Chat group to fight spam and more.

There is no such thing as a stupid question here as long as it pertains to using NewsBin. Newbies feel free to get help getting started or asking questions that may be obvious. Regular users are asked to be gentle. :-)

Chat group to fight spam and more.

Hi,

It seems that with the new attacks from spammers on USENET we need to act fast to add filters.

For that matter I created the chat group https://t.me/NewsbinUsers on Telegram.
If you're interested by only the name of the spammers so you can add then to your filter, they could be advertised on the channel https://t.me/USENETSpammers

Telegram is a chat app which works on Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Android, iOS and as a webapp inside a browser. It allows easy sharing of any kind of file.

Thanks but we already have a chat group. It's our private IRC channel. irc.newsbin.com - open to anyone, hosted on our own servers, not EFNET.

Hi,

I'm not suggesting to create a help group, but 2 separate things :

  • alert channel with fast update so users can update their filter quickly.
  • a chat group to talk about this spam problem. And maybe more if there is enough interest, yes.

It seems that this is a new spammer : Links not allowed for unregistered users (RIPPER).
