    lol reported him but seems like no mods online. Seriously, I feel strange that spammers wont even leave Pro Forums where most of the audience is experienced and no love will be shown for spam. Oh well, if spammers had enough brains left, they would be doing something better rather than spamming.

    Yesterday's spammers are today's toolbar owners.

    Thanks for the report, I IP zapped him.

    So spammers still try it on after they've read the Terms of Service (TOS) for AWB

    They don't last long Peleman, longest I think over the past 8 years is about 12 hours.

    Spammers just do keyword searches, don't bother to read where they land, and just start posting hoping no one will notice. Sadly some are taught to do this by some self proclaimed internet marketing gurus that charged them for the privilege of make fools of themselves on the net.

    Welcome to ABW, Peleman!

    I see this is your second vote for AWB, so maybe it's about time for Haiko to register the AWB domain too.

    I thought I was the only one with many votes for AWB, but after searching here on ABW, I just discovered that, we're not alone!

    A for AWB, reveals that since December 12th, 2001, we have had 87 threads with the ABW switched to AWB, so now I don't feel that bad for the 11 times that I have made that same typo before.

    The average has to be closer to 15 minutes, though. Most spam only gets about 5-10 views before someone reports it and/or a moderator deletes it. Eventually, the spammers will figure out that it just isn't worth it. (Okay, maybe not - they're just not that bright - but it's a good thought.)
