The Trouble with SPAM
kerbanika registered his handle this morning and proceeded to flood Cranky's with four Spams. Another person, Stephen (not verified), attempted to post a link in his anonymous handle, but was unsuccessful, as it led to a broken Yahoo address. The site is slow enough without having to slog though all this Spam.
It seems obvious to me that Cranky's is drawing the spammers because they want to raise the search engine profiles of the sites for which they are Spamming, and Cranky's as it is now set up provides an easy way for them to do that. As you are aware, the way to raise the profile of a site on Google and other search engines is to have as many links as possible for the site whose profile you wish to raise listed on other Web sites.
- Revoke Kerbanika's handle.
- Ban Kerbanika's IP address.
- Trace Kerbanika's IP address to a physical location and have him whacked. I know some people who know some people..... Failing that, get that retard into a class for people learning English as a second language.
- Place a ban on new users posting links for the first 30 days of their Crankyland membership.
- Make it impossible for a non registered user to post a link in their anonymous handle.
- Please do what you can to speed up this site. I'll bet the slow speed of New Crankidonia is costing you many potential registered users and viewers.
Thanks for listening. I appreciate what you do.
