    Those posts are made by spammers. They post arbitrarily, targeting any thread that catches their eye. They are not targeting your threads specifically. Their only goal is to post the same message as many times as they can before their profiles are deleted. Once they are identified those members are removed along with their posts. if you check your threads you will find that the offensive posts are gone. The only evidence of the spam is your own post quoting it. You can ask the moderator to delete your quoted message, that way your threads will be completely sanitized.

    This is happening regularly.They target the first two or three in the line and post objectionable and obscene material.At my request two were booted out by Chenniya. Now I reply with an alphabet say K and it disappears from the main display.This is an unfortunate development and IL has to take it up seriously.

    I delete them promptly the moment I see them. I may overlook them at times. This is when I seek your help. They do not target any specific member.

    I guess it is time to fix some criteria or some background checks while admitting members. May be the site itself should turn to safe and secured site.

    I understand it is a spam and they can do it again but I am more worried about being hacked as my email might have reached them. In my opinion, just deleting the offensive posts and kicking out the member may not be enough because they may enter by other name and identity. This site is shown as 'not secure' and each of us here is at own risk but the site has to consider this also.

    I agree with you about that. I'm not sure why Indusladies hasn't switched to https yet. It is fairly straightforward to obtain an SSL certificate and install it. Without it all communications on the site will remain insecure and open to interception.

    We have got SSL certificate and installed it for quite some time. Forcing the HTTP requests to switch to HTTPS is having an issue given the complexity of URLs within the forum structure. We are working on the same. Thanks.

    @Gauri03 & @HariLakhera

    Indusladies site is now fully secure! You can see the padlock sign displayed in the browser next to the URLs and all the requests in the site are switched to HTTPS requests.
