Heya, welcome! biggrin.gif

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God. The stars died so that you could be here today. ~Lawrence Krauss

Whoooo, now that is what I call really clever spam software. JasonOne is a spambot that searches for related items to topics around the web and makes automated posts that appear relevant but actually are only there to promote websites through the signatures. I'm going to leave 'his' posts up so other forum admins can find this information more easily.

Pretty friendly for a spambot.

I wonder what possessed its writer to make it use so many heart symbols?

Signature spamming is the new trend. It's pretty sneaky. Every time Google works out a new way to filter spams from the web, the spammers think of something new and forum admins get newer and more difficult things to try and filter.

I suspect that humans are being used to create at least some of the spam these days, although it's possibly only creating the accounts on forums and the rest is automated. There is more money in internet spam and fraud than the global drugs trade, with an enormously lower chance of ever getting prosecuted, so it's becoming quite worthwhile. Then again, with the amount of money going through the system, I'm sure they could hire coders to get around any security checks. It's really quite annoying.

Yeah, and it's also pretty difficult to make a captcha that stops the bots but is still solvable by most people. Sometimes it takes me about 3 attempts to figure them out :/

Believe me, when I see the hoeplessly inept scams that still manage to make a pile of money... Well, it makes me deeply regret having morals.

Yeah..

So what exactly is illegal about spamming? I always just thought of it as a bunch of annoying off-topic posts.

It's illegal to spam if it's to promote something
