          It's essentially a holiday weekend, we're all gone.
          In the time it takes me to delete 1 thread and ban the spambot who posted it, 4 more appear...
          so I decided to get back to my customer work.

          I have asked for help, we'll see what happens come Monday.

                  Reading the posts is surreal, it must be some sort of copy-pasta mechanism that sprinkles it's links into blocks of text.

                  In case some of you are not aware of this, NEVER click on a link from a spam. It may take you to a site that hijacks your computer and auto-installs malware on it. Bad idea.

                    let's hope the admins of this Forum can 'CAPTCHA' these bot-using cretins. In fact, am surprised such security is not already in place.

                    The term CAPTCHA (for Completely Automated Public Turing Test To Tell Computers and Humans Apart) was coined in 2000 by Luis von Ahn, Manuel Blum, Nicholas Hopper and John Langford of Carnegie Mellon University.
                    .....
                    • Protecting Website Registration. Several companies (Yahoo!, Microsoft, etc.) offer free email services. Up until a few years ago, most of these services suffered from a specific type of attack: "bots" that would sign up for thousands of email accounts every minute. The solution to this problem was to use CAPTCHAs to ensure that only humans obtain free accounts. In general, free services should be protected with a CAPTCHA in order to prevent abuse by automated scripts.
                    just sayin' and lÔÔk Ma!, no SMA needed! I believe it's free..............

                          what? 'Free' ? or no SMA required.? In either case, it foreign words to this locale, amigo.
