Spam again, and "internal server error" message

Postby dmcff » 20 May 2018, 04:21

Hi, I've noticed a high volume of spam in the forum again recently. Am wondering if others are aware of this - I know that Fissurefrustration and patience_and_healing are, and that Fissurefrustration has been making efforts to clear some of the spam and ban some IP's, but does the site owner (pinpin?) know that all this is going on?

One problem has been actually getting into the threads - clicking on them usually produces an "internal server" error. This is the first time for a while that I've actually been able to make a new post.

I am very aware too, and wonder if it's because we read posts by "unread posts"? Whatever the reason though, I see that most of the spam from the last few days has been removed. I can't imagine how hard it is to fix this problem though, because if it was an easy fix, it would have been done by now.

Fingers crossed that it can eventually be fixed so that it doesn't happen again in the future.

And yes, I hope that pinpin knows, because he/she'd be the only one who could make changes to the registration protocols.

The problems seem to be fixed now. At least, I'm able to post here. Many thanks are due to whoever undertook the laborious task of removing the spam - I tried to help, but found that my efforts were frustrated by the inability to get into the threads at all.

I wonder if there's a way these spam attacks could be prevented in future?
