<12:36:43> "Unknown from 208.167.241.185:42980" is now known as "GameTracker"
<12:36:43> "GameTracker" dropped (connection lost)
<12:38:03> "Unknown from 108.61.78.147:48155" connected to channel "Lobby"
<12:38:03> "Unknown from 108.61.78.147:48155" is now known as "GameTracker"

This is not 'spam'.
Spam is the act of sending or placing of unwanted/unsolicited messages or material.

This joiner 'Gametracker' is how Gametracker scans your server.

You have the option to remove your server from Gametracker at any time.

You may also wish to consider blocking the Gametracker scanner servers to prevent your server from being added again in the future.

GameTracker scanner IP addresses

Hopefully you will prefer to choose to stay.

"Open your TeamSpeak 3 client and click the "Bookmarks" menu at the top of the client and choose "Manage Bookmarks." Select the server you want and in the bottom left corner, click "More." Uncheck the "Show ServerQuery Clients" checkbox. "

Thanks caboom420.

I had forgotten that the information is contained here Common TeamSpeak 3 Scanning Problems under the heading 'GameTracker scanners showing up in server'

Apologies for not including that information earlier voodoolights.

Thank You for the infos. I decided to delete the server from GameTracker at least for the time being will probably add it back later.
Thank you guys again for the reply!
