New wave of spambots?
« on: December 06, 2012, 11:17:59 AM »
Has anyone else noticed how many new users with names made of seemingly random strings of characters we've had lately? Are these things spambots? (I assume they are being deleted, since I never see posts by them, due to the 2 post minimum).
I don't pee messages into the snow often , but when I do , it's in Cyrillic with Fake Viagra.  Stay frosty my friends.

I see a spambot RIGHT ABOVE THIS POST!   :bigeyes (Sorry, I had to)

I haven't noticed a big uptick in them, but that's likely due to the 2-post filter.
Arguing on the internet is like running in the Special Olympics.  Even if you win, you're still retarded.

Been beating them off with a stick. They just keep coming.
Everything is edible. Just that there are things only edible once per lifetime.
It's a god-eat-god world.

Procrastination is the thief of time; Year after year it steals, till all are fled,
And to the mercies of a moment leaves; The vast concerns of an eternal scene.

I think we need a bigger stick.
Everything is edible. Just that there are things only edible once per lifetime.

And to the mercies of a moment leaves; The vast concerns of an eternal scene.

I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

Couldn't figure the right smiley face for said "little boy".



It's kinda funny watching the schlitz the sales
spams try to sell me.  I've gotten discount adds to :

sign up for leslian excorts (weenie  :rolleyes ... )
sheet music from the 1920s
weight loss "trick" from fox news (how the hell that got there)
skiing at Breckenridge
new Mazda SUV
Blimpie's

Look mr. spammer, I know you wanna sell me everything
but I'd really like to know who that insurance Babe who
believes you can't put any lies on the internet, is.
