Now we have someone in the blog talking about penny stocks. While it may be informative, is this the site for that type of blog?

Unfortunately, someone must buy from these %$^$#% spammers or they would find other ways to torment us.

Thanks Martin for blasting them so fast….I have similar issues with them on my work servers…trying to spam, relay…etc…etc.. I block every site these originate from if I can find the right ones (usually the addresses are fakes (spoofed))...we keep trying all kinds of measures…but the spammers just keep getting better at crackin them….all we can do is just keep coming up with newer measures to stop em….at least slow em down…

I just don’t understand why anyone would buy from them….they must though or it would make no sense to keep bombarding everyone with their garbage….

I agree Mauritius….and some of the CAPTCHA items are hard to read for us humans….it does work in reducing bot spammers…but will not take out the human ones….we have used that on our company site to sift out bots and it is somewhat effective.
