What's with all these SPAMMERS lately?


#1

Darn, noticing more and more spammers on this great DH forum.

i think it’s due to the holiday weekend… they have no friends or family, so nothing better to do while their neighbours are out having fun :slight_smile:


#3

Unfortunately they sit in rows and rows in foreign countries and get paid to do it… It’s called promoting “trending topics”… the goal is for the link to be here when the googlebot comes by… they know the post will be deleted, they just hope the google bot makes it here before they are removed.

please, trend my topic for a while! :slight_smile:

Links on most forums contain the “nofollow” attribute, so these shouldn’t pass value & spamming shouldn’t work, but that doesn’t seem to stop people.
