|We received an avalanche of spam in Dogster Forums and Answers today. Watch Dog, the Moderators, and I removed hundreds of spam posts. Unfortunately, the spammers are creating accounts regulary, and posting in the Forums consistently, every minute or so. Legitimate posts are buried 25 pages in.
The Tech Team and Ops Urgent were unable to resolve the issue or remove the SPAM posts in the Forums today, nor are they able to investigate further until Monday.
In the meantime, in an effort to thwart the spammers I requested to have Dogster registration disabled. Unfortunately, they are somehow making their way around the disabled registration. I have tried unsuccessfully to "bump" buried posts but the spammers one up me. Le sigh.
Please know that the Community team is doing everything we can to remove existing spam in the Forums and hope the technical team will find a permanent solution after the week's end.
Thanks for all your help flagging these posts and have a great weekend!
