Did you guys just move up in the search rankings or what. Suddenly the spammers seem to be hitting you pretty hard! :shock:

(of course the should have been "You're Getting Nailed Lately." English as a first language is sometimes difficult for me)

spam hits here i definite waves, it maybe certain terms that get posted i lately added the seo forum and that may be a reason, although i dont think its much heavier than usual

That's seems to be working pretty well. Thanks for the tip!

Might be that Ed was left to find for himself for a week or so. You'd be surprised how much we catch before you guys even see it! The ones you report we jump on quickly as well so keep doing that one and all. You and gentleone are have a keen eye for spam I must say :)

I''m new to the forum and thought this was to funny. I've had a Russian bride for 12 years and she'll be the first to tell you that Russia is the spam capitol of the world. We also use to get a lot of spam from Jakarta and China.
My wife would check the stats on our business site and I would hear her say...uh oh, hits from Russia, we'll get bombed with med emails tomorrow and sure enough we would.:lol:
She took our email addresses off out sites and put an email form on with capacha, she also deleted the regular infor@, etc and changed them.
Our med spams went away but she still gets bombed in her yahoo account but most go to the spam box.
She found that most of the spam coming from Russia was from Sibir, a little north of Perm....she would say...hot dang, so cold up there who would go there and try to stop them.
Great form.
