It's been awhile since I've lurked here, but man! 300+ messages of spam
on the Cabal board? Has this been happening a lot?

its in cycles, they must spam a lot of sites in quick succession as their details aren't in the spam database. Usually its just 3 accounts in the same day and we need to purge them and all their posts.

This little event has led me to ask the question: Does spam work. There are more than a few
articles related to that question on the internet but this one pertaining to Cyberbunker and
Spamhaus is particularly interesting:

http://arstechnica.com/security/2013/03 ... haus-ddos/

It seems like Spamhaus does a noble service but appears to use some heavy handed tactics. As
in the "you don't agree with us so we block you" tactic. Is this the list you use Spud? Or is Spamhaus
only related to email spam?

P.S. Sorry for posting the thread in the wrong forum. :oops:

P.S.S. I just read this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=20495&start=80

Now I see the problem. And it looks like it's a problem with no good
solution:

Yeah, that's a bit of a problem. Lot's of attempts within a 24 hour period. Also,
it's interesting to google those IPs and the first hits come up as links to StopForumSpam's
reports on those IPs.

Bad naughty wicked IPs. :matrix:
