Attack of the Spammers!

*WARNING*: This blog is not so much a blog as it is a complaint/rant/public service announcement…

 

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

===  http://www.*** ====

Dedicated service, the new style, so you feel like a warm autumn!!!

WE ACCEPT PYAPAL PAYMENT

YOU MUST NOT MISS IT!!!

thank you!!!

Believe you will love it.

happy good website

setgrfyt”

 

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:

 

yhyh26

yhyh63

mhe75abc

fha29abc

dhu49abc

thth96

gehu36abc

 

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…
