Read latest post for a possible ADDITIONAL spammer...



I just wanted to all alert you that I've been spammed twice from a mailbot that goes by the name of "Mike", and has an email return address of "mike[randomnumber]@hotmail.com"

The exact letter is as follows:

Quote
Hey there.. ^_^

Just saw you on some forums, and thought I would email you. Basically I own a message board for anime, roleplay and entertainment with about 1500 members, and would like to invite you to them. :P We are a friendly place (though a little crazy) with plans of world domination (was I meant to say that? er..heh heh ^^). Anyway, if you want to check it out, the link is:

http://www.animeleague.net/cgi-bin/phpbb/index.php

Hope to see ya around. :)


It sounds friendly, but like I said, this is a mailbot, a spammer.  The board itself is pretty much as it says, however El-Hazard comes up under only a handful of topics, one of which was "Worst Animes Ever".  The server its on seems paralyzed with bandwidth overload... and they really don't need additional members, nor do many of the ones on there seem even remotely mature (probably a bunch of 12-14 year old males, bleh).  One of the topics that El-Hazard WAS in asked so many incredibly sad questions (why wuz makoto cross-drssing?!! what's up with that little girl?!?!)

Anyway, I don't know if any of you are members there, but I recommend you DON'T add to their 1500+.  :P

Received a similar email, Rob.  I drew much the same conclusions you did through my own inspection.

We all know the place to come talk about EH, right?  :)

I would like to think so ;)

I decided to call their bluff, and checked to see how many members were even active posters...

Check this out, as of when I checked, 1051 people who've registed but never posted once.  o_O  (And a great many more who've only posted once...)  Definitely not worth anyone's time.

Well, I get loads of junk in my email Inbox, as well as junk mail. I get roughly 30 junk mail messages a day.
Things that don't even apply to me as well, stuff like, pensions, and other things...

But I mean, come on, who joins a forum and never posts, whats the point?

Back to the current subject. What is the point in joining a forum and not posting?! Its not even as if there was anything else interesting to do. :P

Well, apart from on The OB files, where some of things, like on EHOL can only be accessed by a current logged in member of the forum.

"hey" from Ice Cold:

Quote

Hey there! I am going around asking members of certain anime Communities If they would please join my forums at http://www.digital-anime.com/forum/  . We have just begun to work on this site and are hoping to make it the best site ever, but a good site needs good members, so we are hoping to get a few people who wish to join and see what they'd like on the site, and soon by listening to all of your ideas the site will be great.. So far we are planning on hosting fan-fiction, anime episodes (you won't have to vote to get to the page like on most other sites), and many other things as soon as we get more ideas. So .. yes please join our new forums.. Please help make our site great... ^___^


I'm not sure if this one is quite as loose-structured as Anime League... but if one who's a master of El-Hazard can't be emailed with some recognition to El-Hazard, I think it's just as likely that it's another mailbot.  :P

K0one of those as well. But you already knew that Rob. I remember us discussing the utter daftness of their board members, in regards to El Hazard.

Oh well, the Emperor is still the Emperor. And, the fool is still the fool.
