Spammers

Recommended Posts

Uuuu, waitasec.

Another big spammer trend I just saw: All the spammers on this board were "born" on April 7th -- every last one of them! I suggest -- nay, mandate! -- that you ban all accounts with birthdates of April 7th.

Dale, whose birthday is...hey, wait a minute...

Dude if I'm still in the area on April 7 -- which I sincerely hope I'm NOT -- we are doing a double party. I will be 40, which means you owe me more presents than I owe you.

This post by this person looks suspicious.

Just what I was about to say.

Spam PM from Lyagushkka.

Edit: Another 143040 poster (with a join date after we had the disussion last time). If there's some way to set it up to immediately ban them upon registration -- there's *229* new ones since we discussed this, gosh, less than two weeks ago.

Fun fact: There have been 241 new members since the last 143040 incident, meaning there were, at most, 12 legitimate new members during that time. Ratio of spam to actual: about 19:1.

I that's the same ratio for the number of times the word spam is used in the Monty Python Spam Sketch vs. any other words used in that sketch.

I DON"T LIKE SPAM!

Lyagushkka has been banned.

Anna and I realize there are other issues that need to be attended to.

The fact is that the board will be upgraded in two weeks so it's hard to know how much effort to invest in banning certain IPs, etc. before the upgrade.

Thanks for your vigilance and patience.

What is toxic porn? Is that like, porn made in Chernobyl or something? Why would anyone want to do that? Why would anyone want to purchase that?

Total YACK

Heh. To clarify, "toxic" and "porn" are parallel adjectives modifying "spam." That is, it is toxic spam because it is porn spam. "Toxic" does not here modify "porn" because that would be tautological (as opposed to merely redundant). All porn is by definition toxic, but not all spam is toxic. Some is merely annoying.

Spam message from: MaryJohansan

I see that the member exists, but any posts seem to have been removed.

Sorry, it was a PM I received sometime over the weekend.

PS

Here too

or is that one not spam simply because he asks us not to delete it?

I have no idea what a "test message" is.
