NC for Hire

I rarely complain about having to decline spammer accounts on Ning Networks. It is what it is. But wow, this is crazy. I can barely keep up with this new influx of spammer accounts applying for Ning Networks. I receive at least 2 every hour from several Networks. They all have something about Hairstyle Promos. Anyone else?

Ning, anything we can do about this?

Thanks,
Jen

      Oops, sorry. I searched for spammers, for some reason didn't find yours. Hopefully Eric will delete this discussion. =)

  • Yes I also encountered this one. Yesterday I suspended two accounts and today, there are two accounts wanting to join. It's all about hair styling, but when you click their profile... There are so many external links to different sites... real spammers.

    If we can only prevent members to write or create external links.. that will be better.
  • i am having same problem

  • Around 20 on both of my networks in last 48 h

  • same list here

  • Our site name is OurSalon.ning.com. ,which has nothing to do with that type of salon.

    I thought they were just clever spammers with the hairdo names trying to sneak in under the wall....   a few a day for the last few days..yup.
