Rather interesting the choice of some of the names/online IDs that the spambots are using;
gregtumbas= the real Greg Tumbas is an instructor at the University of Colorado/Colorado Springs in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering
projapotimon1= Projapoti Mon is the name of a TV show in Bangladesh
rio999= leads back to a Russian tech & gaming site that has been inactive for 5yrs
dark99= has to do with computer gaming/hacking
Rather interesting combination, I'm especially interested in the projapotimon1 as it "seems" to be a 'spammer' that answers spam posts...
or letting that first blog/post sit waiting in moderation to be read and manually posted or barred from posting...
I disagree with the first idea Seb as other sites have anonymous posters without all the spam. I think the best idea is a probationary period, which a lot of sites do, where each post/blog is reviewed for a period of time before being published.
I few have creeped through but we are catching them and deleting as quick as possible.....hang in there everyone...it's definitely a lot better than it was before...keep posting your usual blogs and keep bringing spammers to our attention..we'll get them one way or another.
