My own boat website (unadvertised here for a reason) still gets spam from spambots on a regular basis. Not a big deal to clean up under word press but it as a testament to the spammers/dickheads tenacity who initiate such fraud.
Sometimes people only join to ask one single question and forget about this place as well.
Active members. Gee, I guess I am getting old...

The sky is definitely falling.

Chicken Little

I am UP for shaving my head... you still got the girls

People do the strangest things spam does seem to be a lot less now i hardly get any apart from the shops that take details when you buy an item like a laptop and they want your postcode, house number,email etc guess it has become business spam for me anyway...
