yes, its a big problem.
I lost a whole day working on the computer, writing programs and fixing data. I just want to kill someone.
I have my own site now but when I shared a site with a few friends we got hit hard. Turns out it was through some scripts that had been written for the guestbook. I am now finding, even with my own site, that these dicks can make a fake e-mail address look like my e-mail address and use it to write to other people and visa versa (if Viagra actually sells even 10% of the people these f$%$#@ spam I can say I missed a golden investment with Pfizer)...I use boxtrapper and spam assassin and it catches about 99.5% of the crap but not all of it.
Personally, I believe that public, summary executions for spammers and hackers would solve most of the problem...a 365 day open season would solve the balance
, PM your phone number if you want me to have it and kill it off the public site
JHM2C, of course!
