No.

Wonko has resolved to only post if really needed (i.e. to correct some blatantly incorrect information) or on threads posted by those he would call friends.

You are currently in the list as "friend", let me know if this is not accurate and your name will be removed ASAP.

Welcome back jaclaz :)

jaclaz is not "back", Wonko (the Sane) found it funny to reply in third person, that's it.

Checking if Peter placed this post was placed under "news" -> Done.

 

Nothing to else be done, Jaclaz has been officially sighted for some seconds. Now we can go home and wait for the next sighting. :lol:

Antonino, 

Luciad13 is a SPAMmer, as you can easily understand by the embedded link in the edited quote he/she posted.

Replying to SPAMmers and their nonsense posts is only helping them seem legitimate users.

No prob :) , you will soon learn to identify them at a glance.

 

Hints:

1) first post is a reply to an old thread <- always ask yourself WHY someone would join the board only to leave an unsubstantial comment
2) the contents are gibberish or anyway in broken English or out of topic

3) one or more links are embedded, either in the reply or in an edited quote of a previous post

 

#2 is actually more a state of mind than a valid SPAMmer detection rule as we have quite a few members that for one reason or the other might easily trigger an alarm if we take it too literally.

And on top of that, a supposedly french spammer  !

Or shall I say a "spammeur" :)

 

What would be the best attitude with these?

Hide the post? delete it? ban the user (even if by looking at the ip used, it is probably useless).

I usually, as a minimum, edit/break the url just in case it leads to a dodgy web site.

No "best" attitude that I know of.
jaclaz (was_jaclaz) used to:
1) delete the post altogether, where - not like in this case, where deleting it would make Antonino reply to nothing - OR edit/break the url
2) ban the user
 
The issue being that an active user that can edit his/her own posts may return and re-post another link (as a matter of fact this is what already happened, Luciad13 first made the post and later edited it to add the link, this latter being particularly insidious as - being inside the quote - tricks the reader into believing that the link was actually posted by the quoted member. 
 
And that also may explain part of the reasons why jaclaz, was_jaclaz and Wonko the Sane NEVER adds a "masked" link, *like* :
HERE
but ALWAYS uses the fully expanded one (that the board software usually stupidly shortens for no apparent reason, BTW):

P.S. (and OT) don't the French have an "own word" for SPAM?  :dubbio:

Sure the have one:
pollupostage :w00t: that would then be a polluposteur
