We’ve obviously just been cluster-bombed by guccishoes. He’s got most recent reply in just about every forum, and even here in Mod Discussion, his are several deep.

Can he be banned and will that automatically remove all of these messages? Or do we have to manually delete them? I’ll do some manually now, but won’t have time to remove all of them.

I just cleaned up Cheap Flights forum, almost 2 pages worth. Looks like Fav. Places has about the same amount. Ugh.

I am just getting here now. sorry I am late this morning.
But if I delete everything, can he still be banned?
Well, I’ll get started now.

ETA: Got halfway through and suddenly it said “the comment no longer exists,” I am thinking that Mim or Swill or someone is taking care of things?
heh
Didn’t realize that Guccishoes also hit the Moderator Forum.

Hi Cil — I’m deleting them from Fav. Places and Transport — just finished those. Working on Packing now, but then I’m calling it quits on these until he’s banned. I think there’s plenty of evidence still strewn about for Mim and Swill to see.

Indeed there is plenty of evidence.
Some of the posts dredged up are a real time warp.
I thought Swill could not save everything before 2007, but obviously it’s there somewhere.
I will get started on the Pub, but I have to leave soon for a couple hours.

I just got Hostels and Packing. Not so bad to do with tabbed browsing.

Well done, Don.

guccishoes – I’ve deleted several so far. And I think nyashar is spamming to sell a book.

Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, and end up getting charged double.

Thanks Cil and mb. I felt like a parent coming home after my kids threw one helluva wild party—guccishoes was latest comment on just about every forum, some nearly 2 pages deep worth of the same spam. Looks a lot better in here now.

I know what you mean!
I went back and took that last one out of the pub that I’d left behind.
I just couldn’t stand looking at the username.

Wasn’t around all day and I’m just seeing this now — what a freaking mess. Thanks so much for such quick responses! “mbt shoes sale” also hit up a bunch of content, trips, and travel tips. Banning these guys now. Hold off on individually deleting posts if there’s any left — I’m going to email will and see if there is a way to mass delete all of these spammers posts at once.

I’ll keep you posted.

Thanks again — You guys rock.

Thanks for any clean-up you guys did for me. This is my first log-on today.

Cil: We really hit “spring time in the Rockies” on this trip — major snow “at altitude” in Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and California.

Enjoy but stay safe, Oldlady. It has been a crazy spring out west.
Thanks Mim, I’ll hold off any more deletions—Gucci still has one here in the Mod forum.

As of the moment there is no way to delete all posts by a user

I’ll take care of the rest of the spam and go through the other content on the site. I think we need to find a better solution to keep these bots outta here!

Thanks again everyone.

Ok, that should be everything by both of those guys. Let me know if you find anything else. Thanks again.
