    No joke. Received a message today in "regards to [my] expertise in spamming" by a friend who works for a domain that is one of the targets in SENuke Xcrs social network sites section. They straight up told me what its like dealing with the spam all week, how many hours it takes to go through all of the fake articles and blogposts sent to them, totally crazy conversation. Asked me if I had any idea what kind of software it was that was doing it or if they were being targeted on purpose for something they did. Totally totally crazy conversation, was really interesting to meet someone who is actually on the butt end of spam software. I will post updates as to what transpires with this, could make for an interesting little blog assignment.

    They honestly have no one employed who deals with this sort of thing at ALL which is really surprising to me considering the size of the site. I wonder how many other major websites actually have zero employees stopping fake submissions and web traffic...

    People are so assholes these days. Those softwares are meant to be automation tools, not spamming tools.

    Look at it this way. If SENuke has 1000 users, that is a chance for
    1000 or more posts to be made to one single website in only weeks.

    I'm sure they have more than that, so I could only imagine the
    submissions this guy has to go through everyday.

    I'm unsure as to how to follow through with my conversations with the domain, as obviously they are a haven for my spam getting through and no one likes a snitch....etc

    Just disavow these links and if you can mention that you are not the one that built them. I am sure Google would understand and often you can tell if people are doing it to harm another website. Often the spam blasts will help the rankings in the short term and long term they could be good if you have enough links keep that in mind if you are going to be spamming someones ranking.

    why just they don't put some captcha and antispam protection? I would rather pay someone deploy some antispam measure, rather than paying someone on a salary to be deleting the spam

    I don't think adding custom question they can survive. programmers are coding new software and scripts to break those.

    Many link builders still don't understand the value of quality link building. No wonder some of them are complaining about the changes in SERPs this past few days. SENUKE is good for making the work fast, but it should not be abused by posting the same spun content and url of your money site 4 to 10 times in one domain that is listed on the software..

    My blogs get spammed to death, my forums also.
    Dealing with 98% of it is stupid easy with Akismet and spamban or similar ($5 a month maybe?)
    The other 5% I check up on now and then - I "repurpose" some of it (oh yes - spam comments become proper comments and add to social noise nicely designed a bot to do just that for me)
    and some of course is proper.

    Sometimes you can tell that one of your sites is "on a list" somewhere as for 4-6 weeks you get maybe 5000 comments or attempts to make accounts a day.
    I make email addresses just to catch the spam notifications as well ( a good idea).....

    Rarely an issue - very easy to mitigate and sometimes even useful.

    Scritty

    Incompetent webmaster should sell his blog and do something else. Can't handle a few spam posts, wtf. Hilarious.
