I'm just waiting for someone with a grudge to report Frothers to the ISP for hosting all that hardcore porn that got posted. It's not like it was from spammers that time.

How come they are managing to register? - it defeated Winston ffs.
I thought I remembered having to wait to be 'accepted' by someone at some stage when I registered - not an onerous process if I remember, but was it, is it, all automatic? Or is there someone on the 'inside'!? :shock:

More intellectual class of spammer recently today :D : 'Where the Crawdads Sing'

You just sign up and click the link in an automated email you get sent.

Winnie probably made a mistake in his email address

That was before the latest attacks.

Which reminds me, DeannaNut is closing in on 2,000 spam posts.

Will no one rid us of this troublesome bot?
