    IDK, I rather like the idea of just collecting all the links in the SPAM posts and DDOSing their webservers. ...not that I would ever endorse that...because that would be illegal...yes...

    LOL! Simon is one of our Alumni Staff and one of our oldest members. Maybe its a good thing you don't have delete/ban authority. DOH!

    Honestly we have plenty of moderators that do a fine job at sniffing out and expunging the spam that gets posted. Its usually gone well within a few hours.

    Back in the olden days of the interwebs, this is exactly what a group of us did. In fact, several of us were using SCO Xenix systems setup only to feed them spam emails and they would then run a dos attack on the offending host. It was great being one of a handful of people connected to Mae West (the major west coast internet backbone) at the time.

    It's true, the format of his name and his sig does fit the spammer profile. I just had to bust your hump a bit.
