That was a whole lot of spam.

      I am getting so tired of their crap. The bastards actually brought the site down for a short time.

        Was that what that was? I wondered if they were behind that, couldn't get on a few hours ago.

      OMG, you're right, first page of forums is full of it (no pun intended).

    I like my spam with eggs, spam, spam, and eggs!

    I'm actually wondering if these are spam attacks or DOS attacks. I mean are they really so incredibly stupid as to think this will make them any money?

      A "denial of service" attack would appear different, IMO.  You would not be able to access the site at all.

        Twice (that I know of) in the last week I think they brought down the site for several seconds. Whichever it is, they are lousy at both. lol

    Did any one else have their hubfeed attacked? Mine was mysteriously and coincidentally filled with spam immediately after I posted the announcement to tech in the forum. I did not click on any of the spam posts. It was quite messy.

    The odd thing is that some of the spam posts earlier this week did not even seem to contain links that could be any use to them.

    Maybe they are just lonely. They don't want our money, they want our love. Maybe if we all clap our hands together at the same time, they will know they are welcome!





    How come I can hear the crickets outside?
    And now... I just want to go to bed. Good night ham lovers all over the world.
