I was linked this site while posting about spam on malwarebytes forum. One of the best links I have had the pleasure of opening in what seems like ages. :D
Spam - Uninteresting garbage quickly deleted.
Spammer - A parasitic worm intent on creating internet misery.

I followed MysteryFCM here when I wanted to ask a question about fspamlist. Long trail of breadcrumbs from StopForumSpam and Hosts-File to here. But I made it!

I've been a pretty inactive, as in non-posting member of the Wilders Security Forums and have been a member there some time although I've lurked and read quite a bit over there over time. I've seen the TIC site linked to over there in places and that's how I knew it existed. Also had it bookmarked for ages before actually visiting.

I couldn't exactly remember if I found this by coming across a link on another site / forum, or if I found it in a search result. All I know is I have been using http://temerc.com/Check_Spammers/ for about a year now (I think) to check suspicious IP's that come and try to join my forums. Then when recently it wasn't working correctly I decided to try to seek help and discovered there was a forum here. So I joined. That is all there is to it.
I got questions & need answers in my process to recognize & kill off spam on my sites and their links to malware!

Thx I noticed and am able to use it again ;)

Still hard sometimes to figure out what new members on a forum is a spammer or not though until you catch them in the act.

In alot of cases, the username and IP will generally give it away ;) (and of course, the IP + e-mail).

I found your site the first time through a search engine and I've seen it referenced at a few of the other help sites we all frequent quite often, good publicity gets around t*u
