Spammers Wall of Shame

Recommended Posts

Programs can be written to post on every thread on this site at once. This happened tonight, and I am starting a Paint.NET Forum spammer wall of shame, where the names of such people can live in infamy. The founding name on this wall will be.....................


I encourage anyone else who finds a spammer to put their names on this thread, and I will update the list here.

Honestly, this thread is rather pointless. One, spammers generate random user names, so it's not like you're really calling out anyone in particular. Two, as you mention yourself, spam is usually posted by an automated script - I don't really think you can embarrass a few lines of PHP by putting the user credentials with which they were programmed in a thread. Three, spammers are dealt with pretty quickly around here, so even if it were a person laboriously hand-typing out the details of their beautiful silk scarf offerings, they'd be blocked from seeing it shortly anyway.

I'm glad you want to do your part to defend the board, but the best way to help is to simply report the thread and wait for a mod to come through and wield the ban-hammer. ;)
