  • How Do They

    How do the spammers enter spam so fast - today, at 3AM they entered every minute of the SAME thing. I tried to counter this AM and the site would not let me enter the same post over and over. Each subsequent post has to be different. How do the spammers do it.

    "bots" jimbo!
    "bots" is short for "robots".

    It's a programming thingie.

      jhjimbo- If you go to your profile and then to account, you can put them on the ignore list and you won't see their posts. I have 27 "bots" on my ignore list right now and add one or three every day. If you have trouble, PM me and i will try to help. I had to make several tries before I got it right.

        I've got probably 40 on my list and had 400+ posts this morning and still lots of "spam" threads.

        They change their "handle" a little and keep going.
        I've blocked:
        sdsds23
        sddsd223
        etc, etc...

        I've got this Thai crap showing first out on the "Shotgun" section but is not visible when I click on the title

        "...บใบรับรองโรงเรียนที่ลงทะเบียนของคุณจากสถาบันการศ.. ."


        I've got several other section with spam as first out.
        Guess I ought to be glad I at least can't see it! LOL!

          I know how. That only blocks for one person, does not help the entire site.
