    Actually I saw that and thought that hotmails.com was a redirect for hotmail.com. My mistake. I wonder how MS lets them get away with that. They’ve gone after grandmothers in the past over domain names.

    ditto – it would appear that spammers, casinos, cut rate drugs have common ties …. hmmmm

    I don’t get any. :(

    Can a blog’s popularity be measured by the amount of spam that Akismet catches?

    ;o)

    Maybe they’re trying to tell you something. :)

    It’s been suggested the number of posts that you make determines the amount of comment spam you get. Spammers sit on something like blo.gs’ Newly updated list and use that to send out feelers to see if they can post to a site. I don’t know if it’s true but that makes sense.

    Of course it would make “sense” to blog-sucking sychophantic parasites [she muttered as Bruce Coburn’s “if I had a rocket launcher” came to mind].

    Any way to get rid of these pests without a resort to violence? I have one guy – whose IP is always the same – who’s constantly trying to post his ____ on my site!

    Probably not. I’m sure Matt and staff could block the IP address but I don’t think that’s going to happen.

    Look at it this way. All you have to do to get rid of it is a quick scan to make sure it’s all spam and then a simple click on the Delete button.

    Blocking IP numbers won’t do much of anything. I have a ProBoards forum and this evil twat keeps on coming back with new IP numbers. I’m pretty sure I know who it is. Someone I know from a message board. :(

    Agreed but blocking does help. You should see how many attacks and spam runs I see stopped at my firewalls due to the deny list I have.

    The guy who’s bothering me has never had a different IP – diffrent email and websites, yes, but the I.P. is the same.

    It either comes from Virginia or Australia on my ProBoards. A while back someone from Texas was bothering me.

    I’ve got a former client of mine in Midland, Texas who I booted who still causes me problems. TimeWarner won’t deal with him either. Going on six years now….

    TABINDEX is the new one that’s been coming at me. Why would someone sit out there creating hundreds if not thousands of comments that don’t even link to something that could even make them money. I mean, I’m annoyed at spam that exists solely as mass advertising, but I understand the motives behind that. This other kind of spam is just electronic graffiti.

    The same thing? I met the person at an IMDB message board where all evil exists. I haven’t said anything. Kind of like keep your enemies closer type of thing. They’re probably reading this now. lol
