There's just not that many spamers who are into jolla
It seems like you haven't seen the comment sections of the Jolla Store.....

It's worth noting that Google's CAPTCHA probably now serves no purpose other than tracking users and data mining. It's useless.

What is really fascinating is that with all our talk of spam monkeys...
it seems the little vermin have realized that we are trying to exterminate them however we can from tmo...in all our discussions on the topic...
they have subsequently upped their game and are now poo flinging !
I think war has been declared on us actually....
In fact quite a taunt....

I found a new spam thread which had been tagged with " spam--- vs. tmo "
http://talk.maemo.org/tags.php?tag=spam---+vs.+tmo

brazen I must say...

Whether this is simply a rogue monkey or is part of a larger spam monkey poo-flinging armed movement...
I am not sure...
But there are quite a few spam posts today...
which makes me wonder...

Where is the electrical feedback when you need it?
I don't mind the smell of burnt monkey fur....


I also just noted that the other spam today was also tagged with " spam--- vs. tmo "

I am curious as to who exactly is doing this...
and their reasoning ...
if a legit member found a spam post...they would report it..
not "tag" it....

interesting..

Sorry endsormeans, but I had to remove that post. I saw the tag. But I don't think it was done by that person. If it were, then I agree. Brazen. But in the end, can't keep that trash here.

In the last days i was reporting various spam on TMO.
Always it comes from new member with one message.
It seems that they found a way to pass the captcha

Yeah, that's their modus operandi. Some badly spelled username and zero posts... I see that and I start the waiting game. I know it's going to be some ********.

Exactly. When you have a lot of posts in the database the single search query makes some load on the system. Multiply it by hundreds of spambots doing dozens of search requests per second and your forum is dead.

Back in 2008 I was fighting with multitudes of spambots registering on my forum evading the captcha. Then with the little help of the almighty google I found out that the text question (e.g. "Write the name of this website: ") is much better than the picture captcha.
After adding it I could confirm that it really is.

There are numerous services allowing you to bypass the captcha with the help of Russian or Indian students, e.g. http://antigate.com/
