yeah - i've given up my old blog on dotnetforums.dk completely as it's been overrun by spammers. each time i remove the blogs they return the next day (or next hour in some cases)..
but i have noticed something - since i haven't used it in some time the spammers have stopped messing with it.
Bill I've noticed that I have a repeating pattern going on. The same posts get hit again and again, so what I do now is, any post that gets hit, I disable the comments on it.
Good idea Sahil - appreciate it buddy.
If that's the case and some posts get hit more than others, there's a definite pattern emerging. The only true way to tackle it is to figure out the pattern, or just close comments on those that get hit more than others.
I truly don't understand spammers or malicious code writers. There is so much wasted talent on algorithms and automation that could be better used in other projects, but these dweebs somehow find comfort in using them maliciously. I don't understand why anyone would want to do that. I thought viruses were cool for a time simply because of the complexities but when you're hit with one, the coolness factor runs out the door and you realize that the people that do that kind of stuff are really childish. It's more annoying than anything else and that's the whole reason it's done probably.
Same here Jeremy - why not use your skills to make money instead of risk getting thrown in jail - jail is completely Overrated and getting paid to write code is way underrated.
I'm with Jeremyn this subject. I came across the same misspent energy when being on the teacher side of the teacher-student divide. Some students would put *so much* energy into making excuses and getting out of doing the work, that if they harnessed only half that energy into actually *doing* the work, that they would be straight A students.
Regretably, more and more of the trojans being passed around by code hacks and virus attacks are actually in the service of organized criminals. Some of which rent out time on infected computers for the purpose of spamming, or hosting p0rn or warez sites. So it looks like capitalism has conquered the trojan/virus writers.
