  • So what's the deal over at RASTB5M?

    Does ANYONE have any idea on who/where/why/how the spammer is?

    Because I tell, you I was somewhat freaked out to see a post by none other then "Arlen Roy Kundert" (my real name) that I didn't write!

    I cooled down once I saw I wasn't the only one who got "hosed" by the spammer.

    But anywho, if anyone finds out what's going on PLEASE feel free to share.

    Delenn:On Minbar Three is sacred.
    Sheridan:I don't think I'm ready for that!

    There's more information over there in the 'Apologies' thread, ARK. Basically, it's an attack and not really aimed at RASTB5M, but rather many, many Usenet groups. As of last night, they've switched from the cannibal cookbook to nonsense posts.

    Everybody who's posted recently has been hit, including JMS. One of those posts made it onto the archive page for a brief time, even, until DougO removed it. Yeah, it's a shock to see your own name/email address above that kind of bilge.

    The mods are aware, but since the 'bot they're using forges approvals, there's not much they can do.

          It got me too. One thing I discovered though as a result ... I could delete my own posts. A neat feature that I was unaware of until these spam attacks.
