This is pretty hilarious.

Wouldn't it be better to find out how these spambots are getting in rather than stopping them once they're already inside?

Agreed.

Whoops, forgot to follow up sorry. :) Yeah both PMs are gone now. Also just curious, why not repost the links? Like it hadn't even occurred to me but if it had I would have thought having the links there would be more useful than not?

The people who do this sort of thing do it partly to spam so people visit their site but also because of Search Engine Optimisation. If you can get a large number of disparate websites linking to your site you get a higher rating in Google.

That's why spambots frequently fill out the member information to point to their site too.

If you make me an admin I can ban them myself. I promise I'll be good.

Or I'm sorry Snail, I misread what you meant.

I thought you said, "If you make me an admin I can ban myself."

Which made me think, "Boy what a nice fellow, taking initiative like that!"

:lol: :yes:

Oh sneaky. Ridiculusly complicated, highly annoying and fairly pointless in the long run, but sneaky.

And another one!
Quote from: MoviezzBazee
Hello! Recommend you watch this movie:

Newcastle (2008)

Description: 'Newcastle' is a coming-of-age/family drama/surfing movie. 17-year old Jesse lives in the shadow of his older brother Victor's failure to become surfing's Next Big Thing. Even when he's in his natural habitat of magnificent surf breaks, his blue-collar future is brought home by the coal barges that constantly line his horizon. Jesse has the natural skills to surf his way out of this reality and onto the international circuit but can he overcome his equally natural ability to sabotage himself? A momentous weekend away with his mates that includes first love and tragedy leads him to discover what's really important, and also to the performance of a lifetime.

IMDB Rating: 5.80

You can download this movie on your PC, IPod, PDA! Enjoy!
