We appear to have gotten a new community full of spammers, offering us things like cruises, and cheap medication and viagra.

Now, I like these things as much as the next person, but it leads me to wonder if these inept spammers actually ever get anywhere with it.

Is it ever a successful approach? Anywhere? Ever?

Oh, and if anyone spamming (on the off chance that there is some human interaction in there), let us know why you do this annoying thing. I may not ban you*.

Like all other forms of advertising I ignore, SPAM email is double deleted and never opened, junk mail goes straight in the recycling and phone calls are either a) hung up if its a machine or b) told to bogoff if its a human (I'm sorry I know people need to work). Adverts on websites are blocked.

I have no time for any sort of advertisement telling me what I need to spend my money on, I can spend it quite easily without anyone's help.

I can't figure out why it's so hard for these spam bots to post comprehensive posts that actually make sense. The ones posting on here are just a random string of words and links.

How did they program a bot to get onto forums and post but fail at posting in sentences?

Who cares!!! My girlfriend thinks the same with me. She- is three years older than me, lol. We met online at an film blog site [w w w.a f r o f i l m v i e w e r .c o m]---a nice and free place for Younger- films and Older filmz, or Older movies and Younger flickz, to interact with each other. Maybe you wanna check out or- tell your friends.

I've added reCaptcha security to the sign-up process now, so this shouldn't be a problem moving forward.
