It will also prevent you receiving the other 99.9% of emails from that sub-forum which are not spam

I am now getting email bombed in Linux and Unix forum - i have already unfollowed another forum where this was happening and have been assured that the moderators know about it- so- temporarily at least, I am going to unfollow this forum as well until BC puts an end to this, The Bomb is all in Chinese characters with an occasional word inserted- I hope this gets sorted out soon!!

No problem- I was just wondering if anyone else was having this issue- and apparently they are--

There was a Spammer from India on the 9th, in pcpunk's USB stick Topic, whom I brought to Animal's attention asap.

 

Two Moderators worked on & cleared the offender. Don't know if they're related (the spammer had three links in his/her Post).

 

Hope all is clear now for you both.

Yeah- No problems after that! Probably some kid with enough knowledge to be a nuisance to everyone on BC!
