Remove Spam Events, Don't Spread Them!!

There more and more people abusing the event system everyday, and it's just so they can get information, send mass messages, or worse: take over your account! So to make sure you don't aid these crackers you need to make sure you are removing the events, not actually doing what they want you to!!

You can go to the event itself and scroll down to the bottom and click on remove from my events, but do not do anything else on the page, do not respond, and especially don't click any suspicious links or send out invitations to others, that's how it spreads to such a large amount of people!

If you have email event notifications enabled, you can do it straight from your email!

Either way it will pop up a confirmation with the ability to ignore all invites from the person who sent it. Which might be a good idea if you don't know the person!

So help reduce the spam events by doing this and spread the word to your friends, with your help you can greatly reduce the amount of this garbage you see. People just don't know any better, so inform them!!


  1. its also good to mark them as spam too :)

  2. Ya, definitely report the event at the bottom of the page as well! But you have to hope enough people do it.. for some reason I havent seen that remove things in a while! otherwise those damn change your faceb00k layout bastards would be gone!!



I will no longer be directly publishing to this site! I have purchased a .com address and have a new site and a blog software to go with it! So check it out and update your bookmarks!

If you follow me through NetworkedBlogs on Facebook or Google's "Feedburner" you don't have to change anything! I have already updated the feeds to publish from the new site!

Links to the new posts will be made here by an auto poster, but that will be the extent of the attention given to this site.
