Spammers are such idiots
- Incase you are one of the ones that has protested about having to fill out a form in order to get to be able to post on softrockradio.org below is an example of the spammers and their auto-robots and how they deal with the form;
- I am a cold fish.
One guy claimed to be an Italian ham that lived in China, and had a Chinese mail post office, but I suspected the application, after checking a APRS site I found the real ham was in Italy at the time, an email brought no response.
The stuff I have to deal with to keep your innocent eyes from seeing adds for porno sites and Viagra.
Thanks for the comments on the Spectrum Lab mailing list, and for
this classic example of spammer mentality::>
I might suggest that you misspell some of the words in your form as
well. When I write to a prospective member of the Spectrum Lab list,
I spell it 'speektum labs' for instance and ask for their Hamm
Raadio' callsign. A human reading this knows what I meant to say, a
spammers computer replies with garbage or doesn't respond at all.

questions and what they ask occasionally, some spammers have noted
their failure and corrected their next attempt only to loose out
again, after a while I hope that individual quit trying. One more
trick I will be adding is questions with invisible text attributes, a
human does not see it or answer it, a bot will be too stupid and
answer the question. It's all a little game children play except I
have put a lot of work into the site and by George they are not going to win.
