Is Threadless becoming unvisitable? Spam gone, yay!

i mean...one goes away for a few days and upon each return one is faced with a new technical calamity! Case in point this endless sh*t stream of spam that continues unabated...

Yeah, I'm surprised that this online streaming shit is still getting posted. I posted a thread last night and it instantly got buried in spam posts.

Hey guys, we are working on getting this taken care of as we speak. We are definitely aware of how annoying it is. Thanks for being patient and hopefully we'll have this knocked out ASAP so we can get back to hanging out!

Well with all the ongoing Beta issues, the apparent exodus of loads and loads of regulars, the inactive blogs...and the relentless spam it's kinda becoming a chore to come and hang out. Sort of like visiting with weird, creepy distant relations. I'm really looking forward to a time when all of this is in the past for good.

i have battered wife syndrome so i keep coming back

jk, it's definitely annoying but i'm sure theyll fix it soon. i mean its not like this happens everyday lol. the spam filters usually good but i guess they just got attacked by the Michael Jordana spambot

We're working on this furiously over here. We've commissioned a team of coffee powered robots to help us delete the forum spam as well as help us address our technical issues on the application side.

Spam is a crappy thing and we're doing our best to mitigate it. We hate it too...just hang in there :)

Like Jeff said, its annoying (and he is too) but I'm sure its more annoying for the Threadles Jedi that have to sort out all this crap, knowing that users are pissed off and frustrated. It'll all be taken care of shortly I'm sure. Just use take some crack cocaine until your Threadless supply line can reopen and you can get your fix.

Been unvisitable for about 3 years.

She ain't what she used to be.

I support this.

I also support being nice to Threadtstaff-- especially when there's a glitch (there are always glitches! It's okay!) and the forums are spammed. We all know the forums aren't normally like this, and we also all know they'll be back to their less-spammy, useable form soon enough.

Threadstaffers, I love you!! <3

I'm no grudge-holder, it seems like the spam is going away as we speak, I thank the Threadtstaff for that. Now let's try to bring the community to its former glory.

yes and yes and yes

We are attending to the spam with some ninja scripts we've written as well as addressing some of them posts manually. However, the spam is being posted by a bot(and from what I've gleaned so far from our server stack it is being done by multiple locations from around the globe). This is a bit more sophisticated than your every day spammer so that is why we haven't been able to address this as quickly as we'd like.

Can't Dan just become a full time spammer hitman? Parachute him into hostile spammer territory and sort these issues out permanently.

P.s. ditto thanks for the heads up Adam.

P.P.s. despite the initial grumbles (me included) the beta site is pretty sweet and once its finished it'll be awesome!

FlyingMonkeyMan

Where's that spam name challenge that got started when the last big wave of spammers came through?

I'm sure advertising for TV shows and NBA games has some solid printing potential
