This is why.
Chess.com need to ban the ip of that user, not just the account. This has happened way too many times.
I like how x31fighter interrupted the wall of ads :D
I got an invite, but I am not an indian, so...
Chess.com need to ban the ip of that user,
Maybe you can answer a question for me. Why do people always say 'ban the IP'? That is completely useless. Most people are given a new IP when they trun on their computers and connect to the internet.
I think a lot of people really have no idea how the internet works and throw it out there to sound like they do. Is this correct?
As an IT guy: if you are using something like a cable modem as I understand it you like get a new IP from you to the cable modem if it's configured that way (typical). The cable modem to the outside would might keep the same IP for a long while, maybe until you cycle power on it (or the cable company does a reset). So in essense, "banning the IP" doesn't make sense.
From a company connection you might have a fixed IP address, but then,... you probably shouldn't be playing chess from work :)
How do people see that a new thread exists to even post. The only way I know they exist is when I see them on the right under most recent posts.
I wonder this too. I wonder too how many good posts are sitting unanswered.
The more I think about it, the more I think this approach for the spam is pretty lame. All they seem to have done is stop the complaining about the spam, not actually solving the problem of spam.
I was wondering why my recent new thread didn't show... I agree it's lame since the next thing would be for the spammers to just post a few responses - if they can automate making new ones, they can automate posting to their own. So anyway, I should post like 6 or 8 bumps to my own thread so it gets on the "most recent list"? Or do I need to have a friend/sock-puppet do that?
I don't think spammers are doing it to hurt the forum though. I don't think they care if it their posts show up in the recent topic list or whether or not people post in them.
I tried posting bumps to my own thread and a few posts (4 or 5 total) made it show up on the "most recent" list.
