Holy Spamoli, Batman! What's with the SPAM?

Postby AllThingsKC » Mon Jul 09, 2012 7:26 am

I'm not complaining, but since KC Rag is the worst site in history, it makes every Kansas Citian look like a racist, bigot, redneck, child-molesting, puppy-eating, baby-killer to the rest of the world.

It seems like there's been way more "spam bots" starting new threads in recent months than I remember happening ever before. Is that accurate?

Is it possible to block them from starting new threads or is the only way to do that too costly and complicated? Just thought I ask.

Until it gets fixed, I DEMAND A FULL REFUND FOR MY KC RAG MEMBERSHIP!

Darn it, KC Rag. I wish I knew how to quit you.

I haven't found a reliable method, although I haven't looked REAL hard, because they're so easy to just delete and our members are good about reporting them.

What is the deal with the shoe postings? They don't even have links on them, so it's not to drive traffic to a website. Can someone who understands the interwebs explain to me what the incessant shoe spamming is about?

Well, it looks like we just been blitzkreiged by the Empire of Spam, with General KC being hit hardest (Megan Fox pussy... seriously?).

We got slammed with spam last night. Not sure why. I have deleted all the threads and banned the users, but if you see one I missed, let me or one of the other mods know.

I don't want to seem prejudiced, but I'm pretty sure that Russian thread is spam. Just saying.

I'm sorry, do you guys want to lean more about Dr. Dre beats? I have been deleting those posts, but perhaps you guys want to learn more.

I would like to see how the lack of solid shoe information impacts the election. I'm sadden to see that neither candidate has discussed the lack of shoe information crisis.

Forgoing info about Dr. Dre or queries about shoes, I'd guess I will have to settle with nigh-incomprehensible posts about hair straighteners.
