We just discovered another - with embedded links to a line of OBD scanners from Japan. Bye bye !
EDIT: At 0835 - another spammer in the Lounge, this time from India - a blurb about watching videos. Gonzo.

There has been a rash of spam from central India - near New Delhi. A new subscriber, usually with some gibberish username, logs in to one of several forums and posts a long, rambling, unintelligible blurb on nothing - but it has a slew of embedded links to so-called movies and videos. BE CAREFUL - they're all malware links.
Keep your eyes open and report them quickly. The last phony username (banned) was ndanityana and it stayed logged in for quite a while until it figured out it was banned forever.

0915 this morning - another spammer - with the same "watch this online" embedded links and gibberish, rambling post. Gone.
This one was "chitvipas" from near Calcutta, India.
...another spam...who or what ever this might be...
...some kind of....russian?
Gone forever at 0802. Thanks. This particular jerk was from SoCal.
This post and the one after it.
Gone forever. Good catch. It was from east Europe.
Ranger got it a few minutes ago ........... it tried to log in again so I changed the ban to permanent.
Same clown - or group of clowns - in or near New Delhi.
Keep your eyes open and Thanks !!! (Post #110)

I was wondering what happened with this thread. Glad to see it at the top of the homepage or whatever you wanna call it. Also glad to see so many members doing their due diligence and reporting these spammers.
"What happened" was that the number of idiots and clowns who want to use CF for their personal billboard and advertising page has increased remarkably. Success has its pitfalls, so we placed the spam reporter in a conspicuous place for all to see - and use.
The average time from a jackass posting spam and the time it's gone and he's banned forever is now down to less than 2 hours - in many cases less than a half hour.
Again, thanks to the members who take their time to help keep the site clean and fun to use.
