I’m eating lamb casserole @NiteWotcha

zigzagbetty Thu 09-Jul-20 03:28:58

Reported a few then realised everywhere, what a job angry

ArriettyJones Thu 09-Jul-20 03:29:16

Sorry- all thumbs.

I’m eating lamb casserole, do you want some? Keep your strength up?

Boomclaps Thu 09-Jul-20 03:31:06

It’s incessant

NiteWotcha Thu 09-Jul-20 03:32:04

just to say, I can't get them all, so will concentrate on sensitive boards like Conception, Mental Health, FWR etc.

will leave the S&B and others as I'm sure people there will cope wink

Is it possible because we allow new registrations overnight? Just wondering if it was worth highlighting that this is going to ramp up for a while now...

Will continue to report any others that I see.

EineKleineNachtwatcher Thu 09-Jul-20 03:39:58

I'm hiding them too

ArriettyJones Thu 09-Jul-20 03:40:59

It’s so many. sad

Isn’t there any kind of tech to filter them out for you?

NiteWotcha Thu 09-Jul-20 03:41:44

Do you guys want links?

Do you guys want links?

yes please - I am kind of systematically going through the boards but links are always helpful flowers

NiteWotcha Thu 09-Jul-20 03:56:37

interesting!
I just found one of the spambot's messages written in German on the Relationships board!

I would have a word with your database team. Technically it should be possible to do a scan and block for username =xyz across all boards / topics etc. Step one is to block them of course. I would also ask the tech team about adding blocks for links to other websites - basically when someone adds a link, the technology checks that it's not a link to a dodgy site - this isn't foolproof by any means but it's a start. Thirdly, I'd ask them to look for heuristic behaviour - plenty of database algorithms for this - which basically query a user who posts across many boards in quick succession or whose OP is a one line post and a web link. Again, not an exact science but it would flag all of the crap from tonight's scammer.

thanks for the info, @weathervane1 flowers

the Night Watch only have limited powers - but MNHQ will do a thorough sweep and search in the morning.

EineKleineNachtwatcher Thu 09-Jul-20 04:06:05

Thanks weathervane. We Nightwatchers on not on the staff, we're volunteers but I've flagged your message for MNHQ.

EineKleineNachtwatcher Thu 09-Jul-20 04:06:57

We speak as one Wotcha grin
