When you use those links, where does it reveal the spammers are coming from???

The FBI arrested the spammer who was responsible for about 1/3rd of all emailed spam! You can read it here:

Usually overseas, generally in Europe.  Their domain names have been giving them away too lately.  I mean, someone with the email address of bill@viagrainfo.com is a pretty dead give-a-way.

If Stan checks in sometime, maybe he can ban the following IP addresses-
 
212.117.178.169
 
92.241.169.160
 
72.229.251.243
 
91.201.67.5
 
These are repeat spammers.  The first one has several registrations under different names in the last day and a half.

I don't know if I can figure out how to do that -- but I'll take a look at it.

Unfortunately, this forum technology won't allow the banning of IP addresses. It can only ban user names. :ballchain:

Stan has done it before when I've given him a list of IP addresses.
