I keep seeing these 'make money' and 'sports stuff' blogs popping up on Tripawds from time to time. What's the deal with that? We are all dealing with such emotional issues here with our dogs and their lives… these people just get me so mad! Mad Can anyone get a Tripawds blog without registering with you first? AAARRRRHHH!!!! Yell

I've just been feeling so sad and mad these days… and these stupid insensitive people are just bringing out the worst in me…Frown Is there any way of tracking them down and crashing their computers??!! Twisted

Sorry, I just  had to vent…Ugh

Angel Jake's Mom

Jake, 10yr old golden retriever (fractured his front right leg on 9/1, bone biopsy revealed osteosarcoma on 9/10, amputation on 9/17) and his family Marguerite, Jacques and Wolfie, 5yr old german shepherd and the newest addition to the family, Nala, a 7mth old Bengal mix kittie. Jake lost his battle on 11/9/2009, almost 8 weeks after his surgery. We will never forget our sweet golden angel… ….. CANCER SUCKS!

I can't tell you how many hours a day I spend battling splogs. Spam blog registrations are a curse on any WordPress MU environment and I am doing my best to keep the scourge at bay. Can anyone register? Yes. That gives people in need immediate access to the forums, chat room and their blog. The only true way to stop sploggers is to disable registration and manually approve all requests. If we do that here, people suffer, and the spammers win.

I won't go into all the technical details of the efforts I have taken – and continue to take every day – to stop spam blog registrations here. None are usually live for more than a few hours. Deleting any that have been created is the first thing I do in the morning, the last thing I do at night, and tops my list of to-dos many times throughout the day. Today, I happened to go out for the day before checking in. I am sorry if any of these cursed expletives offended you, they sure do me. And you have perfect reason to vent. If I were to join you, however, I might miss a dozen or so splog registrations while venting.

Believe it or not, I just implemented tactics this week that cut the number of spam blogs down by at least 75% … yes, that much. And I am about to take even more severe steps. But I will not let them win. Yell

Stay tuned to my Behind the Scenes blog for complete details, once I ensure these new anti-spam blog steps I do take won't wreak havoc on any valid user accounts.

For now, all users can help by reporting any questionable blogs via email or PM. Though quite honestly, by that time I will likely have either already deleted it, or be asleep. Any potential new users should note that any username ending in four numerical digits will now be autmatically denied.

There. Now I have vented too. And yes, it does feel good. Now, back to smashing splogs! Twisted

We're getting lots of new new blog registrations lately, and when new bloggers don't post right away or participate in the forums it's sometimes hard to tell if we've got another splog on our hands. Some may be legitimate users who may just prefer to benefit from only researching the forums. Others are clearly spammers we need to deal with before they post five new ways to make money online.

All Tripawds members should feel free to report any questionable blogs with a reply to this topic. Thank you for your continued support.

Dashboard? Avatar? Why bother going back to school when a person can join tripawds (still won't believe this thing called a 'dashboard' exists until I sees it with mine own eyes).
