Re: User Accounts With No Activity Get Deleted

Well, when you're getting upwards of 600 of these everyday, you better have a good way to deal with them or you'll get buried. Just look at the stats on the forum homepage. 468,814 Spammers Denied Registration since implementing GlowHost. My role as the admin is to keep the site content free from those that would try and use it for ulterior purposes. If these spam registrations make it through, they get indexed by search engines to increase their exposure. They're more of a nuisance and time waster than anything else.

Re: User Accounts With No Activity Get Deleted

For an example of some spammers efforts at trying to get Beesource to link to their pages, click the link below to see the results of using the Beesource Search (on the home page) for "puma shoes":

http://www.beesource.com/search-res...cof=FORID:11&ie=UTF-8&q=puma+shoes+&sa=Search

Note that the 4 links in the [HIGHLIGHT]highlighted box [/HIGHLIGHT] are legitimate ad links, but the hundreds of links below the highlighted box that start with "www.beesource.com/forums " are spam links. They don't actually link anywhere at this time, but the spammers certainly tried hard. :eek:

When I first found some of the "puma shoes" links by accident, I was searching for something else but some of the puma links showed up in the search results as well. I then tried a direct search and was amazed at all those links.

Fortunately with GlowHost now, almost all of these registrations get deleted at the point of registration rather than after they actually get a legitimate registration.
