Icon12 Subsim War on Spam II

Just a quick update to inform you that over the last three years, we have been pretty good about killing spam here with the diligent help of ucrank, Sailor Steve, and Jimbuna, and many sharp eyed members such as cdrsubron7, Skybird, TLAM Strike, joea, Oberon, Lucky Starr, Hitman, Nippelspanner, seaniam81, raymond6751, Chad, Pisces, Mud, CCIP, guntherprien, Rhodes, Sniper297, HunterICX, ReallyDedPoet, d@rk51d3, darius359au, Kptlt. Hellmut Neuerburg, Trevally., u1950, Tango589, Schroeder, Vendor, in_vino_vomitus, kraznyi_oktjabr, gi_dan2987, gap, BossMark, volodya61, BigWalleye, BL!TZKR!EG, Admiral Halsey, Aktungbby, depthtok33l, Sinkmore, ikalugin, Pigmachine, Pigboatcook, thegrindre, and Relmu.

I try to make sure each spam hunter gets recognition with the badge,

but if you report a spammer and I do not award it to you, don't be shy, PM me.

Was discussing spam busting tactics with some other forum admins, and one told me a funny story I thought I would share with you.

Something that did amuse me no end recently, I installed SMF on one of my domains to test something out. I forgot to delete the installation and didn't revisit it for around three months. When I returned it had a thriving community of bots mostly extolling the virtues of a Canadian pharmaceutical company. The number of users, threads and posts were in the thousands. There was more activity there than on some of my forums.

That's all they ever wanted ..... a place of their own.

Sorry I'm late to the party;I picked off another within two minutes as I first logged in this AM. I think he's a regular offender...

I was a mod on an old nation-simulator game board, when the game wound down I stupidly didn't lock everything up. I came back a few months later and the place was infested with the sods. I had to go through and weed them all out and lock everything up.
I renamed myself the 'Gardener' after that.

Here is the whole (old) story, we were two... Paco and me...

http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...hunter&page=15

Well, bad tongues would say, it had to do with where we come from

Oh, and please don't take that avatar away from me, Neal. I'll keep it in honor, if you don't mind.

And, it's a one-of-a-kind.
