Lots of SPAM

Recommended Posts

That could be quite a few spam posts with that many logins. Either someone has lots of idle time on their hands or it's a bot. Either way, I really dislike spammers!X(

Worrying - where are No.s 2-to-20, and what are they up to?
They are clones, and the Computer is their friend ... shodan.gif

Actually, one good thing about spambots is that they dredge up interesting old threads that I'd completely forgotten about.

This is where one can see the connection between SPAM and a DoS (Denial of Service) attack. SPAM is a DoS attack. If a DoS attack is illegal (YMMV), wouldn't that also make SPAM illegal. Food for thought.

SPAM or UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email) is illegal in the US but it doesn't stop some of the world's worst spammers from operating from there.

Seek and destroy beetles have been released, but the spambots are numerous. I've changed the Q&A verification and added email verification for any new users. This will probably also hinder some legit new users, but seems necessary now given our opposition.

Triff.
