Ignore the SPAM, please

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Charlie Russel - MVP, Jan 1, 2008.

  1. The MS public newsgroups have been hit this morning by a bunch of SPAM.
    Please just ignore the messages, and don't reply to them. I've reported
    them, and they'll eventually get cleaned off the servers, but it always
    takes longer than I'd like and it is made harder if folks reply to the
    messages, since the replies hang around after the original is gone.

    Thanks for your understanding. And my apologies for the mess it made of our
    "home".

    I've created a global filter in Agent to automatically delete all of
    those messages:

    Subject: {M.I.5}
    Kill Action: Delete

  3. he keeps changing the thing slightly. And deleting them is no big issue
    locally. It's getting them off the server that concerns me.

    Highlighting and hitting the delete key works well locally.

    That's a regular expression using the wildcard character ".". It
    matches (and deletes) all of the messages that he's posted so far.

    But yes, it doesn't help get them off the server.
