TiPO Spam filtering.

    Well, my previous post about this didn’t seem to get much attention, so I’ll post it as a new topic. Just pointing something out here.

    There doesn’t seem to be much spam filtering in the iPod Observer Forums. 
    Some spam threads have been there untouched for a few months, and a few inapropriate posts as well.

    TiPO doesn’t seem to have any mods to take care of it, either.


    That’s all.

    Have a nice day!

    “MILK’s New Album is now out worldwide on iTunes!
    As seen in Rolling Stone Magazine, MILK new album was
    produced in Los Angeles and Liverpool by Fran
    Ashcroft (Gorillaz, Dandy Warhols, Damon Albarn).
    Watch Milk new video at ***
    MILK on iTunes!

    Their mission is to lead a new trend of “New
    Alternative Psychedelia”, combining the aesthetics
    of trippy hippie bands with a post-grunge appeal
    and a “forward thinking” vision. 
    MILK are an alternative psychedelic experience from
    the USA and I see people over there in their home town
    of Los Angeles are talking about “trip-pop” and
    “new-alternative psychedelia”.
    MILK is good for you- that is if you like
    fuzzed-out, trippy guitar rock that simmers, boils
    and frequently explodes. “

    It just seems like the same person responding to himself type of thread.

    Actually, if you had read the first post, I think that you may have figured it out.

    Anyway, back to topic:

    This thread (an old one) in the News Zone has been spammed.

    I like what the spammer wrote as his send-ya-off-teh-hot-spam-scent decoy:

    [quote author=“Some spammer”]So sorry for the time I missed in my life not reading books.

    I guess that’s why he ended up being a worthless spammer.

    Ack! Spam attack (identical to the ones we’ve been seeing in the past few months). And another (This one is new, promoting some vietnamese sites that don’t even exist). And yet another , though this one is an exact copy of the second one.
