So they've decided to troll us with spam, eh?

General chat about whatever. Maybe we can bring back the awesome that was the Suite101 forum networking and advice we had in past years.

It's so funny that suddenly, when we get entre' into the TE forums, we start getting trolled on every post with Russian spam. Poor Suite. It's coming apart at the seams!

I think they aren't technically good enough for that, in general. Most probably it's a spammer crawler following the recent blog posts linking to this site, and just spamming.
The moment a forum is known by more than 3 people, russian spammers find it.

It's just every day spammers. I try my best to kill it and I have a couple friends who kill it sometimes, but sometimes we just get hit. It's mostly from russian proxies. As much as Indians take slack for being spammers, I've only gotten 1 IN domain spammer. The rest are mostly russian, chinese and pakistan.

So, if anyone proxies to get here and uses one of those IP addresses, I might accidentally ban you. Just PM me if I do it.
