New method of spam? - Gottfried - 11/27/2010

See the couple of last anonymous registrations; for me this looks like a random entry at math-skill-level and then only a signature linking to some website (lawyers, for instance, or "black jack"). Let me state frankly: I'm already getting to feel uncomfortable with that growing crowd of anonymous "members" which come in like an unending november-rain and do not anything to make this place a comfortable and constructive place for discussion of concepts, implementation and problems of tetration.

One does not need membership/socializing if one wants only read/check/be virtually present at what others do.

Do "we have" the members or do the members (attempt to) "have us"?

I think its still the established form of spam, but it gets more and more.
And methods of checking e-mail address, IP and name (this board uses the list of http://www.stopforumspam.com) can be circumvented.

I also keep the policy of not deleting members, that didnt post but also have no signature or other advertising. Perhaps one day I should prune all older 0-posters.

What about the member racyhall11 ?

It seems that this is a new type of robot, which produces msg's by copying excerpts from some manuals/online-dictionaries selected by some mathematical keyword. See the three posts this morning.

Hey, I am a bit slow in removing spam bots.
But this technique is used already by previous bots.

Hmm, how could you say this given the anonymity of the internet?

racyhall11 is banned (missed)?!?!! woww! but... why? because racyhall11 is pirated due to "copy" of manual or of other site - mathematics?
