Way too much garbage is hitting the forums

Thread needs solution

The amount of spam coming through is excessive, including nearly 100 postings today (5/23) from one garbage user who is also sending multiple private messages as well.

Somebody needs to go through and get rid of these phony forum accounts and remove the garbage messages.

As a company devoted so heavily to cyber protection, I'm not feeling safe even looking at these forums now.

I was thinking the same thing. It is now extending to PMs.

Think it is time to only look at the forum when running a virtual machine ......

+1 - far too many scam accounts being allowed without proper moderation or action!

I would like to remove the junk messages/conversations from my private messages but I cannot find how to do that. Is it possible?

Not possible as far as I can tell Bruno (have a few pages myself!).

It would be a useful enhancement if we could delete spam PMs.

Forum moderation appears to have been discontinued and no one at Acronis cares that spammers have taken control and can post whatever trash they want without any action being take to stop them!

Hello Everyone,

please accept our apologies for the recent mess on forum! I've cleaned up most of the posted spam comments and blocked the reported accounts. The issue with moderation has been fixed for the new topics, but not for the comments - a web developer has been assigned to look into the issue with the higher priority.

 Currently there is no way of deleting the dialogs, but I've added a request to implement the option SOD-58 [Forum] allow deleting private messages.
