What's up with this constant nonsense ?

Is this part of the DMD and James Suber mystery ?

I don't really care....The posts are easy to ignore.

But today, I'm in no mood to be annoyed.

No Reminder, as Char has said umpteen many times this ISP comes from Russia....Douglas is in Georgia and has been and he has been very nice in his postings. I think he has been very patient with the fact that every single nasty post has been attributed to him. Following is Char's response to the spam on the main forum under topicpionerka

From what I've seen on other sites this is just SPAM and I delete it when I see it.
Char

a map tracer for ISP locations shows it originating in Russia as has all the other SPAM that has shown up here in the last month...

Our charming moderator has already discovered that the stoopid series of unintelligent postings by spammers here has been eminating from Russia.
I agree though RMD that all this spam is very annoying, even if you are a Python fan. Recently I have been suffering from a series of imbeciles of French extraction who insist on trying to make contact via my hotmail account. One such pest seems convinced that I might be inclined to listen to a Tunisian radio staion. Fortunately the current hotmail junk mail sytem does a reasonably good job and I religiously (oops no religion here! sorry) click delete then report them to Microsoft
The other notable idiocy concerns my Microsoft (MSN) Messenger. a stream of cretinouis contacts keep trying to interest me in either some stoopid casino site or watching some shy newbie lady playing with herself. By the time I type in a reply suggesting that they "go forth and multiply" they have unvaringly gone off line.
It beats me why with so much else of interest to do or look at on the internet individuals spend all this time and effort friggin' around.
I understand that robots are largely responsible and their activities are designed to place hyperlinks on boards such as ours to fool the search engines into elevating such sites in their rankings.Methinks Google et al would be better advised to spend their time eliminating this practice instead of baiting Microsoft
I guess this is also why I have to frequently delete my own site's guestbook file (that is stored on my web space with a sanitary basic file containing only the genuine messages.
I must do so now. so I'll brb
OK done my basic guestbook is only 46592 bytes
I have used it to replace the current one which today was only 49,152 bytes
the difference this time being solely due to a duplicated and illiterate entry which reads

Name: Beth, Bex and Beth
Email: bickybird{at}lycos.co.uk
HomePage: http://
Where are
you from: Gosport!
"Comments: Hi! John!! we think your site is amazing! we are your biggest fans!! were actually reading the French Luitenants (sic)
Womam(sic) and stumbled onto your page! most interesting!!
much more interesting than the real John Fowles!! We love you John!! from your biggest fans! Beth, Bex and Beth!!
ps: can we have your babies please!
any questions? How can you be so cool!! "

As they claim to be from Gosport. any more of this nonsense and I will summon Jim Nasium to go and sort them out!!
(Maybe he could teach them how to spell Lefttenant!!)
Actually that small increase was atypical.
I have had to delete files containing uncountable numbers of crazy entries so many that the file once was over 2 Megabytes of drivel. which is not so amusing because it eats into my limited 50MB web space that I pay for.

I Hope that the rest of the day pleases you more RMD

Brink, Mr. Fowles,

Sorry about sounding testy. Just a rough morning. I appreciate your explanations.

Mr. Fowles, thank you for the hope for a better day.
I hope your hope comes true.
