Our daily spammer GoLadyMall.com made yet another appearance on the Marlins game thread tonight. Does it affect your sbnation blog? Have you had enough?
I have seen this same spam attack at least since 2009 for sure, and perhaps earlier. One night I was following both the Marlins and Phillies game threads when the spammer attacked both blogs within 30 seconds of each other. I have seen it on the Marlins, Phillies, Rays, and Nationals blogs to be sure. I have to believe it is hitting others here as well.
It should be possible for sbnation to filter any post containing the URL of this spammer (and any variation thereof) and send it to the bit bucket. Using this approach, no matter who posts the junk it does not see the light of your display.
I'm puzzled as to why no action has been taken to stop this spammer. If there has, it has not been effective. One might reasonably conclude after all this time that sbnation might derive some benefit from allowing this spammer to continue, but that wouldn't be right, now would it? Nahhhhhh!
UPDATE 2010.10.14 - somebody closed comments to this post. Wasn't me. Curious.
