Blimey - spam is going mad ATM.
Good luck in solving this mods - it must be a nightmare dealing with these idiots.

Ban the IP this particular round of spam comes from & they will just set up another IP address to do the same thing

- Ban their main web-page from the internet & they will lose income/publicity/online contact details.... that might make others think twice about spamming.

Five pages today, the thing is its early in the am when they hit us so obviously abroad and in this particular case India allegedly.

We try and deal with them when they join as some make it obvious but others not so.

Sales pitch: http://www.molvibaba.com/

They're hitting EVERY site there is.

....Unfortunately no online contact details otherwise every member on here could bombard them with fake enquiries & tie their staff up in knots- it would be good to see how they like it!

I'm getting loads of false likes from these bots (or what ever they are). It's getting ridiculous.

Yup you are not the only one. Not sure how they are getting through the validation process now. I will contact Deathrow to see if there is anyway of beefing up the validation process even more than it is currently set to.
