    Exclamation - a warning - used by Spammers

    we just had a mass posting attack at PlanetSuzy in Music

    over 500 pages, around *300 new members spamming, with
    the same IP and same email

    and most likely the reason everything slowed down here
    and other sites, due to server overload is a Spammer's Paradise, all their comments to the contrary

    YOPmail - Disposable Email Address
    YOPmail provides Temporary and Disposable Email addresses to protect you against Spam. Stay Protected always!
    while it looks like a proxy IP was used,
    we made a request at PlanetSuzy to
    use the software to ban

    a quick survey of usage there of it is
    around 1400 used it to register

    of that, only around *300 did any posting

    so you do the math

    would be a good idea to ban it here

    just our two cents

    Thanks for that, I've blocked all there alternate domains as well on a gaming forum I run, the spammers tried registering but couldn't beat the security question. They are still hammering it but it's not even letting them get that far now
