Who are these @sshats and can we get them kicked?

This is ridiculous... Spam ticket adds elsewhere.... Come on Mods/experts! Get ahold of your buds and get these jerks a free ticket back home in the gutter.

Probably somebody that got kicked off the board.

Actually, I don't think they are people who got kicked off. If you look at the sender profile, they all just joined in the last few days, usually on the day they started flooding the board, so says to me they're getting by the sign-up process procedures to stop that kind of thing. I had a discussion board on my midi website. After a while, I stared getting spammed on that, so I applied a sign up procedure with an image that the poster would have to type in the message in the image -- an early version of the typical method now (but now they have random images -- much better). Anyway, it didn't take the spammers long to get around that.... I finally took down my discussion board, Got tired of trying to keep ahead of the spammers. Those were mostly for cheap drugs and such. It was a pain in the a$$.

It's done by spambots, they scour the net for forums and infect them like a virus.

I just checked my watch. It says today is Thursday... Not on a weekend... And now we have even more spam... Im thinking that the weekend has NOTHING to do with the junk here. In fact, If we had a savy webpage sysop on the system these spambots would be filtered out and/or removed and deleted off the forums by last weekend. And if a pig had wings.....
