Why is Wiseguide Deals spamming the forum again?
 
More spam from this "vendor". I have tried to ban them but can't. I thought we had solved this problem back in July.

I read the rules for vendors, and I couldn't see what they are doing that is against the rules??? I probably just skimmed over the boring rules and missed it.

The problem is that their posts are only occasionally aquarium related. The one I just deleted was general pet supplies (dogs and cats) and in the past they have advertised housewares, furniture, etc.

They should get a vendor forum and put their posts there. I see the problem when they put their posts in the General forum. Don't they need to pay to get a vendor forum?

We had them spam BC Aquaria in the last couple or so days too. I believe they have paid Vertical Scope (the owners of a number of forums) for ads. Iím a mod on BC Aquaria and I couldnít ban them or their IP (I also believe their content is irrelevant). The times are a changing!

Best regards,

Stuart

Thanks, CRS. Yes, it seems they have some kind of agreement with Vertical Scope but no one will tell us the terms. I will continue to delete their posts until someone takes away my moderator card, lol.

Excellent! How did you do it? Or is this one of your secret super powers?

I have an admin menu I can do stuff like that from. Also kinda doubt he had a legit agreement with anyone.
