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?
Same-o for me, just started last week I think. 2-5 a day, all gmail with lots of periods and foreign sounding names. Was at first declining, then started suspending for spam.
idem moi aussi des adresse pareil propose leur mail a tout mes membres enfin ce qu'il en reste mon resau a presque plus personne je pense fermer mon reseau je n'ai plus de monde gros bisous a toi mon amie
Mine is for depression solutions and pills... mine has emails like everybody's: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have one now that, when I click on the *1 member awaiting approval* it takes me directly to the Member Management page..........so I cannot respond to deny or suspend as spam. Putting in a ticket on this one
Yup, I got a couple of them on http://onespiritart.com They tried to post blogs but I have them set for approval because of the contest so they didn't get far. I better go check today.
i also have the same problem :(
ATTENTION: This is no only spam attack: Yesterday several members warned that "the site was infected with virus". One member told me he had prevented Avast Antivirus enter the site. Apparently blogs are publishing advertising but IMPORTANT: Apparently being published malicious code (viruses). I deleted all these blogs and material of these happy members. This is a link of Avast Antivirus:
This is a mails of some spammers:
Important: remove all material from these malicious users and reassure members from experience because I have seen the alarm spreads like wildfire.
My blogs must be approved, so I don't have that problem. I also approve all members, so no spammers can enter my site.
The last week I have declined membership for 2-3 spammers a day. Getting sick of declining so I will approve and then suspend for spam immediately as has been suggested. All have gmail addresses with n.n.n.n.n.nn@gmail addresses
PS suspend for spam removes their content too so it protects from them a little
You do not have to approve them. You can Banned as Spammers
