Default spam bombs

Looks like spam bombs have been going off last couple days!
Do they really think a site called racing junk is going to get a lot of bites using ugg boots and louie v hand bags! As bait.

The little box you had to check before a post is gone. Could that have kept the spam bots out before?

I dunno Rabbit...I don't think so...that box was to accept Liability in order to make a post. Like I said in my other thread the forum configuration is still set up that anyone who registers has to type that Crazy Code ( Pattern) so its telling me a person is signing on ( best guess) not automation computer......so that being the case they could still check the box and make the post if the check box was still active ( again best guess)...all they are doing is copying and pasting their post to different threads..again another sign its a person cause you have to manually go from one section to another. ( common forum navigation to us all that have been here for any length of time)
It will be handled one way or another....I know of 50-60 spammer IP addresses that can No longer access the site..maybe they will get another computer or go somewhere else to post but they ain't coming back the way they came the 1st time...

I have no idea why an idiot would waste their time doing stuff like that. There has to be a reason they do it.

Anyway THANKS BJ.


Harbone shot the spammer not the poor dog. He probably doesn't like them either!
