    Angry Spammers...the scourge of all admins.

    Warning! rkb rant below...and help wanted

    Good grief...enough is enough! Has Vietnam had a sudden surge in the spam market? Has the "Spammer Market" made it to the International Exchange? I know people around the world need to work (and am thankful everyday for my job); however, with that being said....there has got to be something better for all these people to do other than throw their spam infected i.p. addresses our way and attempt to download their garbage onto our site! {deep breath ~~ sigh}

    Because of the recent influx of spammers, it is a real possibility I may miss one or two for a few I'm asking for your help. If you find spam anywhere in our site PLEASE let me know so I can delete it (and the sender). UGA has all the auto filters in place but these guys are entering individually by human means and individual i.p. addresses instead of auto-computer...don't know of a way to filter them out without human (me & you) intervention.

    We will keep this a clean site!! Thanks for your help.

    Ah yes, the VS, today's web version of the notorious VC. Like their ancestors they live in black holes by daylight and only out at night. It's best to treat all areas they infest with a heavy-duty disinfectant.

    I like Dr. UGA's prescription. If one dose is good, two is always better.

    Some years ago I grabbed the email address of a machine spammer. Now, when I want something from a site but they won't release it without a valid email address, I make up a name and give them the spammers address.

    Their machine recognizes it as a valid one. I get my stuff, and their spam machine spams my spam machine.... I guess until the end of time. Not as good a fix as Dr. UGA's, but, you know, my little contribution to the bad guys spam overload on their end.
