Spam Here

Postby FedoraRefugee on Tue Feb 10, 2009 12:56 am

What do y'all think would happen if you opened a forum just for spammers? :mrgreen: Think they would use it? Then we could just ignore that forum. I wonder if most of them are just bots, and if so, think they are smart enough to find their very own forum where spam is welcome?

Boy, I'd like to get my hands on one of these sleazebags...I hate spam...

The spam is going up for two reasons. There is more traffic in this forum than there was a year ago, and there are more people that just can't resist clicking on the links. As long as people insist on clicking on the links the spam will continue to increase. More clicks, more spam. It is very simple.

Spam targets are dropped if they don't return clicks. Remember that when you are tempted to click on one of the links. I know, nobody wants to admit they click on spam, but if it wasn't happening, the spam wouldn't be increasing.

A! A very good idea FedoraRefugee, :)
One Dollar sent to root at linunxmint for each entry would pay the bill. :lol:
I would be glad to read all the spam in that case.

@fred
You are right, Fred. But suppose Husse charges the spammers a buck per click :) Pay a buck or be deleted :lol: How about it?

Cheers,

npap,

Great idea, now if we could just figure out a way to get them to actually pay! :-)
