Spam! We have been cleansed, hopefully for a while

Anything and Everything ... with in reason. Good place to find a foursome or if you're not sure where to post.

It's not stopping. There was someone a while back that talked about setting something up to stop this stuff when it was a problem sometime ago. Something has to be done though. If the site starts turning into a home for spam it will probably die.

Yep, this is a particularly nasty outbreak going down.

Apparently al qaeda has relocated from the Bowling Green area and reside on the GKL boards instead or at least the Kentucky Courses section...

A-Dub and I sure do agree on this. This crap is going to kill this website. Really nasty.

For a while it looked like only American spammers on the 'Ohio Courses' thread. But now it looks like the Russians have invaded GKL. Maybe we need to contact the NSA and warn them. Who the hell knows what is really going on here?

Am I being serious? Somewhat. We DONT know what this is. :shock:

Like crabgrass, it chokes out everything else around it. Good and bad alike.

What is jacked is that they are all old registrations at this point. There was something with the site upgrade that opened the floodgates.

I'll see if I can get all the registrations from that time cleaned up.

Sorry folks.

That is several days with no spam? Hope I didn't just jinx it
