"cartoondvd" just hit with 36 posts at 9:59, "replicalouis" just hit with 39 posts mostly in Alabama, again one hour apart. It is another automailer. These have been reported by PM.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

I just looked up the profile of dressesdresses. There is a listing for friend or foe. I checked foe. screen went to my control panel and listed them as foe and it said something about their posts being in default and not visible? What exactly does this mean? Anybody?

You mean I got rid of dressesdresses just that easy? I went to his or hers profile to see what I could find out. When I saw "friend or foe" I thought why not tryn it. Anyway, I can't find their posts anywhere. It somehow seems too easy.

Sorry Charlie, You did not get rid of it, just made it invisable for you. For everyone else, it was still clogging the system. But it made it easier for you to see the real posts. It is intended for less polite sites, when someone is being a A$$#@*&, and everyone can then ignore them. Ben still has to zap them to kill them.

Well, if everyone made them a "foe" no body would see them. I think it's great, I see no dressesdresses posts at all. I'm going to get rid of the others also.

Go for it Charlie, it is there to make it easier for YOU, and that is what it does. The posts will stll clog the system and slow it down. Do you realize some of these spam posters have posted over a thousand posts in a few minutes? I would not be suprised if that could crash the servers. I don't even know what other damage they can do, but that part is out of our hands and in Ben's sights. FOE will help you, but not help the site.

How do I post videos? I don't want to post a link, but actually embed the video in a post?
