    Forum Administration?

    Are there any administrators on this forum other then Robert?

    Minor housekeeping that perhaps they could perform? spam related or possibly security issue

    Re: Forum Administration?

    Yes, the other moderators are myself, Joe and Cameron. As you know Robert is away at the moment so we are doing our best to pick up the slack.

    But you can help us by reporting any posts you see that are spam or inappropriate.

    However I haven't seen much spam lately, and most of it gets picked up by the automatic filters so you never see it. And what is this security issue you are referring to?

    Re: Forum Administration?

    I received a message through the private system from a new member, it appeared to be structured incorrectly and the nature of some of that content was that I did not click the included links.

    Quite possibly only porn but initially I thought it may have been a direct injection type of spam but after the post I did see it came from a member so that is unlikely.

    I will not name the member here in case I am incorrect - would not be the first time

    I also received an inappropriately titled message I strongly suspect from a spam robot or new user. Have details as it was emailled to me but not showing up here.

    They must think we LandRover drivers are so poor fromfixing our cars that we have no money and so are not worth phising!

    I received what looked to be inappropriate e-mail probably same as Matt, but it isn't in Private messages either.

    To those who have not received this spam, please do not feel too bad about it.

    I am sure that in the fullness of times drivers of lesser vehicles will also get some - spam that is :-)

    Yep, I got one too. That means they are also targeting Hilux owners.

    Re: Forum Administration?

    I got the email too but the not the PM. That probably means one of the other moderators deleted them and banned the user before we checked our PMs.

    The forum receives half a dozen or more spam posts every day, but most users never see them because of the automated filters, which we mods check through before deleting (and banning the user) or validating if it is a real post.

    However since PMs usually get emailed to the users automatically, you would have got the email before they get a chance to be deleted/banned.
