    Just checked this morning and loads of posts by 'opmmolviji'. What's going on and is someone up to no good?

    Spambot. The moderators will take care of it.

    Only if you click through and follow-through. We kill them as soon as we notice them, but moderators can't be everywhere. If you see any, please report them -- that helps us considerably.

    FYI.... there are spam filters in place that catch most of these guys. But cranking up the filters to catch all would interfere with regular member posts. It's a touchy balance.

    Yeah some have complained about the filters catching their links or post too.... very touchy.

    I owned a forum website before. It amazed me how pernicious the spambots were. I had to lock down new membership sign up and personally approve each for entry into the site.

    I guess if they receive one click out of 10000 tries, its a win for them. Still fuzzy on what the purpose is?

    They might be happy with on in 1,000,000 tries...


    Here in Florida they just prosecuted some guy for a PhoneBot scam.... Bots call, if the person shows any interest they get a "live" person who "sells" them something that they really don't want or might not even get. But the details showed they didn't need very high success rate to make millions.
