I never want to see another Man-gina in my lifetime!

Isn't there someway to track where that post came from, and threaten legal action?

That is just horrible. I wonder how many family forums have had such attacks?

Unfortunately, I don't. I thought it was another Viagra Ad, so I clicked it to make a snide comment, and found some of the nasty porn I have ever had the misfortune to lay eyes on.

Check with whomever deleted the thread.

You know, the fact that you people respond to spambots probably contributes to them coming back.

1. Don't roll your eyes at me.
2. Ever notice that there's a little box you can click that says "NOTIFY ME WHEN A REPLY IS POSTED"? Most of these bots are all running the same software, and it's highlyplausible that the bots use this function to see if their spam is actually being paid attention to and that it increases the frequency with which certain sites are hit.

It was not an eye roll per se, it was more of a "look up" rather than quote the post... sorry for the mix up.

Also, now that makes perfect sense. I forgot that the option to notify of replies was even there!

I point this sign to myself and hang my head in shame:

Syd's definitely right. Hence why I myself never reply to any unless it becomes a silly topic due to a particularly hilarious response from someone else.

I think if you guys stopped replying to spam, then we'd be bombarded by it less. I mean, as it is there's 4 mods and an admin wandering around here so any spam usually gets deleted quickly, but still.
