A note to the spammer who is attempting to post here
« on: December 15, 2014, 06:26:31 AM »
Hi spammer, I hope you can read English:
I don't know why you are trying to spam this forum, you are wasting your time. All your spams have been deleted and your accounts closed, so you have wasted hours of work. So you may as well pack up your bags and go elsewhere.

I'd opt for something emphasizing more the hero character, like "Mop Man", or "the Guardian of the Forum" ;)

Actually I see myself more like a Groundskeeper Willie type character! I'm not Scots, or have red hair, or have a beard ... but ...
I think our spammer is one of the more stupid instances of that species. An intelligent one would have given up by now.

P.S. I'm having to be quite drastic when it comes to deleting accounts and banning certain hosts and IP address ranges. I hope I don't accidentally ban any regular users, especially those from Russia, Ukraine, China and eastern Europe. If you find I've banned one of your buddies please let me know and I'll try to deal with it.

1) Groundskeeper is really tempting for a photo montage. https://www.google.de/search?q=Groundskeeper+Willie&newwindow=1&safe=off&rlz=1C1MDNE_deDE490DE490&es_sm=122&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=xWaQVNKqJpOUarCngfgO&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAg&biw=1600&bih=766
2) Even a spammer has his pride. I can understand his second attack, but wonder about the motivation for the initial one. Is it a sport? Guess he must have done it by code. Hopefully we mustn't switch the writing permission to one with captcha.

If you'd ban me, I 'd need to find a new hobby!

I think they are paid a small amount for the spamming they do, I presume they only get paid for the spams that aren't deleted so he's earned not one penny from here for all that hard work. The attack seems to have stopped for now, maybe mummy has sent him to bed early for being a bad boy (or girl)!
