Never fear!

Hello everyone,

Quite an afternoon we're having. We are looking into a solution with the spammers. Since there is no moderator here, I will have to go a different route. I will be in contact with our rep at Vanilla tomorrow, because it is 5pm out here today and I didn't find out about it until an hour ago, I had no time to react.

Hang in there everyone, take a break, give it about 24 hours for everything to go back to normal.

We are aware and will keep you posted.

Thanks!

Ken C

    Some unkind words were said about Pugs. Also a lot of references to genitalia.

    Seems doubtful that Sound United would ever go along with this request. In fact, it’s probably only a matter of time before an Instagram button gets added. The sheer volume of communication on those platforms is too massive for any company to ignore.

    I've noticed a few random SPAM accounts/posts left over. It may be a good idea to FLAG anything that you see to aid in the removal of ones that were mixed in with other comments or with ALT accounts that didn't get the ax.

  • The bat signal was raised yesterday. Ken S is working on it, and I am waiting on another response from Vanilla.
  • Also, do we know who is doing this. Not just speculation, but who it actually is?

    All signs point to a recently banned member named Fastz28.
