    My theory on the new spammers

    I have this funny feeling about the hit-and-run spammers we've been seeing lately. Is there any way to check thier IP addresses? I don't know why, but I think they might come from
    a.) the same IP
    b.) a block of IPs from a single domain
    c.) Russia
    d.) China

    hpHosts (http://www.hosts-file.net) might help.
    HASTA LA VISTA
    SEE YOU NEXT PROGRAM

    I know, it sucks but more needs to be done to try and combat this issue with scammers.

    As long as there are those that believe that they can get something for nothing, there will be scammers. Con men have been around since the dawn of time probably and will be here until people get educated start using some common sense. Aint gonna happen.
