We've been hit 6 or 7 times by spammers from China that use 4 sequential letters from the English (Latin) alphabet plus some numbers.
They have been banned and they and any of their posts deleted. Most have not had a chance to post anything and some had not even confirmed their membership before they were dumped.
Members play an important role in reporting spam and are often our first line of defense. In the lower right corner of all posts is an icon to click to report spam or an objectionable post
. Simply click the icon and in the drop down you can choose what kind of post it is. Submitting it sends a report to the staff.
By having the 15 most recent posts at the top of the front page of Gimp Chat, spammers get foiled because they can't escape being seen as soon as they post, but sometimes their spam gets buried by another post after their posts.
Any help is gratefully received and appreciated. Thank you.
Here are some of them that got dumped. There are also other spammers not of the alphabetical group.
