Amazing!
« on: November 02, 2016, 09:36:59 AM »
As we approach the three year anniversary of my adding this forum my website, it's astounding that not a day has gone by following the first month, that spammers have not attempted to add their garbage to this board.  Most attempts come from the former soviet block, China, or southern Asia. I assume that ISPs outside those areas are more intolerant of the people who want to pollute the internet with their unwelcome spam. I will continue to monitor this forum daily to ensure that spam doesn't remain up for very long when the spammers actually do manage to find an ISP whose internet addresses have not already been blocked by me. I apologize to proxy users who attempt to use the same ISP as the spammers when they find access blocked because the spammers have been there before them.

I've reached the limit of my patience with Spammers from the Ukraine. The spammers themselves are probably not even in the Ukraine, but are merely hacking into internet servers that are located there to cover their tracks because safeguards to prevent such abuse are limited or completely absent, or because the servers have intentionally been established to act as proxy servers in an unregulated environment.

So from this point forward I will work to block any and all internet traffic to my forum that uses server addresses assigned to any UA address. Forum members using UA addresses will see their membership privileges removed. This will also block proxy users who are trying to conceal their internet activity by using servers located in the Ukraine, and I apologize for this. Proxy users can thank the Spammers and SEO idiots for their non-stop, unwanted activity.
