SPAM flourishing at the moment...why?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is there anything we can do about the spam that is rapant at the moment? Can you guys install some kind of encryption thingy (read the letters and enter them) or have you done that already?

FOR SELL is getting obnoxious, and the format is always the same, so I think it is the same group.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

I'm already using IP banning.

They're sneaky bastards, those spammers.

Thanks! They seem to be rather persistent characters.

I'm surprised Vbulletin doesn't have some kind of Bayesian filtering.

Mail.app would have no problem dropping all those F/S spams.
