It is just impossible to keep up with the spam bots out there and not worth the hassle. I do not want to waste dev time moderating pill pushers.. not to mention this hilarious letter from a legal eagle. Did not even do a domain look-up to find my name. Love those lawyers as much as the spammers. Anyway back to work on cursed realms. =)

In the future if anyone knows a bulletin board that actually CAN keep out spammers let me know phpBB is not one.

  3. Ryan, Blue Host shut my synagogue site because of “intellectual property infringement” – Vivus claiming some content on my site. I’ve never heard about VVS before. Now I have to go through ordeal with legal department to reactivate the website. The first funny thing, my site is Joomla, but content is in WP content/plugins – I did WordPress before I switched to Joomla. The second is – Vivus does ED drugs – can you see how a synagogue can benefit from erectile disorder drug advertising? Anyway, is your site the only one that addresses this kind of problem? Can you give some advice on how to deal with this in the future?
