Does anybody know how these spammers work? Do they get paid by the number of posts they create or by the number of replies they get? Seems like they all have their own little following supporting each other as the replies seem to have identities similar to the poster's. Certainly there can't be much money in it or there would be hundreds of them. Has anybody ever visited a promoted site? I haven't and I can't believe it's a very effective promotional technique. Seems like a tough way to make a buck.
I asked that on another board but never got an answer. Clearly it's the same person with aliases...the responses are all the same "Great report" "I just subscribed" "Gret job, mate" In some cases the site has a virus.
it is one person with multiple aliases to keep his post current and to look like it has been visited, I put all of them on ignore by the hundreds on every board I am on and eventually you slow it down but they just create new names. yahoo doesn't control it well
