I have noticed more and more people coming here to spam the boards about how to get a FREE iPod, PSP, Nintendo DS, Robosapien, etc. and I would like to make some points on why it is a waste of time.

1.) It is against the Guidelines & Rules.
2.) We have moderators here that delete the posts within minutes of it being posted.
3.) I have never seen a spam post have more than one view (This is the view the spammer made when they posted it.) before I or one of the other moderators delete it.
4.) The post is not here long enough to get indexed by Google or any other search engine to make the spam site more popular in the search indexes.
5.) All of our forum members are educated and are not going to click on the link anyways.
6.) Your account gets deleted and banned right after we delete your spam post.

So, if you still want to post spam after reading the above items then you must not have a life and I feel sorry for you. Also, the moderator staff here would like to thank you for take away a few minutes of our lives while we delete your stupid waste of time posts.

Thank you spammers for your time and I hope we never see you again.

Sincerely,

cnc, while this is nice and all, do you really think a spammer is going to read this?? not likely, the spammer is one of those great individuals, who will see a forum, and automatically post whatever spam neccesary ignoring all tos..

even when you sign up for the forums it tells you..do not spam, yet there are more spammers coming by to tell how to get a free mini mac and so on...

not to bring you down or anything, its just my 2 cents

I am positive they will not read this but I needed to vent after I deleted three spam posts this morning. biggrin.gif hehe...

It just amazes me that someone will register, wait for the confirmation email, click the confirmation link in the email, and then continue to post their spam. That seems like a lot of work to do to have their account active and post online for about 5 minutes.

Maybe some sites leave the spam online for a lot longer but I think we are pretty good at cleaning it up before anyone even sees it.

I can't imagine their is some type of program that would do this, since they have to click the confirmation email, so all the spam here is being done by someone physically going through the motions. I am guessing we are not the only forums that they spam on also. Don't they have anything else to do? If they don't then I have about 20 things they can help me with that I don't have time to get to. tongue.gif

Sounds exactly like me a few months ago...Too bad it didn't work so well either. Good try though.

Besides, you get made fun of here later on if you spam

We should post their email address online and spam them with hate email. They spam us we spam them back. Imagine 100 emails with dancing monkey attachments within! That'd be teh awesome!!111

The problem is that they probably never use the email address they signup with to post the spam, so they would never get the emails. They usually have a hotmail, yahoo, or some other free email address they use that is something like yayspam010192@hotmail.com.

So, that just made me realize that they go through the effort of signing up for a new free email account also before registering here and going through the process just to post spam. What a waste of time.

PENGUIN SMASH!!

I have an idea that would work if it wasn't against the law. Find out their real adresses somehow, and send them a real lifetime supply of spam.

*tear* The spamming little ###### spammed my thread, he shall live no more!
Be warned spammers you wreck my threads and I ruin you, I torture you until you can be tortured no more then I continue to torture.

dayko, sometimes i think you do stupid crap like this just to make people mad...for once just read something all the way thru and dont ask questions...

what you just did by asking "what is spamming" in a spam topic is spamming...
dayko
i did read it, is spam just advertising?
omega71
no...spamming is posting unwanted messages..which does include advertising, but spamming is also posting two word sentances, and junk noone else wants to read...its kinda like getting one of two phone calls, one call could be a telemarketer, that is spam...the other call could be a friend who just calls to go "hey" then says he has to go...thats also spam...see??
leto
Nope still don't get it, could you give me a site that translates that or something.

oh hi omega how are you, would you like to buy this desk I have
mascott106
Oh. My God.

Dayko, do you have some kind of amazing ****ing pop up blocker that blocks bannerrs too?!
