NFL  > General NFL  > FAN NATION SPAM ON THE OFFENSIVE
August 18, 2011, 05:27 PM
I think that we, as fans and posters, should put aside any animosity, disagreements, and whatever going on between us for awhile and concentrate on getting rid of these stupid **** spammers.

We are being attacked, people. By mamur, adbur, and rubel amongst many more that's coming. They are taking away our right to post, comment, and read any legal posts here with their garbage! I posted a legal board about the wildcat formation, and by the time it was published, it was already halfway down the page, because of the BS SPAM, about Portugal, Hungary and even some stupid tennis crap.

I do not read this garbage, or even understand it, because these idiots cannot speak English! We, together, as a group, can make a difference, if we want to. We can elect to fight this, or let it beat us. The mods don't give a ****, we already know this, and chances are, this board will be deleted shortly after, if it even gets published.

But, I'm going to try it anyway. I'm tired of the SPAM. I'm tired of trying to find a board I had been commenting on, or keeping up with. But, are you? If not, then do nothing. But, if you are, then let's do something.

There's a couple of things. Reporting them likely won't do any good, so we're left to do one of two things, or both. But, it might take a lot of people to keep these things cleared.

First, we can all start new posts, even if it's only a one word post. If you have several people making these, it will shove these damn spam SOB's back to page 2 and beyond. It might be an on going thing tho, because I have a feeling these spam things are computer generated.

Secondly, go to the legit posts and make a comment on several of them to "bump" them back to the front page, thus sending the spam downwards and onto the back pages. This is what we've been doing before.

The problem with starting a new post is much like I did yesterday. As soon as I submitted it to be published, and it showed, the spam just knocked it down midway on the page, and then finally on page 2. But, a continuous board posting, even if it's only one word, might help some, and maybe.......just maybe....get some lazy **** mod off his ****. Doubtful, but all we can do is try and see.

Then, we can report them for abuse. Likely won't do any good if the mods, or FN, is on the sly, being paid off by these spam ****. Just some ideas, and it might not work, but it's worth a shot. But, people are going to have to do something if they want their boards back. It's getting ridiculous if you ask me.

Try sending a message to SI which is responsible for the FN blog. Tell them how you feel concerning this unwarranted interruption. If enough people do that then maybe SI will put a stop to it.

I will do my part and BUMP as many legit posts when I am at this site, and bash Al while doing it!

That way you get to read the garbage threads I post, would not want those to get lost in the muck.

You already have 3 spamonlinecrapola threads in front of this one, in what 4 minutes?

Now they delete the great almighty Al comments, but you can post about soccer games in some foreign country that NO one cares about, that someone is actually making MONEY ON and we get censored.

Unreal.

You know its bad when your asked on the telephone to select 1 for English, 2 for Spanish....you select 1, then the person speaking to you can barely speak English...and you get absolutely nothing accomplished.
