Anti Spam


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, something that has always tickled me since I got online all those years ago is SPAM. We all get it and we all probably use some method of preventing and removing it.

I noticed a user of these forums had a very interesting link in their signature


After browsing over to this site I was rather impressed, but I then quickly realised how actually duff this website may be. Surely once a spammer picks up or learns about the anti spam methods being used against them then they will simply blacklist this domain from their bot?

Another though I had, couldn’t this bot perform a MX lookup on each domain to verify it exists? I don’t really know how process intensive an MX lookup for every domain it’s spamming would be? Perhaps x number of rouge domains is acceptable to a spammer?
