spammers and why I should not think evil thoughts

This morning, I dropped into the site, guess what, been hit by a nice little spammer, who has nothing better to do, that join the site and spam away.

I came here to catch up on people, to have a moment, before I start my day, to read a bit on the latest that has occurred.

Guess that is a waste of time, as I have to sift through some jerks shoe advertisement. On a metaphoric level, I would enjoy leveling a flak cannon, on this spam and whip it from the board, but I suspect that the actual clean-up will take more than a few minutes.

So while I sit here, and enjoy my coffee for a minute, lets recall that that some @%%@(**&& has nothing better to do than visit!

Trust me, if I could direct electrons, I would focus 10 to the 6th power of volts, at your IP, I would gladly fry your modem and all the switching gear in your place.

Cheers - see yah! C458

EDIT or DELETE as you wish! Not amused, and I know you all are not either!


  • im not amused either, very annoying

    there was another one a few weeks back, did the same thing

    Why would anyone want to spend even a little time to create havoc on a web site?
    This emily003 blasted our site with a bunch of nonsense solicitation in so many posts.

    Its easy to block that person from trying this again.

    The clean up is a longer process as your identified.

    I am in the process of riding those posts.

    Dont those spammer folks have any better to do? Do they get pleasure out doing those stupid and annoying things?

    I was able to track down the IP to someone located in China.

  • Let me just remind the members that if you see the now infamous "anonymous" as the last post in a thread on the right hand side and it shows that there's more than one new post, there's probably a real post before the spammer (that's now named anonymous), so please don't forget to check out that post. The OP is still looking for feedback or answers.

    Many of the threads this spammer posted to were old, but for the new or newer ones, please make sure that the new posts before the spammer hit are read as a service to the OP.


    PS I'm with Centurian on sending a gazillion volts of electricity to the IP of the spammer to fry all their equipment.
  • for cleaning up that crap so fast. You guys really do stay on top of it. I don't miss being a spam chaser at all... LOL

    Someone in China is getting paid to do this just to generate more hits to someones websites. Even if only for a few hours it gets the search engines busy and so on.

    I'm with Centurion. An Electron IP Blaster would be a cool product. IP Blaster = $$$$. Knowing some scumbag spammers computer just went up in a blaze, priceless !!! :-)
  • I so agree!!! When I came on, and saw on old thread that I recognized, thought cool, maybe the OP has written an update or something. I was confused by the anonymous thing, but after checking the first post was totally annoyed that it was a spammer that the team had already deleted. Thank you!!! Boy, this was a doozy though!!
    APROUD CANADIANveteranButNOTa doctor, my thoughts are my own
  • Most times when I come out of chat, I have a look in the forums to see if anything new is there. What did I see? 4 (74 posts total) pages of 'emily003' and her crap! When I see a zillion posts seconds apart, it's pretty easy to figure what happened.

    It just bites that it bumps all the recent posts down, and it takes a while to re-sort out those threads of interest. Sigh.... Good job ridding us of her garbage mods. :)

  • Plus to make matters worse - there is software to help them post spam really quick - so they don't even have to type it out.

    China IP are very very hard if not impossible to track down :(

    In my opinion as a person who works online for her living a lot of spam is due to other websites that TELL people to come to forums and post their link and such and they claim that Goggle will "rank" them better. TOTALLY FALSE Information. However a lot of people believe it :(

    and then I am sure there are just some jerks out there who do it because.... (shrug)
