THANK YOU MIKE!

I wonder if the spam bots are following the net-crawlers and attacked as crawler hit the page...

you know.. .if that is true.... then there may be a way to prepare/defend against it next time without taxing our two mods....


Too whom we owe a BIG

Thank you for the appreciation, Father. Gary and I have been putting in a lot of long hours here to take the garbage out - the last 2 days have been pretty rough. We booted 78 spammers yesterday and have booted probably another 30-35 again today thus far. There is more to banning than just hitting the button - we have to check the ISP's and document every ban or suspicious user. We wouldn't do it, though, if we didn't feel this board and its members were the best Steelers site and fans on the face of the earth!

Love the new sig - how VERY true!

I don't think most of us know just how hard they worked on this. They spent the entire day, early morning to late at night and a good part of the next day fighting this thing for us. Some of us have no problem giving them hell, now lets see if you are man or woman enough to just say thank you.
Marianne, Gary, thank you so much for everything you do.

Thank you so much, Ed. It's nice to know we are appreciated around here! I don't think many people realize how much work a Mod/Admin does on a BB, especially one as large as SF. It is a strictly volunteer position and sometimes we have to put our "real lives" on hold for an hour or two (or lately, several days) to straighten out a problem(s). Hey - we take the good with the bad. We know we are appreciated by those here who contribute to the forums with their knowledge and respectful posts. For those who don't (and I think I speak for Gary here too!) - - -

Yes, there is and thanks for asking and wanting to help!

Preacher, NC, klick and several others have been keeping their eyes out for SPAM and the gross porno (hey - I enjoy some porno but not this disgusting stuff that's been posted the last couple of days.) and reporting the post(s). It makes our jobs easier because the reported post goes straight to the Mods forum here on the board and to our email boxes so we can be alerted to a problem when logging on to our computers and checking our email.

Thanks for your help in advance and to everyone who has helped us out thus far, a HUGE THANK YOU!!!!
