Or has Mac gone mad, I tells ya; mad?!:eek:

scarletpeaches

I don't want to know how. It's for the best. My head will explode.

Well, I need to go out now so I hope AW is still A-okay when I return but if shutting down is what it takes to get rid, so be it.

See y'all when this is over. :)

I think they should close the boards right down. If he can do this, there is no telling what he can do.

As a precautionary measure, disable emails and don't give out personal information in PMs.

Might be a good idea to delete your signature links and all personal info from your profiles too. Can't be too careful.

When I tried to join AW, I had to wait for an email from the forum, and it took like a week to come. I had to go to the main AW page and personal email a lady, who's name I think was amy, telling her that I never recieved that email and she very greatfully fixed everything up. Now why can this spammer join so easily, :( lol

Googled it. Pages of on the crap.

Blackhat is an ISP that enables spamming of forum threads. All you have to do is sign up for it. I didn't read far enough along to see if it was a pay for use service or free download.

But it was designed specifically to spam sites just like this

In case this is helpful to the mods, I looked up one of the terms he used:
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Putang+Ina+Mo

Seems to be Philippines. If he's using an international IP proxy that won't help, but I thought I would add this info.

My opinion is this is one script kiddie, working alone, mad as hell that someone here did not like his writing. Probably 15 or so.

YES THEY DO. THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE CASE.

Spam threads will be deleted, they're junk, we don't keep them.

Any replies posted in spam threads get deleted along with the spam.

So, please, don't bother replying to spammers, and please, just on this occasion, stop reporting spam posts -- that's another kind of flood to deal with! I can't open my gmail at the moment but I'm sure this is unrelated...

PS - deleting the spam threads isn't the problem -- it's doing this very carefully so that non-spam threads don't get deleted accidentally that's the problem!

That does it. I've figured it out. Script kiddie was an agent (the spy kind, not the reject-you-kind) sent by the publishing conspiracy to demoralize writers and program us not to ask for payment! It's a form of psychological warfare, probably due to the economic crisis.

Come to think of it, maybe that's what both kinds are for.

Now that's a bizarre argument, even by Internet standards. Unless he were an editor (:ROFL:) and getting paid to read the books, but then he has to edit the books as well. But that's a job (and not one he's qualified for).
