    Recent Spam Attacks

    ...and with that, I think this discussion has run its course. Report the spammers, whenever they rear their ugly heads.

    Recent Spam Attacks

    Hello everyone! First off, sorry about all the recent spam attacks. It sucks, but unfortunately there's not really much the mod or admin staff can do to prevent them from happening in the first place. Since we can't do anything preventative, we have to focus on being reactive when the attacks come in. When an LGW user uses the Report function, it sends an email to each member of the staff to alert us. Granted, there aren't as many active mods now as there have been in the past, so it may take some time for us to get to it. LGW's mod tools make cleaning up a spam attack very easy, so once we're aware of the spammer, we can clear it out quickly and easily. I can't promise that I will be more active on LGW like I was in years past. Family and work concerns understandably take up a significant chunk of my time. But I will promise to at least be more reactive to reports from members, and address any future spam attacks in a more timely manner. Thanks for your patience, and thanks to the members that have posted reports about the spammers.

  4. Hope everything is ok with him and his family, his health, etc. Going to temper my excitement for a while, as this could be one of a number of things. Certainly hope he makes his way "Home" one day, but that's at least a season away, regardless. (Took a hell of a lot of restraint to not do a little happy dance at work when I first saw the news...)
  5. Oh God, I clicked it... Why.... WHY?? Oh well. Might as well get some Star Wars representation in here...

    Korean Spam

    Great, now all the ads at the bottom of the page are ads for ACTUAL Spam... Ugh. Even when we win, we lose...

    Korean Spam

    The truth is out there... Another round of spammers done, at least for the time being. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do to proactively keep spammers like this off the site. But if you report any post like this that you see, it will drastically increase the chances that we can catch them and get rid of them quickly. Permabanning a spammers and removing their entire posting history literally takes about 3 seconds. But unless one of the mods just so happens to be online when a spammers is, well, spamming, then we can't do much. Using the report tool will immediately send an email notification to all moderators, and usually Mabus or I can hop on within minutes to clear it out.

    Korean Spam

    KH finally embraced the youth movement, so most of us wound up 'modding in the minors or in Europe... I believe I've found all the spammers, and taken care of the threads/posts. If you guys see any more, don't hesitate to use the "Report" tool!

    Update: At Least 14 dead in Humboldt Broncos In Accident (SJHL)

    Friendly reminder that LGW is a politics-free zone! Keep the discussion hockey-focused, please. Plenty of places elsewhere on the internet to discuss any possible political aspects of this tragedy.
  11. Very sad to have heard this news this morning. Strader was easily one of the best in an often unbearable industry. Strader did the play-by-play for the Wings/Hawks Winter Classic in '09. It was originally supposed to be Doc Emrick, but he came down with laryngitis or something like that, and Strader stepped in. Absolutely made my day when I heard Strader's voice instead of Emrick's that day. The hockey world lost a giant today. He will be sorely missed.

    Just a friendly reminder that politics specifically are not allowed as topics of discussion here on LGW. Granted, that may be a tough line to walk given the nature of this story and the use of the Winged Wheel logo. But please try to remember that this is a Red Wings/Hockey based forum, and not a political one. Discussion of these groups' use of the Red Wings logo is welcomed and encouraged. Discussion of the groups' viewpoints, beliefs, values, presidential choices, etc, are NOT allowed. Posts such as these can and will be deleted swiftly. There are no shortage of political based discussion/message boards on the internet. One of those are better suited to that kind of discussion. Thank you.

    Eddie Olczyk

    Olczyk is arguably one of the most biased color commentators I've ever seen in any sport. The fact that NBC sports allows him to work on a national telecast when either the Blackhawks (and to a lesser extent, the Penguins) are playing is a flat out disgrace. That said, I absolutely wish him a full and speedy recovery from this. Hoping he'll be back for me to mute soon!
  14. At least we got the modified NTC for the final year, when we could possibly be sellers for Daley's contract... Not thrilled by this signing, but not disgusted by it either. I'm just concerned about the possible backlog of Jensen/Ouellet/Sproul if our 1-5 is healthy.
