Jebba, mind giving me (and the rest of the moderators) priviledges on Politics so that this crap can be deleted?

Hi stevo32, I added you as a moderator for all forums. I deleted the crap ones as I did the other 4/5 over the past few days. I noted the IP address each time and it was the same. So yesterday I banned the username this person was using and today when they used guest, I banned their IP as well.

Alright, thanks Jason. :) This should help with the spam cleaning. :)

Also, here's a spammy user: http://forums.blagblagblag.org/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=352

At one point the page in the URL field linked to a site with pr0n on it, so you might want to delete it...

Thanks,

Stephen Clement (please delete this topic when you've read this, jason.)

Not sure if this version of phpbb allows the deletion of users. So it might have to be a manual job in the db. Jeff, might giving access so I can update the phpbb version or can you do it? FTP should be enough.

Updating phpBB is already on his list of things to be done...

Thanks,

Ok cool thanks. I didn't see the list :) I was just offering in case Jeff was uber busy and it is one of the few things I can help with given my Linux dev skills suck. Anyways thanks for letting me know :)

Somebody please delete this "methylene" user, they've posted a now-deleted post to this topic offering "special" pills.

Looks like it didn't work ("banning" them).

More than one ip, also telnetting probably.

Yeah the ban list seems to go with phpBB updates I think. There was a bunch of deleted names. Seems to have shrunk. We can just re-ban them.

I'm just blocking them at the firewall :) It's more thorough than just phpBB, plus I trust openbsd's pf far more than anything in php....

Did this on another forum 2 days ago :)

Code:
DELETE FROM `phpbb_users` WHERE `user_posts`=0


I do find the amount of spam users signing up rather amusing though. Never knew BLAG was so popular :p
