Spammer at the archive...

Hi all,

Yesterday we were visited by a spammer who left about 74 spam reviews for stories of our members. Some of you reported it immediately to us and when we got the chance, we suspended the account until further notice. The situation is now under control and the spam reviews are deleted, also thanks to the prompt alerts received by a few of our members.

If you ever notice spam on the site, please report it as soon as possible to the moderator team at so we can deal with it before it can do much damage.

Unfortunately these spam attacks most often come in the form of spam reviews on stories, but can also appear in the contents of a story. If you notice spam content anywhere on the site, use the "Report This Link" found beneath the review, or story, or email us directly at websmith@lotrgfic.com. The faster we know about a spammer on the site, the faster we can lock that account to prevent further damage.

Thanks!

On behalf of the MPTT moderator team,

Rhapsody

I saw the spam review on my phone but by the time I could take a proper look on the laptop you'd already killed it. Very fast mod team! Thank you :D
