    VMs

    Any chance there could be a restriction put in place so users need, say, ten posts before they can post VMs?

    It's all being dealt with quickly enough but I'd personally not read **** about the various females in my life or allegations against my sexuality across people's walls, and I'm sure Howe_Zat and others would probably prefer their name wasn't posted in such a way ether.

    Yeah it was pretty despicable posting. We're in the process of putting such a restriction since the first occurrence and trying to figure out exactly how to go about doing it. James and PEWS are on it unless I'm mistaken, and I think the length would be different as well.

    It absolutely sucks to see posts like that on your VM though. The worst I got was Porkistan...

    Also, vB doesn't really give us a way to see any messages a poster may have left on people's VMs unless we go rifling through profiles, so the only way we know is if you report it. With posts in the forums, we can simply do a "select all" and delete, but that is not the case with VMs. So if people see any more such messages floating around on people's walls, please report them.

    An SQL query would nab it pretty quickly actually but we'd need James to do that every time.

    I got the “Porkistan” VM as well. I sympathize with all that were targeted. It’s obvious the pathetic **** that’s doing it enjoys the attention (and would no doubt love reading this thread). Can only imagine how difficult it must be for his parents to tolerate that sicko (he’s single for sure as I’m 100% sure no female would allow him within 50 yards of themselves).

    Surely they're all being left at a similar time so
    User CP -> New Items (Under Moderation) -> Visitor Messages
    Would give you a list of all VMs posted in revers chronological order?
    Obviously not sure what the CW Admin panel is like mind you.

    Yeah that's how I was knocking them off before when I was online at the time of the attack. It's still not anywhere near as easy as purging a poster though.

    This the same dickless wonder who (ironically) posted some hard core pron on my wall?

    I got off lightly if so.
