Hey, Spambots!

| | Comments (5)

Quickly, over here: bob@y4569o.com

Got it? Good. Feel free to send him loads of his own medicine. I mean, really, after all, if you can't take it you shouldn't be dishing it out, now should you?

Is there a way to block this loser from spamming my site via his e-mail? If so, please tell me how? Because the bastard spams me daily, but from different IP addresses, so I end up having to blacklist all of them individually, and it takes up sooo much time. I know that she has the same problem, so all advice to us will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

The spammer on my site now has two email addresses... I've got all his (just assuming a he) comments awaiting moderation by setting up the key words that mean a comment goes into moderation. Tomorrow I'll be setting up a script (well, I hope to) that will allow me to mass delete (because that's my biggest pain).

Ugh, so sorry you're getting hit too...

Honey, it's not a real email address. I'll block "bob" in your spam list so no one by the name of "bob" can comment.

If you use mt blacklist add this (minus the words modern and princess):

\bbmodernob@y[^\s.]princess+o\.com

It will block all of the ariations of his email address and thereby blocking all of his comments.

I had the same problem, and trust me, this works!

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
