unwelcome pests
« on: September 16, 2007, 11:55:30 pm »
Hi all, been having some unwelcome room pests recently, they drop by and pm the rooms users with messages like this

Quote
DO NOT TELL YOUR ROOM ADMINS  BUT .... they are lying to you  most of your members are fake try browsing them and you get nothing, also your room admins share child porn Remove your room tag and come and join our room we have the fastest download speeds on winmx

Quote
fed up of being a member of a dead boring room and a room whos  ***in ***ting admins secretly share child porn ? If   remove your tag and come and join our room we are the best room on winmx ever. come to *******************

I have asked around and it seems like they have been doing this to others as well, I wont mention the room name as I see no point in allowing anyone to gain from this activity, but just wanted you all to be aware if this is happeneing to you your not alone and to set up a bot to kick on PM as I have.

PS: I logged the IP  84.x.x.x. range a few times now so keep eye open for this one.

PPS: If you want to add any more or let us know if you've been affected leave out the IP's, names of person and room name, we dont want them to have more visitors to bring their numbers up

Hmm thats sounds like a nasty bunch of folks Defender  :?

I,m sure none of us want to see this sort of activity spread, the most annoying part for me is the alleagtion of child porn trafficking, this is one of the worst things to accuse ppl of, lets hope these lamesters slip up and we can shame them into apologising.

just like to add that as a host on winmx I also have had the same pests visit my room,
I wish they would slip up , I dont appreciate getting the above pms as Defender listed , the accusation
is awful, and would love to know who it is and what fun they are getting out of it.

Well said though Defender you are not on your own :}

I know the room was not named, and I agree with that, but has anyone gone to that room and asked if they are behind it.   Sometimes user do things like this to anoy the admin of the room, because they have been banned etc.   You may find that the admin of that room know who you are talking about and have that person banned by ip.

* also posted in other thread of same nature
just another bunch of desperate idiots playing games ··º)([¥])(º·· Defender  ban their ips/names and perhaps set a bot or two in your room list to kick ban any pm spamers
place a warning in the room ( perhaps in your welcome message) though asking people to ask b4 pming anyone though (save regs & innocents from getting banned)
perhaps also place a warning in the room of whats going on
personally i wouldn't join any room that pmd me weather it be crap like this or any other msg telling me to join there room as good rooms have no need for these tactics they rely on reputation and word of mouth & let their files do the advertising

i have seen some nasty PM's to my members, i did visit the room that was shown in their PM's
they are ware of this and their names & room is being cloned,
3 of their members names with the same IP tried to enter the room i host for a friend, but in the actual room the 3 members have totally different IP's & one was even a no-ip dj radio thing,
so that shows how smart or rather dumb the cloner is,
the other room did apologise to anyone having these nasty PM's.

The lastest in the on going attack on us will not get our room to shut down Im sorry to say as the length of time you have been trying the more people become aware that MNO are niether cloners or spammers and to all rooms that have suffered at the hands of these low lifes Im sorry but as you all know we are trying our best to find out who is doing it but please understand that we to have lifes outside of mx and cant always be in the room to make you all aware of what is happening every hour of the day. That is why I decided tonight to post this to let as many rooms know at once that there is a clone going around as many rooms as possible trying to get you to think that pm's are been sent by members of Movies New And Old.We are hopping that it gets resovled one way or another as soon as possible.


And I would like to say A big thankyou to all that have helped and supported us throughout this attck :O)

This situation is getting beyond a joke people on proxy servers cloning decent room hosts and making suggestions of child porn about other room hosts,
I personnaly wish they would grow up and get a life and stop sending malicous pms, if they got a problem be big and confront dont hide behind a proxy server !!!!!!!!!!!

Re: unwelcome pests
« Reply #16 on: September 17, 2007, 11:14:18 pm »
haha they so much of a coward to hide behind a proxy they even dare to clone my hostname
if they that big and brave have the guts to come see me with a real ip and real name this is pathetic
