Social Groups removed

Due to the high level of spam associated with social groups (in conjunction with the very low response to my thread asking whether they are used for any legitimate purpose) I have removed social groups from the forums.

“I’ll be back!” - Spammer Next Door.

It’s a shame they didn’t gain much popularity, but better we trim the fat and help reduce the spam! :slight_smile:

If we’re doing retro dances, I’ll do the hampster dance! :smiley: :stuck_out_tongue:

I think you might have been listing to “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)” by Baz Luhrmann too much:p

Yay! does the funky chicken dance!

Hasta la vista, baby.

We did the same thing on our forum recently too. Unfortunate we have to be so vigilant, and sadly the people who are spamming are usually hurting themselves and don’t realize it.

Hell yea! :smiley:

I was wondering when you were going to remove them…Before you mentioned them I never thought of them but afterwards I was always thinking everytime I went on to someones profile…HAWK still hasn’t removed these Social Groups, when the hell is she gonna get rid of them?! :eek:

Doo dee doo :rolleyes:

I was upset that ChessMates didn’t get much attraction once upon a time.

When she finally found the setting amongst the trillion other vBulletin settings.

Hip hip, hurrah!

Good riddance ! Never used it anyway.

Good move. I had joined a few groups, but there was never any action other than some spamming.

We had social groups?

lol :smiley:

Very few people other than the spammers ever knew that they were there.
