    Spam Accounts

    How do y'all deal with spam accounts? I do not mean users who create multiple accounts after getting banned but accounts created for no other reason than advertising, etc.? I notice you get quite a few.

    We use at tracker find their ips
    then find their locations
    then we find their homes
    then we spray them with silly string.

    Once those pesky IPs are sorted, I take out the spammers family,and kick their dog. We usually don't get repeat customers. Well, there was this one time a spammer named Hans Gruber signed up. Went to his nice place and threw him of the nakatomi towers.

    Long story short. His brother shows And spams the hell out of this place.

    You could make a movie out of the carnage from that little episode.

    Ok, I really just wanted to know why so many of my accounts keep getting shut down and why this guy has been camped out in my front yard for so long.

    It seems to me like you need something more aggressive like ringing their doorbell after lighting a bag of dog poo on fire.

    We make them go POOF!

    We rely on members to report them because they can be very tricky.

    Then we make them go POOF!

    POOF? Is that some form of flatulence?
