Today RIBO Labs Blog has passed the 1,000 marker on spam levels, with the top spammer, IP 188.8.131.52, the “How To Win At Casinos” website, who has gotten through the spam filter once yesterday, and three times today. I just made the spam filter stronger so they hopefully will not go through again. I really hate to block IPs from posting comments, and from RIBO Labs, but I think it is necessary in order to provide a good, clean website. I do check some of the spam comments from time to time, but by no means look at all of them. So if you’re posting any comments, with any links, or any thing that looks like it could possibly get caught in the spam filter, or does show up in a couple of days, please contact me through the contact form, or email me directly (for those of you who know my email). If you post a comment on RIBO Labs, I have made sure the system will not show your email publicly, so there is no fear of it being collected by Spam Bots.
I must go now because I just got two more spam comments (making it 5 from them today) that went through the filter, from IP 184.108.40.206…!
