So... I've let the moderators and Kent know about the problem. They have an assumed 10 accounts which are all from Russia. We should be able to ban them because of the link to pornography in their signature line. (No I DIDN'T click on it) i have started a topic in the club business. Sad that we have been attacked by these spammers. There needs to be stricter rules about the registration and how they can join.

What's with these two forums, afraid to open for fear of some type of virus ?

id="quote">Lloyd... They are safe to open but DO NOT CLICK ON ANYTHING.

The spammers like to create false accounts to they can phish in our pool. The mods zap the posts, accounts and lock out the IP addresses. It's amazing though, because folks can't resist the temptation to peek when these guys post in the site.

Once you start receiving 'email' from members, it's likely they used the spam links and have given up their email info. Craigslist bots do the same thing.

I lock out anyone that doesn`t list a correct full name or anything that is messed up when they register. I try to contact them to correct the problem and if no response after a few days they get locked out.

The problem banning an IP addresses here you are limited to 10 - 15 addresses. Then you have to wait to add another IP for fear that someone you take off the banned list doesn`t come back when you ad someone else.

Anyone that sees something like this that I do not catch. Contact me in a PM and I will take care of it. I believe Kent, BLT and my self are the only ones that can lockout members or ban IP addresses.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
