    You see a lot of posts here about people wanting to use xrumer and other spamming programs.

    Does anyone here own or operate sites that have been victimized by these programs?

    Yeah, it's great that you want your backlinks on some forum - how about if the shoe is on the other foot and you have a forum that gets blasted by these softwares?

    It's great to make money using as many methods as possible but keep in mind that these programs mainly crap on other sites, owned by other people - people just like you, taking time and money away from those people.

    What is the time and money you are losing specifically, and maybe we can help to avoid this by suggesting plugins, filters, methods to stop this from happening. I get spammed by scrapebox on all my blogs, and if the comments are quality, I approve them!

    protip: try to work on your forums security instead of complaining here. im sure there are ways to keep the spam away from your forum. maybe have your new members do a phone verification before they can enter the forum :D

    :rolleyes:

    There are plugins for many of the popular forums that flag IP's as spam IP's and share the IP's on a database. So the IP is then banned from all forums using that plugin.

    And make them submit blood sample and IQ test so nobody can outsource the activations to the mailman.

    won't work I can change IP with a click of a button as often as I want + I have 500 private proxies and if IP is banned xrumer randomly use one of 500 private proxies.

    This is BHW... you can't complain about things like that here. And you can always modify your sites to protect them from commercial spamming tools.

    It will work, because most xrumer users don't have 500 private proxies + ip they can change at click of a button. Plus, 500 proxies get banned real fast if every webmaster installs these reporting plugins. Are you going to change IP for every forum you post on? That sounds like a lot of work, when realistically you would just forget about that 1 forum and move on to another one.

    I agree, it's an absolute disgrace!

    To start with it's a big problem that so many people are always....



    Ooh, sorry, got to go, SB just finished posting :D

    I think you misunderstand... not regular email. Regular postal mail. I don't think xrumer 7 has a crack to go to someones house, open the mail box, decipher which piece of mail is for the forum activation, grab the code there, and then enter the activation code.
