I have a forum, internet forum that has not been active for some time. Last week I decided to resurrect it so I cleaned it up and opened it up for registration.
Since the last time I used it the cyber waves seem to have been overrun with ‘internet spammers’. These strange creatures seem to dwell in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc, with a fair proportion from China.
What they do is register on your forum and leave a link either in their profile or in a message they post. The link will probably point to a cheap Viagra site or a sex site. What gain do these morons get for their efforts I ask, apart from being banned immediately with there IP address listed with spam control sites.
The internet is a wonderful thing but it doesn’t take long for the scum of the world to begin infesting it.
