spam message

I received an email that was addressed from Forest River Forum and it was all in Japanese. When I did a translation it was a bunch of gibberish. Just letting other member know show they will be aware of the situation.

Yesterday early EST morning I noticed a JeffreyJoit (Georgia) posting on several different topics (on forestriverforums) in a foreign language...possibly Russian or Slovic...not sure if anyone else noticed it?

spam message

Blubear, JeffreyJoit was a spammer we (credit goes to bikendan ) banned early yesterday so shouldn't be a problem anymore. Thanks for mentioning it, though, as that kind of thing is helpful.

If you ever see another one of those posts, just press the little red triangle button (if in a browser) or the flag icon (if on the app) and the mods all get a headsup.

Caper, I've made the team aware of your email spammer.

I haven't gotten any email spam that I am aware of, but I did see that spammer on the board yesterday. Triguy, is there a limit in place what a new person can post? I remember previous spammers went to town with at least 100 posts.

I'd have to check with Janet about the limits, ChooChooMan. The one you recall was a real hassle. I believe its was Herk who spent a morning cleaning that up. That spammer was fast and furious. Luckily, his type is rare.

the JeffreyJoit spammer had at least 70 posts the other night.

most of us use the PM system for messages but i've never used the email message choice.
could Caper have used it and it was hijacked by someone?
