Poor Jason. This is a lousy way to spend your Saturday. Stupid spammers! ::grumble grumble::

Just know that we appreciate all you do to keep Steepster a nice place.

If you say their name three times they’ll come back again! :)

But seriously, it’s better to not put that in this thread at all because then if a spider crawls this thread it will then be a relevant search result.

Our lovely spammer’s are now adding made up teas by made up companies to their wish lists!

They’ve been expanding and trying everything. I’ve been trying to keep an eye on them though.

mini spam attack

Sigh…they are so persistent, wish they could just find another bone to chew on!

Ugh, not again. I wish the evil robots would leave us alone.

Ok so now we’re up from mini to full on attack mode…

How in the name of the green space god are they adding teas?

Holy Mary Mother of Mudkips that is excessive! I do not envy the people in charge of cleaning that mess up (thank you!!)

Yeah, they are getting more and more aggressive, and they seem to “conveniently” invade when Jason is not around…

shifty eyes inside job maybe?

I doubt it, but if it does turn into a hardboiled spam mystery, I totally called it

Depending on where they’re from, it could be a time zone thing. They seem more active when it evening here, or the middle of the night when only the tea owls (me) are on.

Their probably from Indonesia, with addresses in Jakarta etc..

I just wished someone could monitor this place at all time, since this is now a persistent and recurrent problem…and by someone, I mean other than Jason, I know he can’t work around the clock….

But evenings should definitely be supervised. You are right about the time zone thing Lariel…they rarely attack day time.

Yea, they seem to all advertise jakarta services but not sure if they’re posting from there. They seem to post throughout the day/night, but lately I’ve been checking frequently during the day to stop it before it gets out of hand. Will probably have to add captchas for new accounts…but I’m not yet convinced these aren’t humans. In that case, we may also have to add some user spam tools.

We’ll keep looking into it. As always, thanks for your patience and understanding.

That was a particularly mean one…

There are still a lot of posts on pages 2 and 3, in case you want to remove them.
