I've PM'ed PCGUY and MrCrowley.
MrCrowley deleted some, but that's futile.

Bet purplelin will post here.

I don't know what gets into some people, desperation maybe? I wonder if the clothing industry has started using pyramid schemes to entice sales persons to work harder, make desperation moves like purplelin is doing here... :roll:

As soon as PCGUY gets the PM's this guy will be history.

I've been working on getting his mail account cancelled from hotmail. Anyone else want to flag his hotmail account for abuse?

The real reason the guy blasted the site last night. Google

Unread postAuthor: Technician1002 » Wed Jun 02, 2010 7:07 pm

I did some research on why this type of abuse happens. The spam bomb last night was not even intended to sell us anything. He was hoping we ignored it and didn't delete it. The target of last night's spam blast is Google.

This was an attempt at boosting the website's search result rank. They want their site to appear high on a Google search for the keywords that was used in the posts. When Google indexes the web, the many links to the advertiser's web page shows the site as having many referrals, thus must be relevant and popular. They are hoping we lock and let the blast pass. The Google robot will see the many links. This was the real target of the spam blast of the forum last night.

The best way to fight back is to remove all links to the spam site. This defeats the purpose of the spam blast. Simply locking them to be archived and later indexed by Google is the goal. Let's defeat that by fighting back and neutering all the links he posted. If we leave the posts up with the links, we become a target for others to do the same thing. If we delete all the posts and alter the links to the real advertiser's site, our site becomes less usefull in their goal of getting high in pageranks.

This is not a compromised account. This is a guy getting paid to raise the Google ranking by posting all kinds of links on the web to the site. This was the work of a professional advertising campaign and not a bot or compromised account. This is how the guy makes a living. It is scum.

To see if it is working, try to buy sunglasses on Google in a couple of weeks. See if the junk site is in the top 50 hits. That is the intent.

Edit; I just looked his profile and checked the all posts by user .... and found many of his posts are still up with the link intact. This is the intent of the spam blast. Google will index Spudfiles and see the many rerferrals to his site and raise the rankings unless we neuter the links or delete them. So far, he has won.

PM'ing PG GUY to kill all his links or posts.

Good to see.

Isn't there a way to simultaneously delete every post associated with his account, or must it be done individually?

I imagine once his account is removed, so are his posts. Apart from that, I wouldn't have a clue haha. Earlier on, I deleted about 30 of his first posts, which had to be done individually by me until I gave up.

well if this forum is anything like my clans last phpBB2/phpnuke based forums, deleting the person will not delete the posts.

As far as I have seen most admin control panel's give options on how to ban some one and to delete all or leave banned members post.
