is it possible for a fotopic comments page to be spammed so badley that its owner can no longer access it to delete them, and the only way they can be viewed is to look under the pictures as the same abuse has been repeated over and over again some of it is rather unpleasent-anyone else had this problem at all

If you have a problem just delete them or use the moderate settings.
I get a fair few but by not responding they soon move on.
If you respond then you are playing right into their hands,it's what they want.

Apologies for that. I didn't think before posting.

There is a question about fotopic comments in this topic. This is not a question of what 117305 has done previously. The topic has already been split once, final warning.

oh so 40-50 pages of repeated spam under pictures on my fotopic site is a joke then is it ,not so funny when it cant be removed bye normal means and even deleting 2 set of pictures does not erase the comments.
if thats someone idea of a good joke what does the spammer do for fun

Why not just disable the comments section on your fotopic site...
the comments are now disabled but sadley because of the sheer volume of spammed comments- i would guess around 500 or so pages! they cant even be accessed to be removed bye normal means ,so im hopeing that fotopic can wipe the slate for me with out eraseing my pictures
Even deleting 2 picture sets has not helped(they might go back in) i know i may have "cheesed "off a certain number of persons but it was not on what they did to my comments and pretty sad sitting there posting all that spam:confused:

Just go to 'gallery comments' and delete them then settings,'show comments under photo' and untick it then for gods sake moderate the comments using the 'gallery comments' moderation settings.

To be honest, I can't see any more source for constructive discussion here, and as the quarrel seems to have been resolved, I'm locking this thread.

However, if you think otherwise, do not hesitate to contact any member of RUK staff :)
