Spam notice / link posting in blood letters

I have come across a load of spam and link posting via blood letters. When i do my next scan i'll be jailing accounts, there is no need for it. I have recorded all those who have been and they're being kept an eye on.

Just a heads up ^_^

Ash

EDIT: Sites like myspace, photo bucket, xat etc and in game links (for coven info etc) is fine. Just OUTSIDE sites that are not like the just listed. & i do not go through reading peoples blood letters, please don't misinterpret it as that. I simply search through blood letters with URLs etc that has been reported as spam and do other checks on blood letters with URLs in them to check they're okay. I do not sit and read through your mail, they are private, don't worry!

DarkAsh said...

Having to search through the site finding out people have been spamming blows too. Can't say it's a fun job.

Good point there Ash.

what about xat links for coven chats?

ClickClackStiletto said...

all links?? I can understand not wanting spam, or porn or other ridiculous stuff on the site, but what about links to photobucket, playlist and all that jazz? Just trying to be clear and keep my pretty pink pumps out of jail.

poor ash, is it really asking 2 much not to do those things. if they really enjoyed the game they would refrain from being a bunch butt-heads. surely ash has better things to do than scan for spam.

I don't remember seeing it's against the rules to send a link. What counts as spam in bl? Not understanding this, i know what people spam forums with but why would someone spam bls?

mesayah said...

i think he is on about the click link that ya need to get 50 clicks on and it also generates money, i can understand him not want people to send it around and make cash unfairly.

DarkAsh said...

thinks like xat, photobucket, myspace etc links are fine.

Dosiseous said...

Well I think the only people going to be upset about this and comment negatively are those that are most likely abusing this policy. I played world of warcraft for over 5 years and got extremely tired of the spammers so you doing something about them here is a great thing Ash. My hats off to you.

*Things like Xat, photobucket, myspace ect links are fine.

To have to search through BLs and continuously in order to find those that cannot abide by the rules has to be bloody hell. I am sorry Ash that you are indeed having to do this. And when you find them ... jail, jail, jail! Toss out the key and be done with it. Maybe that way it will stop? No ... it won't I know. However was a nice thought whilst it lasted! :) Best of luck ... :p

Dosiseous said...

LOL I like that Slayer tossing out the key would be a good thing if they are spamming. It makes the game less enjoyable for us all.

Okay I have a little issue with this. i've connected so well with others on this site more than any other site and most have asked me for my Myspace, yahoo etc etc to keep in touch in case our accounts got deleted. To this day I have over 10 or more friends on my yahoo and myspace to keep in contact with. Tell me this, How are we going to stay in contact with our friends that met us on RoB?

So does this mean that you are going through blood letters on a regular basis? Even ones that you have received no specific complaint about? Are you personally reading the bl's of people and enjoying the content? Because I can tell you many people send things in BL that they expect no one else to be looking at. And I don't care how explicit a privacy (or non privacy) statement you have, it's no less than a betrayal of trust for you to be reading bl's that you don't have a reason to read. Having said that, if you are using a scan and not personally reviewing individual bl's unless they are flagged by the scan, even that is not a guarantee that it won't flag innocent private bl's. Also, I think it's not unreasonable to request a disclosure of what you scan for.

DarkAsh said...

Edited the post to answer that question.

Eddy said...

I sent the link of my Deviant Art account to a friend once, is that one the ok sites or is that taboo?

Eddy said...

*one of the ok sites I mean

What about playlist? Everybody needs a playlist. Surely that's not a horrible sin?

DarkAsh said...

Playlists and deviant art are fine.

so when I sent a freind a link to a photography website and it came back as http://www.SPAM/area/photography that put me on your naughty list?

Hahah, you have no idea how lame that is.

DarkAsh said...

I'm not the only person who adds to the spam list ;)

Anonymous said...

Oh, I still love you and all that jazz, I just think it is lame that someone would add that site to the spam list as it is in no way competing with ROB or a game site. Just a rather interesting website full of resources and news.
It just does not make sense to me, its like trying to ban people from talking about math in art school.

Duke Danse Macambre said...

Well if they have to spam there link about they must be new, the older ones don't much care for this kind of thing.
They are well known in the first place.

Anyway the 50 clicks thing is easier to do messayah, Some use proxy sites to do it, others just quick play online people.
Easy enough to do. :P

Semera Bloodlust said...

More work.. less play. I'd go on strike if I was you! :p haha

Toria said...

if you can't play by the rules, don't play. simple as that.

Lord Necrophagous said...

I agree with Toria, anonymous - get over it, love Darkash or not you're still complaining, it states no advertising, no spamming etc....if ppl want to know whether they can post a link or whatever then go ask Darkash first, simple. Problem solvered. L.N.

That sounds really boring. If people had enough sense not to spam, there would be no reason to go through them. I honestly feel bad for you, Ash.

Anonymous said...

Ash you have your work cut out for you..
I would hate having to go through all the BL and such..
