I would suggest doing that if this continues.

Unfortunately, AOL can't stop him from browsing/trolling public websites.

However, if he's e-mailed or IM'd anyone and used offensive language, or solicited you....then report him to AOL because he has then violated his member agreement.

Cut and paste, or if your version allows, save the IM conversations and any e-mails he sends you.

If he is just in general annoying, just block his screen name on your AIm and list his e-mail on your mail filters block list.

I notice he's already been "warned" several times today... apparently he's already ticked off more than one person, and that's just today... Enough people do it to him, and AOL can permanently do something about him.

Is THAT where that came from??? I just closed the window-- it came in sometime overnight.

Has anyone all of a sudden started getting "hey-cutie-check-out-my-webcam!" porn spam IMs lately? I NEVER used to get them, but now I'm on SOMEONE's list. Gah!

He's still at it, and is dumb enough to say where he got my info.

I've warned him twice today. Nothing overtly sexual, just bothersome.

Unfortunately, I haven't dropped in here in quite awhile, so I missed this warning... :roll:

Same here! So it's not just me, then. And all in the last few weeks. There has to be SOMEthing AIM can do about it.

And I used to open them to warn them too, but by the time I do, they're already at 100%, so it's a fairly pointless exercise. Gah.

ive come across a few that were really low... especially really early in the morning... i was asking a couple of friends about them and they said that theyre linked with chat rooms... only problem is that i dont frequent chat rooms... but i do have aol as my web server and i know that if someone on my account is checking out internet porn under their screenname (namely my sisters boyfriend - who uses her screenname), i'll get a whole bunch of porn spammail since im the account holder... maybe it has something to do with that... who knows...

Goodness yes! I have been getting a TON of them! Of corse I block and warn all of them.

Yep, I have a room mate that surfed porn under my user ID so I now am gettin SPAM porn in my email! I also had my search engine default to one that searched "adult content". I thought about getting a filter on my computer, but my provider charges $25/month for it! Now, nothing against sexual content, but I prefer to go after it, not have it come to me!!!

Cusefan,
You might want to search for a virus. If your homepage has been reset, that usually is a KEY indicator that there is a virus. so are pop up windows and sometimes unsolicited emails.

As for an adult content filter, Try Net Nanny. =)

Ladies you can also alleviate and in some cases eliminate SPAM, pop-ups, that come from you or others on your account visiting web sites....

Clean out your cookies!!! These are the files that build up on your hard drive each time you visit a site.

Also if you set your cookies low....it should filter a lot out. If you put them completely down, you'll be hard-pressed to open most web sites, even that aren't adult....

Has it specifically started lately? Like I said, I never never got them, now I get them ALL the time. And the only chatroom I've been to is on JDate-- I don't think there are too many trawlers there. If there were, I'd be getting pop-ups for mohels and homemade gefilte fish.

Yes, it has been in the past week or week and a half. I don't frequent ANY chatrooms other than the guild forums and the Vixen's Den that just opened and is private forum.

moira

Do a search of all files and folders and type in cookies. That's the easiest way I can tell you to locate the file on your computer. Then just opne the file and delete them.

BTW....Has anyone e-mailed Alison our webmistress to make her aware of this situation? Perhaps she has a solution. I know Mage on the IBRSC hunts people down for this stuff and contacts them directly telling them to cease. I am sure she can do something similar.

The Porn IM windows are mostly associated with Chatrooms on AOL. I know cause I'm constantly in one for my pusdo busniss.

As for AOL TOS, forget it. It doesent do a damned thing! It took them four months to finally get rid of someone who was harassing me everyday and everyday they got reported and blocked but found a way around it.

As for this person, Ignore them. Often sooner or later if AOL won't take care of it... they will get the picture. If not well, we can always have a lynchin!

You can also make your settings so that your computer promts you before allowing a cookie. This way, you can permenantly block them from some sites, permentantly allow them from others, and allow them only once for sites that you only visit once or twice! I can't remember precisely how to set it up to do this, but it can't be hard if I figured it out!

And he's still at it. He popped up on my screen today. Unfortunately, he picked the day of my sister's wake to do so. :cry: I took time to check the forum and confirm who he is, then gave him a virtual earful :rant: before blocking him. :twisted: Thanks for the warning. It kept me from adding another difficult experience to the day. :augh:

I'm so sorry. Ineffective but well-meant virtual hugs to you.




Good for you for venting on the guy, though. He has to know he's squicked us. Loser.

Thanks, Ysobelle!

I'll gratefully accept all the hugs that I can get, virtual or otherwise.

Apparently this is NOT the year to mess with me when I'm down. I'm actually very mild mannered, but posted my first ever rant on AFR when the Paladin tried to gig with me at a faire other than his own and while I was visibly ill....and now I went off on this loser too. Can't say I'm terribly sorry about either situation. ;-)

The warning here reminded me of a neat memory from college (in the dark ages). My dorm consisted of 3 converted brownstones that interconnected on the first floor only. It had a very intimate feel as a max of 3 rooms were off any landing.

Our telephone numbers, as assigned by the university, were in numerical order. Obscene phone callers would try dialing numbers sequentially throught the university exchanges. Unfortunately, they found a dorm of women who would have made great wenches. :evil: First room in the dorm would get the call, hang up, open their door and yell "OBSCENE PHONE CALL!" to the next room and to the first cluster of rooms in the next brownstone. The next room would pass the call up to the next floor of their brownstone, etc. Result was that obscene callers got a string of about 30 rooms in a row picking up the phone and then slamming it down, blowing a whistle or airhorn, etc. :lol:

Ah, for the good old days. :wink:
