1-26-2004 Spam Attack - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

 Well, it looks like I'm the victim of another spam attack from idiots that do not run proper antivirus and firewall software on their computers. This one is growing to be about as significant as the one last summer that hit everyone worldwide.

Read about it here: ... ID=4212198

I run Norton 2004 AntiVirus and Firewall on EVERYTHING coming into and going out of the website, and have automatic updates enabled so the very latest in protection is in place.

Normally, I am a supporter of the death penalty only in the case of a capital crime, but in this case I would support death by public execution for anyone proven guilty of creating and purposefully propogating this type of attack. At the very least, the person's typing fingers should be removed without the benefit of anesthesia!
