Something isn't right...

Something not right here....

Just been inspecting the plumbing down in the Evidence Locker, the last thread in there is nearly 24hrs old, only 5 threads moved there at all yesterday.....

...Checked back a week ago... 36 threads in one day, lord knows how many more deleted, one poster with 24 spams to his name....


I think *and hope* a corner has finally been turned in the war against the spammers, yay for us!


Although I'm sad to see my daily cheap thrills of Russian porn spam vanishing, some of those linked images were *interesting* to say the least


/and just as I post one turns up selling valium for dogs, oh well, can't win all the time!

Some were quite interesting indeed.

Knowing what DJ Egg did ... I am wondering how long it is going to be before the spammers figure out how to get around it? Hopefully that won't happen, but at the same time I can't see it lasting forever either.

Once the spammers get around it, I'm curious as to what the countermeasures were.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

Seriously. I have not seen so little spam since I became a mod here.

Not really, but my favorite thread title that sticks in my mind was ...'Clitmania' by our great friend Eraeenbun

Thank God Almighty, but there's still sales tax!

I'll PM you with as name for whom to make that sales tax cheque out to.

The mailing address will be included as well.

I expect payment in about five days.
