Campaign against retirement leasehold exploitation is under spam attack

Unfortunately, Campaign against retirement leasehold exploitation is suffering a plague of spam: with spam comments on the website, bogus sign-ups to our newsletter and attempts to break into the website.

This can affect genuine readers when their comments for publication do not appear and wrongly get dumped in the spam folder.

This has happened even to those using email / IP addresses that have been approved many times in the past. For example, both Chas and Dudley Joiner, who have commented many times, have had comments placed in the spam folder, which we have removed today and ensured are published.

So it is unpredictable.

We very much appreciate all comments and robustly defend the right of free expression within the law.

If your comment has not appeared, it has probably gone into the spam folder.

PLEASE immediately contact sok@leaseholdknowledge.com

The way to clear the issue is for us to approve a series of comments from the email / IP address so the spam filter recognises it as genuine. If people see comments just saying “test” we are leaving them on the site rather than deleting, to encourage the spam filters to accept future comments from the same sender.

Less relevant to users, both Campaign against retirement leasehold exploitation and LKP are getting 50-odd attempts to break into the administration every two hours.

 

Comments

  1. ‘Test’

  2. “Test – 2” My lost original post has now been covered by later ones adequately, so no need to repeat.

  3. “Test-3” All looks OK

  4. Campaign against retirement leasehold exploitation should ask its internet host service provider company to identify the source of the spam and ask the Government to block the source hosting company.
