Overrun by SPAM

This site is getting overrun by bots/SPAM!  Is it time to block any more new user ID creation & sign ups until a better new member verification system can be put in place?

We (moderators) zap them as soon as we see them and ban them permanently. The site admins are working to figure out why all of a sudden these last couple of days has been so bad.  Mike

By the way, if you ever have a chance to visit the SPAM Museum in Austin, MN it's worth the stop. However, do NOT let your cat sample some of the more unusual flavors. (Worst pet flatulence ever!)

In my family's backyard. I actually like Hormel spam. 

I haven't been to the new museum.  I hear it's really a good stop.

I hadn't had Spam in 30 years, but on our last campout we fried some up on the grill and all the guys liked it, women not so much.

I really don't get much spam on this forum, or others,  I guess I just have good blockers on my computer.

It’s not related to your computer.  It’s the moderators on the forum that quickly remove spam posts.  But this morning it was a very different type of spam/fake user/bot posts.  This forum was getting bombarded this morning by HUNDREDS of spam posts about bogus airline ticket reservations from fake user accounts.   The moderators quickly removed all those posts and have temporarily blocked any new users from joining until a better security solution is found to prevent fake bot user accounts.

Moderators, I didn't see any of this spam. I thank you for that. 🙂. Paula

 

It was pretty ridiculous early this morning.   There were so many spam posts coming in continuously that it was hard to find any of the real user posts!  The moderators did a great job of putting an end to it and removing those posts.

I like fried and grilled spam. Maybe an acquired taste, as I'm from Spam country in Southern Minnesota.  

School lunch spam, with raisin sauce,  was one of my favorites,  as a kid. 

I know, weird. Lol. I liked fish sticks, too, back then. Probably because neither was often on the home menu.

For Hawaii, Spam is no mere novelty. On average, Hawaiians consume more than five cans of the stuff per person per year — more than any other U.S. state.

SPAM: Special Processed American Meat.

Personally, I'd rather have possum and sweet potatoes with a side of foie gras.
