Default Spam much?

What is the actual point of most spam?

So I could have the useless task of ridding dog chat of 10 pages of it this morning. I wish I knew, I don't see the point at all.

I don't get it either, I mean aren't most people going to flat out ignore it? Hard to believe they actually get productive hits or profitable ones from spamming forums and annoying members?

I wish we had a better system for blocking spammers from even creating accounts. Are they actual people or bots? Maybe we can have one of those little captcha things or whatever where you type what you see in the box when you are creating an account and have it set where you can't post anywhere else until you post an introduction in the introduction forum. Won't rid us of all of them but it may bring the volume down some.

My friend who owns some kind of internet company pays people to join blogs and post with the link in their siggy. They have to actually have some knowledge or interest in what they're posting in and partake in actual conversation, but obviously if someone in a very small start up company is going to bother paying people to do that, it works.

Most of the spam you guys don't even see! It gets caught in filters that tag it "moderated" and are only visible to moderators -- probably averaging around 1000 or more in a 24 hour period

Most of it -- lately -- seems to be pirated designer knock-offs and the spam seems to be running through the same places customer service calls get routed to

And then there's the pointless stuff from Netherlands Antilles

Some of them bury the links in thread titles, etc. I have no idea what the point is there.

Nikes uggs jerseys. Lobotin or something shoes,. more uggs, Cealis or some kind of drug, more uggs, more lobotin shoes, purses, more nikes. more jerseys foreign languages of who knows what, and poor Wellington Boots a lady i accidentlly banned that even tho I apologized never forgave me, has no idea, why her name with no info made me think she was more of the same. I would not buy nikes or jerseys or uggs (tho I do own a pair because someone gave them to me) or any of the rest of it, out of pure protest for spammers.
