and the users

jakipullenbee
adamrose110

these where both yahoo adresses with a name

so it seems that someone is doing a manual spaming

and waste his and our time

I get in touch with yahoo to find out how they got an account there

adamjohn1100

this user registered half an hour ago

so someone is having fun here

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by admin

The registration for flexpart.eu is closed for the moment

yahoo is aware of hacked accounts

This where no automated procedures just a/some trolls

comment:5 Changed 6 years ago by admin

The registration will be closed till the end of this week

we ll implement some additional features in the registration process to make sure that legitimate e-mail addresses are involved

and after that open up the registration for everyone again

  • Status changed from assigned to closed

To get rid of spams, some antispam mechanism have been activated.

the registration is open again.

  • Resolution worksforme deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

As the spamfilter has to learn to distinguish between spam and non-spam some tickets will pass nevertheless at the beginning

last spam was again from a yahoo address with an legitimate email. the user has been deleted

Greetings to Islamabad

deleted the troll tickets

We are training the spam database
but as no "real" tickets come along its impossible to distinguish "correct" from spam

What's the status - is registration possible now? Cf. wiki:RegisteredUser

comment:10 Changed 6 years ago by admin

The status is
that anyone can register as normal

I ve edited the relevant wiki page

comment:11 Changed 6 years ago by admin

This time its not yahoo anymore

fakeinbox.com is now state of the art

comment:12 Changed 6 years ago by pesei

I think it will be necessary to find a LASTING solution. Please tell us (off-line!)

  1. what you have implemented as anti-spam measures
  2. what your proposals for the future are

Thanks, Petra

comment:13 Changed 6 years ago by admin

There is NO off-line discussion

1) These are trolls not SPAM
2) so its an arms race, they find a way through and we will block it
3) and thats none of your business
