    And even that is a big stretch of the truth.

    Fear not, based on the email addresses of the spammers, less that 25% of them use free email servers. Blocking Yahoo, Hotmail or Gmail wouldn't gain us much, and we'd have some unhappy people turned away because they don't want their ISP's email address in anyone's public record.

    I think the staff here is doing a great job in keeping spam cleared out, sometimes within minutes of it being posted. :thumb: :thumb: We've got some of the most dedicated mods here that you'll ever run across. :D And I have to tell you, there's some satisfaction in doing that, knowing the spammer is still on-line and he can see his spam disappear, or in some cases, never get posted in the first place.:wave: :wave: Naw, blocking those servers wouldn't help enough to make it worthwhile...

    I think you guys are doing a great job, to tell you the truth I have only seen spam a few times, and the next thing you know its gone.

    Keep up the good work.

    I don't see Hotmail spam either. It used to be so bad that I filtered out ALL Hotmail stuff. Now, I let it through with no problems.

    I rent my own server, too. Right now, I trap most spam with BogoFilter called by my email client, which works very well. Still, I think I will block those two Ips at the server and see if it makes a dent in the spam count.

    Thanks for posting that.

    I've never understood why so many badmouth Spam the food.
    I really like the stuff.
    Fried slices with eggs or in a peanut butter and jam sandwich on true sour dough bread --- smells great; tastes even better!
    But then I also like sardines occasionally --- much to my wife's disgust.

    I like Spam the food but not spam on my forums.
    I have to wonder about some of the new "flavors" of Spam they have come out with, though.
