Thanks for the warning on Bill Bailey. Spamming about some kind of jug.

John,

Thanks for the work that you do against spammers.

I apologize that I wasn't more attentive to your resources and abilities before I made a "boob" of myself some months ago which I'm never to live down.

Don't worry about it. You apologized, and now we're over it.  You put a lot of good content into this site.

Great work! You people are on it.  Thanks for helping us keep it about growing fruit and not about SPAM.

Today's was more incoherent or off topic than nefarious.  Sometimes they plant a post and then it looks later like they've been contributing.  Thanks for helping out.

The one today was just paraphrasing previous posts. MINE actually. I dm'ed them and said it looked like SPAM.  We'll see. I may have to ban them.

In the latest new topic the new user coded html "async" and the term used is taught here;

https://www.w3schools.com/tags....._async.asp

Which allows for a script to be looked at by browser. It could be that it is a byproduct of the wordpress sandbox, so try to delete that last half where the problem is and we wait to see what he says.

------------------------added last----------------

I investigated more and all images are scribed with async. Now I think this deserves a chance to let him edit and revise because we can't help him if this is what we are seeing:

Every now and then, I'm able to catch the SPAMMERS by myself.  I almost feel like a real adult now.

I've seen a bunch lately.  Maybe I've been checking more and in the past you'd taken care of them.

I ban and then delete when I see irrelevant 1st time posts.

Me too. If one is questionable, I might allow it, but usually it is really obvious when they are spamming.

I'd like a ruling on "Growing apples in baggies", post #6: it looks like some kind of AI re-wording of post #4.

Either that, or Lester action went to a lot of trouble to be redundant.

Great catch Larry G. 

That was a first post and it looked like you said, a technological rewording. I think these posts are made so it looks like they've been contributing and then they SPAM you.

I deleted it.

Hi John S.,

I'm just checking into the website for the second time after a few months.  THANK YOU, JOHN, for the work that you do on this Forum.  And I thank any and all others who help to keep the HOS Forum in "good shape."  I know that I, myself, have gotten out-of-line on at least one or two occasions, and the oversight is vitally important to making this Forum friendly and useful to those asking relevant questions about fruit growing.  I appreciate all of you on the HOS Forum who make this such an interesting, informative, and useful place on the internet!

Sincerely,

Reinettes.

These guys have been going crazy lately! Thanks for the help.  I'd rather hang out in the orchard than take exams anyway.
