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

Just in the past 10 minutes or so I've already gotten 3 spam comments, all on the same hub! And whenever I delete one, it seems another immediately comes up!I'm sure that when I wake up tomorrow (it's almost 1 in the morning now) I'll have many more to delete. Ugh, is there a way to stop these spam...

There has been a lot of discussion in the last few days about HP changing the rules and people being un-featured or even un-published for spam and over promotional activity. So I just want to add my thoughts......Whether people (writers) like it or not most of their traffic will be coming from...
