    Has anyone else...

    ...been spamed by "orlandom" in the photo gallery"? He's attached himself to all 9 of my photos. Since he joined up in November, and already has over 12000 posts, I'm guessing "spambot"...either that, or he has the World's Fastest Fingers.

    How do we get rid of him?

    Yes all my pictures too. I reported him 2 times already but no one of the admins does something about it!

    They should just ban him or delete his profile! It's been going for more than a week!

    How did you report him. I have never received any notice regarding spammers from you.

    One time I reported through contact us and one time through his profile.

    I have no idea why it never came to you but I am glad you banned him. He posted over 3,500 comments on my pictures

    Going through his profile would not do it. I have deleted a few posts but I cannot due a large deletion. I will ask Adam to do what he can. In the future PM a mod directly. It would be easier to do with a few posts than 1,300+.

    I would like to give him a fast finger.

    He hit my gallery as well. I am not sure if I could delete his comments because I am a mod or because it was my gallery. I did not have to enter my password to complete the edit which is what made me think others might be able to do it.

    Under one of the comments for me there is an edit link to click on and that will let you delete the comment. It looks similar to the edit button if you wanted to edit one of your posts.

    If this works you can remove them from your gallery.I am still looking for a way to mass delete the posts.

    Just sayin', but there is undoubtedly a way for your DBA to mass delete those posts and comments from the AR database.

    I am afraid this will take an Admin with more access than a Mod.

    Got spammed too, but am educated on buying women's shoes/boots now. Inspired me to clean up my gallery. Every pic I post, even on off topic board, goes to my gallery. I need to change that feature. Anyhow, made it through 4 or 5 pages and got tired. Will try again later.

    I had to get IT to take out the whole series of post in the db. Wasn't too hard but not within the standard tool set of vB.
