Hi all

Just to let you know, we're doing our very very best to boot these opportunists off site as quickly as we find them.

It's messy and very busy, so please do bear with us. We're inundated, as you've probably seen.

We're really sorry for the inconvenience and do continue to report.

There's been another mass spamming by a poster called Jannetra17.

"Jannetra17" seems to like posting on EVERY SINGLE THREAD!!!

grin

Can you work your magic @MumsnetAdmin and see what you can do here please?

VettiyaIruken Mon 10-May-21 11:36:53

You're doing your best. They're relentless!
I don't know how many clicks they think they're going to get from mumsnet. Talk about poor choice of audience. 🙄

There's obviously a loophole that they've managed to exploit as the same poster has managed to post on dozens of threads simultaneously.

Can extra levels of security be put in place when new posters register, like additional verification or a restriction on the number of posts they can make for the first 24 hours?

Thanks to everyone who reported today's dodgy spammer - we're so sorry that these offensive posts appeared on so many threads.

Please be assured we're doing everything we can to prevent further disruptions.

Toilenstripes Tue 11-May-21 02:36:59

Oddbutnotodd Tue 11-May-21 02:37:47

Just about to report Ollinica on several threads

unwuthering Tue 11-May-21 02:41:00

The entire active threads page is now latest by Ollinisca... Ugh.

Susannahmoody Tue 11-May-21 02:42:41

Don't they have reruns to watch or something

Hi we're just deleting a bunch of those messages. Sorry this has happened again. We will "Take Steps" TM (c) etc. Does anyone still say TSSDNCOP or is that 20 years out of date? I very old.

ilovesooty Tue 11-May-21 02:51:26

Just reported again too.

ARoseByAnyOtherNameIsStillAs Tue 11-May-21 02:53:32

Why can't you ban them and block their iP addresses?

Hi Tech!

Are you on it wholesale, or should the Night Watch keep on hiding those posts?

NiteWotcha Tue 11-May-21 02:58:25

we still say TSSDNCOP but whatever procedure you're using, its crap!!

I'm not an expert but I think they can find ways round that.

StevenTechFromTimesPast Tue 11-May-21 02:59:28

Hi, NiteWotcha, we have a script running to find and delete them. Give it a few minutes and they should be gone. So no need to hide for now I'd say.
