It happened again you mean? It happened a while back, and it was gambling stuff. Lee felt it was a bot. So it's only a matter of time before they program them with emails too. Speaking of technology which can be wonderful at times and annoying at others:http://www.wired.com/news/technology/0, ... ories_html

Next thing you know, it'll be the commies!
It's almost not funny. You'd be amazed what a pain in the ass it gets to be moderating any community-based site. I've got half a dozen anti-spam tools running on PervScan.com and I still end up manually filtering out anywhere from thirty to a hundred bits of spam per day. And that's not counting all the email spam that gets past my ten mail filters.
The flip side, though, is that a robust community of users makes it all worthwhile. A group can add to a site in ways that an individual never could. It's that "third mind" effect. We're some sorta Burroughs super-brain here.
