        is it worth it to get a PC full of malware while watching a shaky videocam copy from the 14th row?


        sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?

        I don't think it's listening... Frown

        Do a google search on these latest bots and you'll find multiple posts on multiple forums.

        And just for the sheer intellectual pleasure (hah!), notice also the similarities in the screen names?

        8 letters, beginning with a consonant, 4 - 5 consonants and 3 - 4 vowels, and ending with a number.

        Computer generated, I'll bet? Or somebody likes the vowel "i".

        I only checked these few but I'm betting the similarities generally hold for the others that have appeared in this latest round of bot testing.

        bots only listen to the control server. I don't make a record of such things, because I have a life, but it looks like the same list of hoky links in the several DMCA-violating spams I have reported this week.

        the usual rules of life I have attended for over 40 years apply... if you like an artist or their work, pay the man fair and square. it's their living. if you swipe, connive, and cook the books like the lawyers for the entertainment companies, and you do it on the web instead of ahead of a settlement meeting with the artist, you are a blackbeard spammer.
