Check this out! (spam vigilante)

Post by Jarod » Tue Apr 05, 2011 8:00 pm

I was just pruning some users, cleaning up junk posts and implementing a new captcha system which is basic Q&A logic questions from

but while doing this i noticed alot of error messages from the email function of the forum. i logged into the registration account and saw this as a reply:

Delete This Account! It Was Created By A Forum Spammer! -- This account was created solely to spam forums and blogs. Delete the forum account using this email address. -- Random Digilante --

Very interesting, the author is going around guessing email address passwords that are used to create spam accounts and making them autorespond to any message with that message.
What he is doing is a little borderline as far as legality goes, but I applaud this guy. a little blackhatting for the greater good of the internet!

If Random Digilante ever comes here: I sincerely thank you for your efforts and hope that others will join you in the war on spam!
