Goofy error message

Postby Sidney Raper » Wed Jan 19, 2005 10:31 pm

OK, this is a new one for me. I posted a reply to the crank scraper thread and it went through, but I get an error message that said that I don't have permission to access this server. Any ideas?

That's a new one for me too. If it keeps happening, let me know.

I occasionally see this error, but not consistently. I'll have to do a little research to see if I can figure out what's going on.

Thanks for your patience,
Chris C.

I just re-installed the "emailer.php" file, and reset it's permissions. Let's see if that fixes things. Hopefully! :shock:

Chris,

You may want to contact the Guest to find out why they are adding phantom links for all kinds of crap in their post...

This has happened a couple of times in the past week, and I've deleted the post. At this time, I'll be removing 'guest' acess to post anything to this board. You must be a registered member (and logged in) to post, and I'll be watching things carefully.

Regards,
Chris

This is too bad....I remember my frustration at trying to post to some SE-R sites when I just wanted to sell a crash damaged car. I didn't want to join the list necessarily but that was the policy. I ended up being able to post on other sites and selling the car.

Is it possible to prevent a guest from posting links, yet still be able to post a legitimate question or comment?

It's pretty much all or nothing. If a guest can post, there's no way to restrict them from posting links.

FYI, this is how the 311s.org board is set up, and they seem to be OK. I too, would like to keep the guest posting open, but I just don't have the time to keep removing the (very) inappropriate posts.

One other option would be to give a few others the permission to moderate, that way, they could delete posts as well.

The "guest" user could very well be an automated script that seeks out php boards with guest access, and then starts posting. The post then gets searched by the google search engine, and then they get free advertising, sort of.

Chris.
The phantom posters are automated. eventually you will have them signing on using usernames like " aabc " and stuff like that . I have seen them register three times in one night on some BV boards. Maybe the upgrade
will keep this from happening . I will also check with my friend to see what he did to eliminate them from the board he runs .

Well, the way things are set up now, any new user has to get an authorization email from me before they sign up. That should keep the 'bots' from stirring things up too much.

Best regards,
