  • Spammers?

    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed the occasional odd comments by new users on here. The “Elk scope” question in Whitetail Hunting up above set off my spidey senses somewhat, especially due to the imbedded link.

    New users keep popping up with odd screen names but they don’t seem to be hammering the site like what was happening with F&S. Still a couple slipping by the filters over there, especially the one in the Bowhunting header. Not much traffic here so little to be gained but maybe it’s a good place to test their capabilities.

    Doubt anyone is minding the store here, it’s going to suck if the firewall gets breached.

    Wow fitch270!
    I never even noticed the "link"

      Saw the link, didn't click on it. Flipped a coin. Heads- he was wanting us to pick one of the scopes featured in his link for him to help him choose. Tails-he's trying to sell us something. Either way I gave my standard answer in case anyone else was wondering.

        Anytime one of those links shows up without some explanation of what it is I automatically write the post off as spam. The question itself wasn’t suspicious other than the comment about his previous thread and it actually being his first post. Weird.

        Anyone running a search for the same thing might run across it so some input wasn’t wrong at all, I just figured I’d point out the questionable stuff as well.


        Edit; the other red flag is when there’s no follow up from the OP. Seems to be the case so far.

          I didn't see the link either, but he referenced his last post...post count 1.

          Something ain't kosher.

                I'm surprised that new people can find this site. There is no link from the main page.

                  Maybe we're not supposed to be here. Maybe we are the spammers.

                      Last time I had abyss, doctor gave me a shot of "Combiotic" and some stinky salve.
                      Cured it pretty quickly but I wasn't very popular at social functions for a while.

                            If he ain't kosher, does that mean he's anti-Semitic?

                              Mr. Rogers? Wouldn’t think so.
