ActiveRain Real Estate Network Community Site-Attacks By Spammers Comments, yesterday morning of Saturday 31 July 2010 I roded over to visit one of my many good friends blog here in the ActiveRain Real Estate Network community members. The first blog post that came up on my friend's blog page had two spammer comments left on it. So I went down to the lower right hand corner of the comment box the spammer left, to click on the red report a concern link that pops up there, to let the ActiveRain satff know about the spammer comments.
Then I thought maybe I should check some of the other blog posts that my friend had posted. Will I dicovered a total of 49 spammer comments that had been left on blog posts of my friend, those comments had been left on the 27th and 30th of July 2010. So I reported each of them to AR! One of the really bad things about these spammer comments that are left on our blog posts, is the fact that they have links in them. Some of those link folks should not and really don't want to go to visit.
ActiveRain Real Estate Network Community Site-Attacks By Spammers Comments, last year I received many such spammer comments. And after I lot over 4000 points from the total of hard worked for ActiveRain blogging points. All because of the so called anti spam checking program that the ActiveRain Real Estate Network uses or was using, punished me because of those spammer comments had been left on blog posts posted to my ActiveRain Real Estate Network blog. Even though I had not done any thing wrong.
After that happen, I posted notice on my ActiveRain Real Estate Network profile page a note to the general public that stopes by my blog to read and visit for a spill. Plus I disabled the allow-non-member comments on my blog posts.
The notice that I added to my profile page reads as follow's:
16 July 2009 Update
An important notice to the general pulic: I have for the time being set my blog posts where Non-Members of the ActiveRain community, cannot leave comments on them. Our blogging community is under attack by Spammers. I am truly sorry to have to take this action for the time being!
Pleases do keep visiting and reading my blog posts!
Thank you, for being understanding about this action that I've taken.
This action has also been taken for your safety!
ActiveRain Real Estate Network Community Site-Attacks By Spammers Comments, even though I like the uodates that the ActiveRain staff has been doing to the ActiveRain Real Estate Network community blog site. Like the new and very Professional looking main pages for our States, the Leaderboard, and last year when the staff of ActiveRain come up with the idea of us being able to have a automatic signature box. So we can have information added to the bottom of our blog posts automaticlly, with out haven to write it everytime we post to out blog and the groups in the community. And being able to have a High Definition profile photo. These are all fine things the staff of the ActiveRain Real Estate Network have cane up with for the members of their blogging community site. I for one do appreciate those updates. And lets not forget about the RainCamps that the ActiveRain staff goes around to parts of the Country to put on.
But maybe the ActiveRain Real Estate Network staff, should be working on the problem of the Attacks By Spammer Comments going on in the community a lot hardder. One thing there just is no real reason for the genaral public to needs or to be able to add a link with in a comment they have left on one of our blog posts. I know for a fact that can be stoped, the reason I know it can. Is because a few years ago, when I had my own computer consulting service, and did a lot of on line security work for my clients, I wrote a program for them to use, that disabled that can of thing being done to them.
So what do you say Bob and Brad, will y'all get on boad and and have the ActiveRain Real Estate Network programing staff actually put in security to stop the Attacks By Spammers Comments having links in them?
Have a good one
