Burning Man isn't about the stuff you see when you get there ....it's about the people that brought that stuff there

BLAM... Burned like old celluloid in an MGM vault fire.

It MIGHT have gotten thru... except a number of flags went up.

One, it has a "Name+2 digit" name - almost ALWAYS a spammer. Then it's "website" was the same one it was adding for. But the clincher for me - It says it's from "Canada" but its IP is from India. >>wince<< 3 strikes and yer outtathere...

Thanks!

C187 -

I booted it to the land of the lost threads. Sometimes these things pop up again though. Like a weed with deep roots. Not as bad as the "Hyperinvester" though.

There was an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in which Geordie LaForge was "phased" and invisible to the ship's crew.

I wonder if phpBB has something like that. Where to the spammers/trolls it appears that their accounts are active and functioning, that their posts are created and readable by all. But in reality they are only visible to the spammer.

Extra points if spammers can see other spammer's posts.
