#14547 Good day all,

I have received a few messages about spam.

1st off many thanks to Manual_Puller for keeping this clean. He does it on lunch with his phone. It is a pain in the ass. Cheers to him for helping out.

Regarding this site, I am wavering on just letting it go to some ad-bot to just get some of the money back that I put into getting it together. I want to support the community but I just don't have time. I am into the site for 2k including the build, hosting, url and some promo stuff I did early on.

That being said, if someone that want's to carry on the community and the opportunities that come from it, I would consider selling the page and it's database for $1,200.00.

This site has a tremendous opportunity to build and pull some easy income without watering down the community. If anyone is curious just reach out to me. 22tcmnet@gmail.com

I sent one of the messages, and am also really chapped at the Russians, Ukranians or whoever. I have translated their
drivel and it is the Russian language. I know of no way of how to stop this trash from screwing up our forum.
Or, why they picked on .22TCM.net to antagonize us. They do not do the Russian people a favor by their
actions either.
I, like 22TCM really love the pistol and like reading of others successes with this caliber. I think the scarcity of
.22TCM bullets is over, and intend to purchase a .22TCM rifle. i would love to take over this website, but being
retired, cannot afford it. Wouldn't it be great if we could turn the tables on the jerks screwing this site up?
Anybody know a good computer hacker who could turn the tables on these pieces of trash?

#14554 Have we looked into selling ad space to help with costs? I mean, since we're seeing ads anyway it would be nice to see one that I can read and without nudity....lol

#14586 I appreciate you guys taking care of all this spam drivel. Thank you very much.

I don't know if there is much to do to stop it. Nowadays they have highly sophisticated programs (robots) that do this for them.

#14771 Woodchucker, 1911shooter and Manual_puller have deleted a crapton of spam for the board. Thank you gentleman.

I have converted the board to require human approval. The spam users will not crate a problem for the future. In the meantime it will just require keeping on top.

This change will make it so many new perspective users will not get activated putting the information source at risk.

22TCM,
Sounds good to me. I did not expect to see the board cleared today. Those Spam Bots were really busy.

it was my pleasure (I think). That robo spam was getting pretty tough. We still have this little Russki who sends
about 1 or two a week. But, I may have a surprise for him! yuush
