    Default Spammers!!!

    Most of you probably haven't noticed, but in the last week we've been getting bombed with spammers joining GCM.org - 15-20 per day. At first I thought it was just because I've been trying to delete them and block their IP addresses as fast as I could, and was making them mad.

    But I started checking, and it is not just us - many other forums are getting hit as well. Here's a discussion.

    I'd say 90% of the spam is coming from ISP's in Russia and the former Soviet republics. Why? BTSOOM!

    So - if you see a "new user" listed, and they suddenly disappear, I got them! LOL!

    Your doing a great job. I have not seen any of them.

    I do wonder how they know about my short comings? Can you do anything about that?

    Sometimes we forget what goes on behind the scenes. Bruce does do 99.9932187234% of the new membership approvals and deletion of spamers in the process, as well as sending out welcoming emails to the new members.

    Kudos to Bruce for doing all that!

    Yeah, I'll add my thanks here as well. I haven't seen a darned thing.
    Oscilating between remarkable brillance and sheer stupidity with amazing regularity.

    !4 mre spammers. That's incredible. Do they really think that anyone will pay any attention to any of their crap? Except the grwth cream.
