You seem awfully interested in the spammers. :whistling: Why worry so much over them? They don't hurt anything here, since we find them and shut them down very quickly. :blink:

Actually, some are people. They're hired for .50/day or some absurd amount to register and post spam at various forums and blogs. However, the recent rash of them have been script generated.

if you saw what they posted you'd know, things totally unrealted ot this site, advertisement! Such as wart removal treatment.....saw that one around here about a week back. If you saw it you'd know.
And we get them so quickly because there are mods, admins and people informing them that someone has posted spam.

But i have a question, i have seen mods post that a link is a pay per click link. I have been curious ever since on how you guys knew this.
thanx

a lot of us already KNOW which links are bad or pay per click. Also, many of us simply click the links in our VM or test machines. :whistling:
