Nice work. At least they are going to the queue. None are getting through, right?

The ones I just banned weren't in the queue as is the case for most all of them. I'm catching them before they make their first post, which won't show up in the queue. I screen them in the Newest Members list by checking their IP addresses.

You make me look bad. I don't do any of that. Don't buy that Tesla and leave us any time soon.

We're screwed when TinMan gets a different car.

It may be the case of if you can't beat them, join them. So I may just have to start spamming this site along with the Pakistan car dealers.

No interest in the Plaid+, in fact, I probably won't get a Plaid either. The long range base model will still blow the doors off a Q50. No $10k full self-driving bullshit option either. I figure 670 HP and a 3.1 sec 0-60 mph is adequate for my needs.
Does it even take 3.1 seconds to get from one end of Newport to the other?

It's a little over 11 miles from the southern end of the Newport city limits to the northern end, following Hwy 101. Might take a bit longer than 3.1 seconds.

This.

Or ask the site admin to block accounts based on Regions/IP Ranges, most systems allow for geographic blocking (N.Korean, China , Russia etc.) as most of the
bots and spam come out of those regions.

We do that with our spam filters and some external facing services.

HA HA HA! Site admins. What a joke. We rarely see ours show up and he doesn't respond to messages. I heard VerticalScope is working on the problem but as far as I can tell, we are on our own. Pakistan and India are the main source of the spam, unless they are using VPNs and originate from elsewhere.

Ah lame, doubt you have enough control to even block IP/MAC Addresses as well. :(

Yeah, it's like trying to stop a tidal wave with a teacup. I'm not concerned so much about bots signing up here as they usually don't do anything but it's the scammers who come in and try to bilk members on sales that I'm trying to weed out.

Best way to fight this is to never buy or sell anything here without buyer's protection.

^This. Always wear your rubbers when going out in the rain!

That's an old world reference for galoshes... ;)
