thats an understatement, i feel like I'm being stalked by a psycho or possibly a ten year old, i kind of think it rather sinister actually. i followed it and was asked to download software to prevent porn site i visited to be viewable by another party, my wife (if i had one) i guess. yea, sure!! never got past that point, as if i would download something i know nothing about from someone i know nothing about for no reason at all. I think it goes to show how stupid SOME people can be, on both sides f the fence.

the real problem is he keeps coming up with different names or as first time using so he could just continue this until he grows up or whatever, goes to Asia on a paedophile tour., who knows.

the boys are probably quietly on to this though and if he or she is in the States, England, Australia, or a country like that .., he will die!

i heard (saw) on a tech forum yesterday that people are making up to 7 figures (money) for putting malware on people's computers without their permission, so there is big money in it,

or just small thinking, one ot the other.

i wonder if it is an automatic script or just someone on the hunt??

maybe he doesn't like Maya??

he just keeps popping up like a bad smell (technical term)

yeah,
this guy is really annoying, especially the "Regards" thing he always does, lol....
but seriously, if i dont want to look at porn, that means i dont want to!


especially if its just a virus, lol


anyway, why dont they just ban his IP address? that would work unless he lives in 427 diff. houses, lol...

i know this may b a bit labour intensive but is there a way to moderate the first say 10 posts of a member

meaning that their post will notcome up instantly and will b checked by a mod

i think thiswould deter most as whos gonna bother that much but i may be wrong

i have seen this on another forum but cant reme where

just an idea though

i wonder what he has got against this site, or he is just (or she) is just spamming every forum he can find, as i said it can bring big bucks, or he is just 'showing off' to his friends (bunch of losers) all i know is my computer is crashing very badly since i followed the link and i am completely reinstalling, err soon, (in case IT is watching).

Kurt man, dont get too upset, all the boys and girls here are with you. no problem there. (and this idiot WANTS you to be upset, so dont be, annoying yes but...)

he must be getting a kick out of this post eh ? the more energy we put to it, the more this parasite will suck it on it.., (technical term)

We need to setup some kind of activation link or something. Like when you make an account, you need to put in a set of numbers/letters, that correspond to the image next to it. You guys know what I mean? Its done just for bots.

Strider, if it’s a bot, why hasn’t it happened before, I tend to agree that is most likely what it is but as I said, this is the first time I know of, so how, who, where from and why??
I tend to think forums will be hit more and more like this. Due to the improvement in spyware and awareness I think the people doing it will do the most hurtful thing, and that is getting people’s trust and where better than a forum.

Like I said, big bucks in it, simply for putting advert bots?? But this seems someone’s idea of fun.., ‘porn site’ ha ha ??

If a bot, how did the bot get there, through an attachment..?? and whose?? How to stop this, is it possible, is it worth it to make such trouble for the innocent for the sake of one idiot

Im in the same boat as Kurt.

The only thing to do is be vigilante, report the posts, and ignore the idiot responsible, he/she or 'it' will get bored eventually...

Cheers

I'd also like to add, that also any SM user should also be aware that they could be spamming but indirectly. I deleted a post from my own thread of all places.

Somebody made a comment about some similarity with my work and EMO, ending with a joke (which was all fine) but then a reply came saying ' I love your comment'

Hmmm? yeah thats constructive....not, so please guys engage the thought cells before replying. It will help keep the crap out of the forums...

Cheers
