I have to believe that pretty much everyone here got this spam comment.  Miss Fanta seems to be active in quite a few Ning communities:

http://crisiscommunications.ning.com/profile/FantaKonan

http://zion100.ning.com/profile/FantaKonan

...and the list goes on.

 

Is there anything either we or Ning can do to stop this?  Judging from the member profiles on the Crisis Communications site, Fanta isn't the only person doing this:

So I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't our last round of Spam.  I, personally, have gotten pretty good at ignoring spam, but I'm concerned how this affects our effort directed at "Building Our NING Community".

 

Thoughts?

Seems like someone on the back end is deleting these.  I see in my inbox, and even have a "Approve Comment" link, but when I click it (so I can delete it), there is nothing there.

 

I would imagine it is dependent on how approvals are done that might dictate how much of this we see.

Would be nice to have a reverse spam huh.....   something with kindness  like   join the Seti client pool
Darn, I was hoping it was a real request. I wanted a new friend - especially one with such low standards as to be impressed by my profile.

BOL!

I deleted this spammer. As soon as I saw the post I flagged the account as a spammer, which then removes all content posted by them. Kristin, Craig, and myself are on the lookout for these spammers and will remove them as soon as we see them.

I just got one from a different person:

 

Interesting,How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile. I really want to have a good friendship with you. Beside i have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Please i will like you to contact  me, through my private e-mail via: (augustinaharuni@yahoo.co.uk) So we can get to know each other better,and i well give you my pictures and also tell you more about me OK.Yours Friend,Augustin.
