    The site is being overwhelmed with spam. Is isixsigma doing anything to tackle the problem, or are just waiting until complete meltdown.

    I’m staying away from this site until this is fixed. Don’t need any viruses. So far, this has been a big debacle. I understand and appreciate debugging but this is getting out of hand.

    In the last day we have been getting hit with a storm of spam. We are working to ban IP addresses as quickly as possible and are looking to see what else can be done to get ahead of the spamming and prevent it from even reaching the forum to begin with.

    The Discussion Forum section on the Home page is a mess because of the spam. When isixsigma had issues with being riddled with virus’ not too long ago, my organziation blocked access company wide to this site. I’m afraid that if this spam is not controlled soon, the site could relive the same problem… I hope this is being looked at as priority 1.

    We are working to address the spam.

    Please know that spam is a typical problem affecting forums. This is in no way related to the problems that we faced last summer.

    Is my information safe? I am getting at least 5-10 emails every couple hours that look like the text below. Its getting so out of control. Do I need to cancel my Don Draper account so I cant get emailed anymore?

    Your information is safe. As a subscriber to a topic that is receiving spam posts, you are being notified of new posts. In this case, those emails are telling you about spam, but they could just as easily be a valid post within that topic.

    You could unsubscribe to those topics and that would stop the emails.

    Your information is safe and secure.

    Thanks Katie. Any news yet on getting rid of the person(s) doing the spamming?

    And how do you “unsubscribe” from all posts?

    This is an automated spam attack. We’re working to counter it as quickly as possible.

    To unsubscribe from all posts, go to My Profile > Forum Options. At the bottom of that box, you will see an option for Unsubscribe All.

    I apologize for this inconvenience.
