Toledo Tech Events is getting a LOT of spam venues with spam events, all on Feb 1 2018.

See http://toledotechevents.org/venues - the newest venues with clearly bogus names. 

I’ve deleted some by hand, but it takes a long time because you have to delete each event, one at a time, and then the venue.

Is there some setting that can be made to stop this? Could someone go into the back end and get a list of events on 2/1/18 and delete them all? Or maybe there is a “delete venue” feature that deletes all of the events at it at the same time? When I try to delete a spam venue now that still has events, then nothing happens (I used to get an error message like “cannot delete a venue with events, delete the events first”).

Are there any keywords that could be added to the blacklist?

These seem to be “casino” and “gambling” spam events. So adding those blacklisted words might help in the future.

But that won’t delete the hundreds of spam events and their spam venues that are already in the system.
