Gibberish/Gobledgook/Inappropriate

New postby John Arrowood » Wed Aug 12, 2015 8:15 pm

When I signed on this morning, there were a few postings in various lists that were all from the same source and appeared to be texts of news articles and other post of questionable connection to the area in which they appeared. There were some links included in the postings. I did not click on any of them and am hoping that no one else did. I can't find the postings now so I assume some caught them and deleted. The links may have been entirely above board but since they had nothing to do with horology I was afraid they were links to viruses, Trojan horses, and other malware. Thanks very much to whoever deleted them. I neglected to make a note of the poster's name.

John:

It appears that Glyn took care of all of those posts that were obviously done by some sort of spammer and has changed the process of registration now, or so I believe.

Some folks are just sick.

Hi, folks,

Just as Marty noted. Also, until I can be certain that there's no other way for spammers to get a hold on parts of our MB, there will be no further sending out of e-mails from the board. This means that you will not get notifications of new posts and will not be able to e-mail other members through the board e-mailer.

If you need a new password, or other function notified by e-mail, please contact me at webmaster@global-horology.com

I hope this measure does not inconvenience our members too much. We have an internal PM system and I know that most of our regulars know each others' e-mail addresses.

I urge all our users and members to visit GH regularly and check the latest posts.

Many thanks for your understanding and support.
