So as I’m sure most of you already know, a wave of dirty little
spammers has recently overrun our beloved GI Online. I’ll be trying to
read about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim or the COD: Black Ops’ First Strike DLC
and I’ll come across something like this:
“Hello. My friend
Dedicated service, the new style, so you feel like a warm
WE ACCEPT PYAPAL PAYMENT
YOU MUST NOT MISS IT!!!
Believe you will love it.
happy good website
That’s a message from GI user yhyh26.
It's one of many similar messages I’ve seem on this site in the past few weeks.
And let me tell ya, I’m getting quite sick of it…
MESSAGE TO ALL SPAMMERS: Listen
spammers, I don’t want to feel like “a warm autumn!!!”(whatever the hell that
means)… What I do want, is to read about video games without being interrupted
by your stupid spammy broken English… No one is gonna buy anything from your
crappy website. So just GO AWAY!!!
MESSAGE TO ALL RESPECTABLE GI MEMBERS: Whenever
you see a spammy message, don’t ignore it. TAKE ACTION! Follow the link to the
spammers profile page, click the box that says Report User, and report the
spammy basterd. Or send a mod or a GI staff member a message with your complaint, along with
a link to the offenders profile page.
I’ve begun compiling a list of offenders:
Please join me in reporting these dirty rotten spammers. Also,
feel free to add more offenders you come across in the comments section.
Note: A lot of these profile names are very similar. Maybe it’s
the same guy… I don’t really know much about spamming…
