Re: more and more spammers

It's sadly part of life now young zach,It's a living for some and a scam for others,if you want global cheap access then we have to put up with some of it.

Re: more and more spammers

I'm not sure you can do it with the platform this website is built on, but on a lot of blogs (ex. many in the the SBNation family of blogs) there is a 24 hour waiting period after you join the site before you are able to post. This seems to discourage almost all spam.
Just your typical waffle-loving Canadian.

Re: more and more spammers

The truth is we have not gone without spam for a while. We're getting it every day, and usually a couple of times a day. It usually gets deleted before too many people see it.
With the way registration works now, you would think it would slow down the spammers. You have to enter a code that changes every time someone registers, but the spammers don't seem to have a problem with it.
The 24 hour idea wouldn't work since most of the spammers don't leave spam the same day they register.

Re: more and more spammers

They really came back with a vengeance during the night.
I have a theory of what type of person the spammers are.
During the weeks around Christmas we didn't have any spam. As if they all went away.
Could it be quite a few spammers are actually students in college spamming from their dorms?
(I'm not saying that the typical college student is a spammer)

Re: more and more spammers

Great....I'm starting to see a new type of Spammer now. Spammers who actually try to be relevant to a legitimate post.
I saw two yesterday, and one this morning.
