Mamas been busy with the button!
When I logged on this AM it looked like our forum was spammed pretty hard but all I could see was their tracks. Mama done gottum all. Thanks Mama.
It has been terrible. Im shocked Mama has sprained her button finger by now.
These spammers are all retarded anyway. They think that we actually read their posts! Let them post away - one click and they are history. And we don't have time for them anyway. So keep ignoring them - we will win.
Do they make wheel-chairs for banning-fingers?
Mama- we luv ya darlin'. I'd offer my large hulking physique as bouncer services but somethin' tells me you don't need it!
aw Kev - you're sweet!
Guess me reputation preceeds me - ya wouldn't want to run into me in a dark alley!!
I may tie you up and force feed ya all kinds of goodies!! I'd make you Italian!!!
>>we're not reading it

fo all the nonsense, there's rarely a url to be recognized - some are embedded three deep. the random jibberish is meant to be 'invisible' - it's there to confuse anti-spam software. one gets the same gibberish in spam email.
until the spammer's business model fails, it can't be 'won' - it's an automated spam posting operation and they don't look once, much less again. they got a board url their script can auto-join&post - it will not stop until the spammer chooses to. they do not return to read the 'you dirty spammer you' rants&raves - it's a complete waste of your time - but that sort of 'management' can throw ice cubes on real world new members. few wish to risk being so blasted. I submit the rants&raves are actually counter-productive.
about the only know way to keep that kind of spam off the board is for a moderator to "approve" new member posts before they appear.
The whacko part about the whole idea behind the business model is this is experienced at a dozen or more sites I have spent regular time at over the last few years and the sentiment at all of them by ALL of the members was extremely negative. I can't believe those who pull this krap can think for a moment that it's a successful method. Are they THAT totally out of touch? What a bunch of misfits.
uhmmm, these spammers quite bluntly don't give a rat's-patoot about my, your or anyone's negative reactions. it's all about the money.
got a web site? you'll right regular gets offers to improve/increase your search engine results. welcome to the wonderful world of professional spammers. these guys are different from the newbie's who's just discovered the internet and wants everyone who cooks to come visit their earth&oven shattering blog. there's most often no inkling of 'cooking' in this kind of spam - a web crawler has id'd a site, by software version, where their autojoin&post scripts work - their accumulated 'target' list runs to the thousands. I've seen 'abandoned' sites that are nothing but 100% spam. site's active, no one is watching, virtually every post 'post abandonment' is spam.
the more often a url appears 'on the web' the 'more higher' it gets ranked. one example, there's many. all the jibberish is intentional - it 'conceals' the url to be spread far and wide. I rather suspect the html would work 100% spot on when posted to a newsgroup, for example.
I rest my case:
