Spammers and trolling

Recommended Posts

Be aware of Personal Messages that offer an email address for a part you have posted as wanted. This has occurred twice recently as clever users get past our selection process.

Most recently, a member reported a Message conversation with (now blocked) user "seitzxvx ." This clever user also copied and pasted a couple topics from existing content to appear legitimate. Another observant member noted this and the spammer was flagged (within twenty hours [edit: thanks to aware members!]).

Always be suspicious of a new member Messaging you links or email addresses.

Please click on the "Report" option of a topic, post, or message so that the Moderator and Admin can take action if necessary.

If you were reading, or replied to, the two recent threads "Owners manual 2002 Lemans" or "Fueling Issues", both of those topics and original post were copied and re-posted from prior content. When the (mis)user is blocked, their content is taken down.

Thanks, all of you, for being aware and diligent in protecting our site and community! :nerd:  :mg:  :thumbsup:
