914club.com Classifieds

The script that runs the classifieds now has a anti spam filter that is controlled by a .txt list that I can add and remove lines from.

NO MORE Home working BS and DOG crap.

This is a temporary fix until I finish testing the new classifieds which will require a login and passoword.

probably the only way around this is to make a username/passwd login like here. at least you could make the initial sign up process a big enough hassle that people won't want to do it over and over again (everytime you ban them).

the keyword thing will work better over time, will take a while to build up a good list.

hopefully you're not supplying an error message if someone uses one of the keywords in an ad.

Actually they are getting a nasty message telling them to F-off.

Your right about the list. Hopefully the new classifieds will be ready in another week or so and I wont have to worry about adding "keywords"

the only reason I mentioned the error is because of this...

if they get an error saying the post didn't work they will figure out a way around it. if you accept the post like normal, just not adding it to the page, they will not know what's going on.

The last time I went to the 914 Club ads, they were over 4 mos. old, so I never went back. If I can get me one o' those *passowords,* I'd be willing to take a look again. I'd be great to have priviledges to see this mo. ads.

However, since things are moving so fast these days, I check recycler and Pelican 3-4 times a day. Even seeing a week old ad is a waste of time. Whatever it is that is advertised is gone, long gone.

Just visit:

www.914club.com

And click on the classifieds ads. link.

At one point in time.. the dgi/914 site was the only thing going for classifieds. The owner of the dgi site hasnt done anything with it for almost 6 years now. I opted to put the same script up and get something going again when the other site scripts broke. I did this 1.5 years ago with plans to build a site. I handed it off to more capable hands and nothing happened. I'm once again on the path to getting a "vendor nuetral" site up and running.

You wont need a login or password for another week or so.

SWEET.

I just turned the logging function on. It will tell us who and where the spam is coming from.

Everybody can watch:

You know... I'm pretty good with pulling off miracles when its comes to 914's.. but your asking too much now. I almost edited his ad for him. The new system will have a notify feature and the ability to remove ads by the poster.

I like how he says "AWD preferred", like you can choose between the 2 wheel drive and AWD versions!

Ahh yes .. MR.WIZARD. Olav Anderson (the guy with the 3.2 in factory 6) "manipulated" the scripts to pull these peoples information for me. I have already called 3 ISP's to have them blocked.

Thank you Mr. Anderson. (sounds like The Matrix.. MR. ANDERSON)

I also ran across HOW they are getting this info. It seams that there is a new script that can be run against websites too collect email address's when you post something.

Olav rocks.

Brad I posted this spam on the club914 sight I hope you don't mind, Mark

I do not like spam,
said Brad I am.
Our club had spam,
and spam is a scam.
what to do about spam,
said Brad I am.

We need a plan,
to put this spam in a can.
We need a plan,
to stick their spam
up their butt with a ram,
said Brad I am.

Brad called Olav,
and said we have spam,
Olav was the man,
a man with the plan,
to put spam in a can
said Brad I am.

A program they ran,
a filter against spam,
a fram for spam
because our club had spam,
and spam was a scam.
said Brad I am.

No more spam,
the spam is in the can,
they can kiss my ham,
oh, how happy I am,
said Brad I am.

Thank you to Brad Roberts and Olav Anderson.
