china what????

Post by pilvikki »

i was posting my usual spam list on uec when i screwed up and instead of the email address, i posted the user name: chinaboyzzz.

i've seen that enough times so i googled it and got "about 41 000" hits in 0.55 seconds. they were all registrations to various websites all over the world, and when i scanned through, all i saw were from 3 days ago or fresher.

damned those bots are efficient!

Yeah, it just takes a few seconds to make an account if you are a robot.

I recently installed the stupid question mod and a thing or two more, but it didn't stop all of them. We still get a couple each day now, but not the dozens we used to get. Have Deb or Will look into it. It may save you some work.

we went over that, will is going to move the whole works to another board, so it's just suck it up for now.

i tell you, that was enlightening though. this guy is in russia and he sells all kinds of stuff.

Selling is one tihng. Pushing it down my throat is something else.
