    While I'm genuinely (not even tongue-in-cheek) advocating such things, when these spammers come and despoil a forum and post their URL, aren't they concerned that someone might get a little fed up with it and DDoS their web site? Or do they just have so little nous that it doesn't even occur to them, or assume that no-one will be bothered enough, or an acceptable risk of doing business?


    You'd imagine, though, it would be relatively simple to write some code that would monitor the first few posts of a new user looking for the k-word and alert a mod. It's just a pity time has to be wasted on such things.

    its a continual game , measures are put in place by the Webbies , the spammers do a work around


    and DDOS would probably only prod them to do the same
