Just want to welcome all the new members to t2w.

There has been a noticeable increase in 'newbies' of late and reminds me that good times are around the corner.

All the clue less, system testing, idiotic people who are asking "what method makes me income", "i dont use stoplosses because i am confident in my trade", and equally stupid beliefs.

I look forward to making some good money from you guys in the months to come because without you newbie losers I'd be up against the banks and hedge funds.

Long live the newbie!

Thanks for the warm welcome. Question for you, what's the difference between money and good money. I'm not sure if my money is good or bad. I don't want to give you my money if it's not good. Please help.

Can you show a statement that you are taking monies from the noobies, or is it more of a case the banks taking monies from you ?

I think a lot of these new accounts are multinicks. So they are old hands making new attempts to beat the banks.

Has T2W been invaded by Chinese spammers asking questions like 'Is Scalping really helpful?' or 'For the trading decition'

It's becoming a real problem. Thread after thread.

Hi all,
Yes, I've noticed it as well.
I suspect it's a tricky one from the Mods point of view because they don't want to delete genuine posts from people who may be greener than a very green green thing about the gills and for whom english is not their first language. It would not be in keeping with the ethos of the site to penalise a new member on those grounds! Equally, the point at which such posts become vacuous, pointless and / or descend into spam is likely to be different for each of us. However, I can say that I will remove them from the staff generated threads (i.e. FAQs and stickies) which is where a lot of them reside. You could always try reporting them to see if the Mods think they're spam - and then they'll deal with them accordingly.
Tim.
P.S. I've moved the thread to the Feedback forum.

Tim,
How about adding an extra step to creating a new username, like those images with embedded numbers that you have to type in (forgive me the name of that escapes me). It would only be needed when creating new accounts and not every time someone signs in. Once the bots have posted the site is then already clogged up (they often multiple post nonsense). The mods can clean it up later but that's not being proactive IMO. The idea is to keep them out in the first place, as best as possible.

Yeah, we had the image with numbers before and they seemed to get past that, hence we switched over to a simple Q&A verification. Unfortunately now it seems like they can get past that too. I've switched us back to the old system in the hope that the technology has improved in the meantime, let's see if it makes a difference...

I'm not surprised that the technology can be beaten but you have to stay a step ahead. PIA of course. lol. What I really don't understand is how it's worth it for the spammers to get through all the bells and whistles just to make a few posts before getting removed, no matter what site they are spamming. :confused:
