Went in and cleared the moderation queue. A number of spam threads in the General section have been deleted and their accounts purged. Thank you everyone who made reports, feel free to message me directly if you see any other problems.

Gave a new user a 3-day ban and deleted their thread for being an (obvious & poor) attempt at trolling.

Still learning the xenforo mod tools, so everybody be warned that my moderation will be especially arbitrary and capricious for a while!

There's an open report 'cuz the Hare Krishna spammer showed up again, but the thread is gone now. Did somebody else handle it, or did my favorite lunatic delete it himself? I'm leaving the report open for now, until that gets figured out.

At least twice over the past week, our anti-spam has flagged 5 accounts. I'm too lazy to dig into who they were, but they were all new registrations and am just mentioning it here in case we hear of someone unable to register.

For that matter, any more spam-detected new accounts show up, I'm just going to reject them without reason.

Whenever new registers are caught in the filter, I've been denying but with a message letting 'em know they can appeal; basically all the time they're those weird obviously-procedural names, so it hasn't come up because no one's appealed, but heads up I guess.

Cleaned out some more spam registrations .. though one of them felt like it might be an actual person (the account didn't have too many spam matches, just 15+ IP matches). I approved that one. Hope it doesn't come to bite me in the rear..

rouses

smashes spam accounts belonging to Stazr_official and lindapet

If real people want to use TFF as a place to promote their works I welcome them. If they want to use it as a SEO dumping ground they can take a hike. Please let me know when both kinds of people are here, I'd like to welcome the former and feed the latter to the void.

Spammers obliterated, sadly I did not catch their name, only their post.

I'm marking off the reports about the fellow as resolved.

Also marking Keithmer as a spammer and banning the account.

Post Edit: There are 58 users in the approval queue. Am going to be lazy and just mark them all off as spammers.

Just rejected 5 folks from the approval queue with an email score > 10. (Am going to presume it means more than 10 other StopForumSpam users reported them as spam)

1 user was rejected because his IP was flagged > 40 times.

These 3 are being approved because all they have is are blacklisted emails with a < 10 count. Am hoping not to regret this decision;

Just perma-banned a user named Clairquesy . This account just posted a lot of junk in one of our general threads. I was really unhappy to discover that the new content was spam, as opposed to an interesting discussion.

Thank you for the reports folks!

Oh bother. There's a lot of clean up today. Let's see,

https://thefanfictionforum.net/xenforo/index.php?members/astao301.21746/ <- banned for making a thread about furniture from China
https://thefanfictionforum.net/xenforo/index.php?members/astao302.21748/ <- attempting to sell machine parts

I just discovered that our forum has a 'spam' tool which is triggered on a user. What it does is go over all that user's posts, messages .. etc, marks it as spam and bans the user. A very nice one-click utility!

EDIT: Sweet! It even closes out any connected reports.

To those who submitted the reports - Thank you!

A user by the name of "Lightning Spear" PM'd me and asked to delete his/her account. As far as I can tell the user had no postings or threads they participated in, so I'm doing what they asked for and am deleting the account.
