam.

This is being handled on a different level today, the anti-spam blacklist companies have already taken over and actively monitoring suspected IPs and shutting down the persons who are conducting these spamming activities on the Internet. Because of this, spammers may have forced to use a different method of spamming - posting their commercial spam on various sites across the Internet.

I saw the the site is now on the top of the google page,Congrats with that!! quite an achievment.  

hi James ,  yep me too. Pain in the proverbial isn't it?  I just mark them as "report spam" - maybe gmail can do something. I I get any joy I'll leave a posting for everyone.

 

cheers mate, ride safe

 

Bob

Cheers Bob, keep us posted. Would be good to give them some of their own med's

we now have a new security system on the site called catcha... it stops bot spammers.

it will only effect new members trying to join. there is also another bit to the catcha programe where a short quiz can be answered with us setting questions to answer.

 

we thought we would omit this for now and see how the catcha works, as it will be difficult for us to set questions as some members do not have english as their first language and would struggle.

most spammers are bot spies. (robotic) so i hope to see an improvement.

all the best
