There should be a WiIliam Munny option.
You do wonder what these very disturbed people get out of this.
Like Naval gunfire, sheer volume has a power all of its own..
Clicks = people conned, or successful advertising... depending on grade/perspective.
Look at the numbers on the service that collects (and then distributes) our reported Spam Emails, and many other forums etc.:
two hundred & seventy-three million,
four hundred & sixty-one thousand,
four hundred eighty-five.
Just addresses... And each address could create thousands of spam posts if allowed to.
Think of the tiny tiny percentage of successful clicks required to classify it as a worthwhile 'business'.
(If they were charged, as per Otto's thought, just 1p to register an email - that'd cost £582,734,614.85 to feed that wave of cack... which might rather calm their nonsense.)
We let them pile up for a day or so.
This (probable) bot has not gone away.
Off to clean them out... Sigh.
Commiserations Von Poop - how do you find the energy?
Maybe shut down and start up again with different brouser?
ps Sorry stupid idea.
I know nowt!
I admire your determination.
Auto-spam corralling them nicely now, but seems to be the same bot disconsolately chuntering away.
