Aah, yes! Spam spam spam! I've deleted it all now. Really really should get the update in order so we can get rid of this. I just need to "get rid" some clients and work for them first, I have my hopes up that I'll get more time for Rivendell in the near future. I will work less and play more with Rivendell

So be sure to send me donations to help pay the bills and to pay for food

Ah, yes, the spam enemy is once again attempting to spread its darkness into Rivendell. I have a nice bowl of rice and a seaweed wrapping to help take care of it!

Reports are that the enemy has been spreading false information (aka spam) less frequently as of late. But we have caught a couple of missives. Namely, "Are you facing problem wh … ut of your email account?" and "Install HP laserJet 1020 drivers on Mac". Strange creatures these are!

Almost forgot "How to regain the access of your email account?"

Everytime this happens it's a poke in the eye for me to get that upgrade going. Then it will be easier to hunt down and kill off spambots, plus it will also make it possible to prevent spambots from the start. Though I just need to get the time to work on the site, we'll probably need to take a step back in functionality first and then it's possible for us to move forward with new stuff. I just need to finish a first working draft, which I really have trouble with doing But it's getting nearer (yeah, I've said that for the last five years now )

Ha! Yeah, I'm learning in school the engineering approach to these kinds of endeavors. However, when you have six jillion other responsibilities, theory starts to take a back seat to real life.

The "write my essay for me" post in Computer Games is quite "phishy."

The latest "Greetings" post in General Talk (user pa6724453@gmail.com) also appears to be a spam setup.

The enemy is getting sneakier! They are starting to infiltrate lesser-known portals with more elaborate disguises:

truemetalwarrior88@gmail.com's post in Computer Games -> Mount and Blade Warband

shashi.better@gmail.com's post in Merchandising Talk -> T-Shirt price?

avawilliam's post in Out of Character Discussions -> How Does Microsoft 365 Support In Data Security

And they are also sending their skirmishers to the common areas:

michealhenderson02@outlook.com's post in General Music -> How to upgrade AOL Gold?

HughM's post in New member introductions -> Greetings! also looks rather suspicious (the link at the bottom of the post)

Of course, unless they are posting something fantasy-music related, most look suspicious when they are Level 1 accounts with a one-time hit of XP.
