Announcement (Posting SPAM)
« on: June 13, 2018, 07:34:36 PM »
If you post anything related to SPAM you will receive a warning. If you abuse this forum you WILL be banned. If you feel it was a mistake you can email myself or another MOD and explain why you feel you shouldn't be banned. If you become a problem your entire account will be removed and email will be banned. If you sign up with an account that seems like it was intended for SPAM it will be deleted immediately!! This is checked constantly and we are quick to remove anything that ignores our policies. Our whole system is built on verification so don't think making an account is a work around.

We will be removing a few accounts that seem to only be in place for SPAMMING or simply weren't activated. We are HEAVILY monitoring this so why bother wasting you time.

Thirty spokes are joined in the wheel's hub.
The hole in the middle makes it useful.

...the value comes from what is there,
But the use comes from what is not there.

Blocked two domains from even signing up. I'm on the edge from blocking an entire TLD. Wouldn't bother me at all.

We will now be blocking all domains ending with the .ru TLD (Russian Federation) due to SPAM and security concerns. We apologize for any inconvenience but until those concern has be lifted this is a permanent change.

Like this?

https://www.jdtechservices.net/robots.txt
i think so my browser opens up a text editor everytime i open a robots.txt at the end of a url
I'm assuming you're in a Linux OS (64-Bit) and using Firefox v61.0 which can be downloaded here to open the page? If so, thats odd. I don't see why a browser wouldn't just treat it like any other page.

Tried on Firefox v61.0 via Windows 10 Home (64-Bit) and it didn't do that for me.

EDIT: Ran test and added results.

I'm going to assume no. Mainly because it doesn't exist anymore. I can put it back if you want to experiment but I don't think you can edit files like that. Pretty sure its technically possible but only if something like JavaScript or PHP commands are performing the back-end edits.

All new accounts must be approved by an admin going forward.
