I Need A Parrot - Spam attacks (*grrrs*)  
Apologies for the influx of spam reviews that have hit the I Need a Parrot site lately. I'm working on deleting them all and banning the offenders.

Unfortunately with a site such as this we are never going to be completely immune to this kind of thing and we can only beat them together. If you have received a spam review on any of your stories - or if you've noticed them on someone else's story while you've been reading - please let me know either by using the 'report a violation of rules' option on the site or by emailing directly to admin@moments-lost.org with a link to the offending review and/or user.

In addition, I am going through the member list and deleting the obvious spam bots and it would help immeasurably if genuine members could edit their profiles with some kind of indication that they are actual people and not spam bots.

Thank you all for your patience!

Shona (aka Mara)

I've been riding herd on that at NHA. I feel your pain.

Sympathies. It must feel like being Sisyphus. :-) This was one reason why I decided against having a forum style page on my website.
If it helps sort me out, I'm draconin there too. Yell if you'd like something non-botty in my profile too.

Thanks dude, it definitely feels *exactly* like a never-ending uphill struggle...

It'll be worth it in the end, I keep telling myself this...

Hee!
