DC5R Hmmm...this site just tried to forward me to another one. What the heck happened there?

Deviant I noticed we get mostly the iphone, mp3 whatever lists with the email addresses in them, is there any option for not allowing posts to have an email address in them, and if when someone tries it blocks that post from happening? Not a big deal, just wondering.

Also, is this what the "make 3000 a month working part time from home" ads are all about?

Reasoning is usually its the data systems dont normally automatically generate that really is the most important

With all these spammers that come on I was questioning myself as to how many we actually get as a number or percentage if you will. Of course my next thought was how many members out of that total are truly valid members? When I joined this forum I was member 1214 I believe. Now we are up to 17K+ three years later which is excellent growth btw. But what is the true growth.

My questions are...

1) Out of the 17K+ members registered on this site how many have come back in the last three months....who have been members for 1 or more years and have logged in ten or more times??

2) How many members registered on this site have not come back in the last three months and have been members for 1 or more years and have 9 or less log in's ??

3) How many members registered on this site have less than 5 log in's and have been members for 1 or more years??

Not that I expect a response mind you But this data could be translated into some pretty realistic numbers as to the validity of the spammers.

Of course I am certain Jimmy and killer and roger and all the other brains involved already possess the knowledge they need

But data makes me curious is all.
all VERY good arguments.... those are all real stats i look at on my forum and the others I have administrated over the years. Most people like see that "total member count" and seeing a huge number there.. personally I like see that "users online" being high.

LOL yeah the one who claimed to be a "professional spammer".

The problem isn't mods, unless you put a ton of people with moderator privileges, its just the popularity of the forums. These forums come up pretty high on google rankings, some topics more than others but in a half-arsed advertisers mind, this is an easy place for them to try and get their word out.

luke89 Overall I think you guys are running a good forum. Try to get a question answered on MacRumors lol. Their all dicks about it, it takes a week for a response and 90% of the time people get bitched at for asking something that seemed obvious to the geeks answereing. Some of us have lives lol. But yeah this is a good forum and people are nice about answering stuff. The only really problem I remember was Kister haha he was weird. But ive only been here a few months. To answer the question about the mods it wouldnt hurt. It did take awhile to get rid of kister and that was a slight pain.

ban their IP's and their email address endings. Most of those spammers that are posting here have stupid email address endings. Ban the endings in the admin panel.
