Hello, Dave. There's this guy named albertlisy90 who has been advertising with numerous threads on my Spotlight weekly quotes. I delete them as fast as I find them, but it's getting really annoying. Every few days there are a few more. Like this one.

Thumb of 2020-01-04/nap/0ea5bd

Last week I C-mailed him and asked him to stop. I told him I will keep deleting his posts before anyone can see them, but that if he continues to do it I will report him to administration and have his account deleted. Today there are 3 ot 4 more.

So is there any possibility you would do that for me? Please?

It's just not nice.

Nancy, go into the control panel and under Groups and Users Control Panel you can ban this pest. It will not keep them from coming back with a new user name, but you can keep blocking new problems as they arise.

Thanks again! I squashed that bug! Let's see how he is going to resurface.

I guess the reason he is preying on my quotes is because he sees the articles on the homepage, and found out how to start a thread.

I just saw one under I think it was computer questions and answers and it was totally inappropriate. Escort services, a naked lady *Blush* I clicked out of it and when I went back to make sure where it was to report it, I couldn't even access it so maybe Dave deleted it all. It was disgusting Crying

At a glance, it looks like that entire cubit (Computer Q & A) is potentially loaded with spam. I didn't really want to look but maybe Dave should consider looking into its validity. Shrug!

Vic, did you notify Dave about this? He might want to know and may even want to consider deleting that cubit (Computer Q & A) since the owner has apparently abandoned it. Shrug!

There do not appear to be any valid posts to the computer cubit in a very long time. Since the owner seems to have abandoned it and no one else can clean it up. I removed it as one of my watched cubits but it does still appear under new posts on my home page. Shrug! Unless management here removes the cubit there is nothing else that can be done about it. Our only option is to learn not to click on it to view any new posts when they appear on the home page.

That cubit hasn't had a legitimate post in almost 10 years and the owner looks like it has long since abandoned it. I've disabled the cubit altogether.
