Spam ...

Postby jwocky » Mon Sep 21, 2015 6:16 pm

Hi,

I had for the first time to delete a post because someone spammed something like Russian Teen Porn on our board. Actually, I am not sure, whether the user account from which that happened was hacked, so I will see, what happens next before I ban a user name, but hey, it's worth to notice, there are some things, that can even here lead to a ban!

yup. I cleaned the post.
spam is not speech. And pornography already uses a large percentage of the world wide bandwidth. No need to spread it anylonger.

Spam should really be changed to "Scam." And IAHM-COL's comment about porn is spot on. JWocky is right, there are a specific cases that can lead to a ban because they are not related to the stated goals of Free Flight Free Speech and they are generally exploitive in their intent. In particular, posts from spammers and porn are attempting to get readers of our Forum to spend money. Spammers are well known to be just scams to steal money. There is no way to verify that a porn solicitor is not using women against their will to make their videos.

Ok. again similar post by Georger with a different post title. I removed the post. Banned the username.
It is clearly not a person.
