Hey Jose it is another twatty SPAMMER posting shyte in the Grow Journals Indoor section of the site/forum and here in the http://forums.strainhunters.com/forum/130-kalashnikova-auto-official-seed-test/

 

The arsehole in question  hvudnfbkfbd created a shit load of posts I checked one and used Bing Translate the content which is just fucking garbage the type of shyte SPAMMERS put in emails to beat SPAM filters, random shyte text about nothing in particular.

 

Which clearly demonstrates what a complete cock this SPAMMER is, there is no way they can gain from these posts, the text does not contain links to some SPAMMY site peddling fake meds or porno etc, it is just a shit load of random text.

These are BOTs or SPAMERS who are dedicated to filling the forums with their advertising. The bot has already been banned, and his publications (in this case, they were Chinese) have been removed.

I was wondering if it was automated

 

Looking at the date and time stamp for each post showed they were created very quicky one after the other.

 

Plus the amount of text in each post and the fact that only the university name at the bottom of the post changed, a human could not post that much crap that quickly even copying and pasting, never mind waiting for page reloads to submit and create new topics/posts.

So the ejit SPAMMER is back with a new account and username fdsgkhgjb07 posting the same shyte as yesterday this time in the Doubts And Real Stories section of the site/forum.

 

This time they have only posted 3 new topics and each post contains the exact same garbage text they posted yesterday.

 

It is pretty obvious that this clown copied and pasted their crap into the posts.

 

The fact that the content they post contains no links to external sites to provide some means for the SPAMMER to earn money from their efforts, shows they are a complete knob head wasting their own time with their dumb arsed crap.

Hey Gizmo2908 the new SPAM posts in Grow Journals Indoor is a different username fghgfjh

 

But the content of the posts is basically the same garbage.

 

The interesting thing about these posts is that they are all dated December 25th 2017 which means they are not showing up in the time line of Activity

 

This is an obvious attempt to make it harder to find their shyte and remove it, but it also means forum users are less likely to see it.

 

This just shows that SPAMMERs are DUMB!

Unfortunately this is not possible to do this programmatically in any scripting language such as PHP or even a full blown programming language like C++ or Java

 

The reason this is not possible is simply because we have no real means to measure or determin a persons intentions.

 

We could ask them a series of question about what they intend to do, but if they are up to no good they will just lie, like a 10 year old pickney opening a Facedook account.

 

In the case of pickney opening Facedook accounts or any account for that matter where the rules state an age restriction, all you can do is ask the user if they are older than 13 or 18 or whatever age is the threshold for creating an account, using JavaScript you end up with something like the following.

 

if(userAge != 13) {   // verify user is younger than 13

msg = "sorry you are too young!";   // tell user too young

window.location = account-failure-page.php;   // redirect to failure page

if(userAge == 13 || userAge > 13) {  // verify user is 13 or older

msg = "You have successfully created an account";    // account successfully created

}

if(userLoggedIn = "true") {

window.location = index.php   // redirect logged in user to homepage

}

if(userLoggedIn = "false") {

window.location = login.php // redirect user to login page

}

 

This is a very simplified example in the real world the incoming data would be sanitised first to make sure it does not contain anything malicious, before checking the age value the user has entered to see if it is less than, equal to, or greater than the age restriction value.

 

So if the user enters 18 and really they are only 10 years old there is no way to determin they are lying.

 

If we all had ID cards and each country provided a database containing all of this information and they provided an API to allow public read only access then we could easily catch the pickney in their lie and piss them off, fortunately this is not the case.

 

To determin someones intentions in the real world is impossible, people tell lies all the time for many reasons, mainly selfish, so trying to determin a users intentions online is impossible, the best you can do as get them to agree to some terms and conditions, then if they breach them you can piss them off.

 

But as fast as you fuck them off and delete their account, they can easily create a new one with different or fake credentials.

 

In the same way as in the real world if you do a job for someone there is no guarantee they will pay up for the work, we just have to give them the benefit of the doubt and hope they will do the right thing and pay the invoice.

 

When someone walks into a shop the shop keeper has no way to know if they are going to steal goods or pay like everyone else, until they steal something they are just another potential customer browsing the goods and all the shop keeper can do is hope they are not a thief until they show their true colours and intentions.

 

So we end up with this game of cat and mouse, and having to clear up the mess after the event, despite all the advances in technolgy.

It's totally normal, in all forums it happens. They are banned during the first few hours, when reports arrive or are detected manually.

Every day spammers come in, it's one of the things that has internet.......

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
