    Spammers

    HI,

    an old form to spam seems to become more and more interesting.

    Today, there were 3 new "users" registrations (I looked only for today)
    They all have russian "homepages" - commercial sites.
    It seems to be a bot. Take a look at their profiles:
    Code:
    About Jeffreycitte
    
    Biography:
        Man
    
    Location:
        New Zealand
    
    Interests:
        JeffreycitteKD
    
    Occupation:
        New Zealand 
    -----------------------
    
    About StephenMisee
    
    Biography:
        Man
    
    Location:
        Denmark
    
    Interests:
        StephenMiseeNB
    
    Occupation:
        Denmark     
    -----------------------    
        
    About WilliamCulse
    
    Biography:
        Man
    
    Location:
        Haiti
    
    Interests:
        WilliamCulseJM
    
    Occupation:
        Haiti  
    location = occupation, Interests = Username+2 random(?) chars.
    All contact info (AIM, ICQ etc) given. And their "homepage"...

    I think this is for google etc. they may hope that google(etc) sees their "homepage" links.

    I've seen this often now. First, some years ago. But it becomes more often.

    Is there any way to stop this?

    It will not help to ban them - their profiles are still visible.

    No exact search, but entering "1" as ICQ finds most of them:
    https://forum.pjrc.com/memberlist.ph...sername&order=

    72 new "Users" in june with ICQ *1* .. randomly viewed the profiles - all I saw are bots.
