Dear Members,

As we are sure many of you have noticed in the past several days, our site has been under attack from a group of coordinated Spammers using multiple accounts. This is no doubt a result of our growth.

We have taken measures to make this considerably more difficult for them, but we still need your help.

Please report any and all Spam posts (no matter how innocent they look) and any Spam Private Messages you receive.

We will continue to monitor the situation and take action where appropriate.

Thank you,
AirlineComplaints.org

Dear Members,

It seems that this Spam attack is happening again.

As a result, we have just implemented an Anti-Spam service that will scan every post that is made before making it visible to ensure it does not contain any Spam.

This should significantly reduce the number of Spam posts you see on the site, and improve the service for everyone.

We will continue to monitor the situation and take action where appropriate.

Please report any and all Spam posts (no matter how innocent they look) and any Spam Private Messages you receive.

Thank you,

Your new anti-spam service that scans every post doesn't seem to be perfect. I see two more right now.

PS. I just tried to report them both but you have a great block on reporting. You have to wait 60 seconds between reporting posts. That's quite ironic. Blocking the people that are trying to help.
