    Default Rent must be due soon....

    It seems that the end of the month brings out the spammers. Do other forums experience an increase in spam as the month draws to an end or is this just a figment of my imagination?

    I was very proud the day I received my first "make money online" spam comment on my blog. That's when you know you're really a "someone".

    Now I'm 3-4 someones a day.

    I think that one reason is that it has been a couple of "website submitters" uploaded on a few well known BH places..

    A few email scrapers hit the market too, so I guess it's time to start hide our emails harder

    They seem to come in waves, I like the ones that actually try to stay on target with relevance to your site though.

    I agree that spam has been on the increase, and personally, the "magic" spammer that I wrote about in a different thread although they have slowed down a bit, is still the single most active spammer that I see on a daily basis spamming me to a very long list of email accounts both gambling and non-gambling related.....

    Since they are promoting a Top Game property I doubt anything will ever be done about them.
