Like shooting fish in a barrel - we have SPAM

Just how bone-headed are these mouth-breathing morons.

Here is a screen-cap of a typical spam attempt. Note the nonsense names and URL. Also note the standard (six in this case) four to six random characters leading the body of the text and then the wonderful: commentx-space-comma where x is an integer from one to nine.

comment_spam.Png

It was easy enough to write a line of regex to knock out the four to six characters, now all I have to look for is the commentx section…

What a looser. And of course, the IP address (69.127.17.232) gets put into the killfile so that system will never be able to access this website again. Teach that person not to practice safe hex… (Hello Cablevision subscriber in Hicksville, NY)
