Spammers are the lowest form of scum on the planet. I spend
many hours a day, hundreds and hundreds of hours in my
lifetime, removing their detritus from this and other
chatboards I monitor. I craft filters to block their spam,
but they change methods as quickly as one is blocked. Valid
posts are often blocked because of this.
If I could elimate one country from the planet - N1geria - 95%
of this crap would disappear, and few would miss them. I
apologize for the aggravation, but know you can't be as burnt
about this as I am.
If you can, when you spot spam click the "report this post"
red link on the side, and I promptly remove new reports and
block the latest spam patterns. Every little bit helps.
