Run amok, they have

These spammers.

I can only hope that our TR wizards are using this latest onslaught -- this coming out into the clearing -- to more perfectly calibrate windage, elevation, and other attributes to deadly effect.

Of course, the wizards may also have thrown up their hands; gone home in the face of a New Normal. I know I'm about ready to.

A Blue Link like that I just report it as Spam.

Seems that the Spammers use it more than anyone else here and just about all entires I see like that are Spam.

I had to catch myself from Flagging one of Jason???s Posts where he linked to the Article. :^0

Now it's still accidental

A month more of this and we'll all be all "Frag the Lt.", all over the place.
Which is ironic, because they now have assigned someone to look at our concerns...
The stress of non-stop bombardment will get to even the sanest ones... luckily we all were (I wager) a few shakes short of sane to begin with, so we'll last a while longer.

it has been terrible

by PurpleSkys In reply to Run amok, they have

without a doubt. Feels like almost everytime i log in, i nail at least one post for spam while surfing around. And I too feel bad for the folks that get all the spam alerts emailed to them, it must be quite frustrating

Only one way out...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to it has been terrible

someone have it all redirected to the CNET big cheeses... this is a job for a teflon-coated back-end, and someone with deciding power has to see the problem.

This could be a world-wide phenomenon, by the way.
Major botnets could be getting involved, too.

Or maybe

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Run amok, they have

TR Coverage of Anon activities have upset some people and we are seeing the Low End Attack.

I've just gone through my TR Notifications and I think that there where 3 New Posts not from a spammer.

But no matter what I'm betting PTB @ TR are wetting themselves when they look at the Site Traffic. of course getting another increase like the one that they got after the Site Redesign is going to be very hard to top. I just wonder how many will be left after the next redesign fails to get similar results. :^0

Nope. Its aliens.

by seanferd In reply to Or maybe

Aliens did it. They brought their own one of them things.

You, HAL, could probably have a look into this, given your unique abilities.

If site traffic is their goal,

by wizard57m-cnet Moderator In reply to Or maybe

then maybe the only way to get the PTB's attention is to not visit for awhile...
not answer Q&A, no comments on blogs. After a few weeks of nothing but
spam, perhaps they will implement something to help.
