What account setting is allowing spam from new users?

Posted by outthere, Jun 2.

This is getting out of hand. first Michele Feeney and now TTWINE. Not allowing replies to the threads and not coming up for moderation as new uses/posters. What's up with that? Extremely annoying!

This is far and away the worst I've ever seen. I'm counting 15 spam postings in a row from TTWine right now. This is almost analogous to a server spamming hack aiming at denial of service since they're hogging the whole first page...

 

Where are the Snooth IT staff???

I sent GDP a PM about it, too.

 

Now trying to bump them all off the first page...

Thanks, DM.

I don't have a problem with somebody posting a note that they have some wine-oriented product or service.  I am the guy who approved the one about the Hungarian wine conference or whatever it was.  As long as the posting seems to be respectful and there is a reasonable chance that somebody might be interested, I'm OK with it.  If any of my respected Snooth colleagues disagree with my philosophy, please let me know.  If I am not looking at this correctly, I can change.  There is no doubt that TTWine was abusive and deserved to be booted.

My position is moderate - I would argue that if it is simply a straight-up ad, with no intent to engage snoothers or contribute to conversation , then it has no place on the forum. If it satisfies the latter two criteria then I think it is permissible. 

The TTWine thing truly did look so awful. And why so many?! Wouldn't you assume that such aggression would just defeat the purpose? Ugh.

Hi folks, 

 

iI think this is partly my fault for otolicing the forums more vigilantly. I travel so much, in Spain right now, that it can be a problem. Feel free to DM with your concerns and I'll do m y best to keep this place clean and worry free.  Seriously, thanks for any and all help on that front.

Greg, good to hear from you. Any good wines in Spain (of course)? Understand well how snowed under you can get--even in the summertime!  ;-)

Is anyone besides you from Snooth ops/mgmnt able to visit on occasion? Would be good to get responses to site feedback threads, at least.

I'm n Carignena and only day one so no good wine yet. ;-). I'll see about gettingMoëte of a presence here but ultimately it should be me. I just confirmed the deletes of the offenders, andill make it a point to be here more often to help police the joint!  Thanks for your help. As I've already said, glad to see you back.

Just posted this in the other thread... But to close the loop...

Hi all - I can explain what has been happening. We have a new platform for adding offers for experiences and products and we're really excited to share that in the coming weeks. 

Those offers are going to be cross posted into the forum here for discussion, but they are NOT supposed to be showing on the main list of forum threads. They'll be in a separate forum category and hidden from view unless you click into their category.

tldr: we'll fix this bug so they don't show in the main forum any more. Hope that wasn't too traumatic for you all.

Please do reach out with any comments. I'm not commonly in the forum as there is a ton going on these days, but I'm always a few clicks away if you have thoughts or want to bring anything to my attention.

And as I said in the other thread, Mark, good to see you back!

Greg, thanks for the kind words, and for getting things sorted. Do hope you can make it to these boards more frequently.

Cheers
