Default Korean spam messages

SaturnFans is getting "bombed" by South Korean gambling website advertising again. How do I know what these sites are? My wife has read them and described them to me. They obviously have no idea what people are likely to use this website. Generally, Koreans ignored the Saturn brand here in Southern California and probably throughout the state. If they're hoping to find any Korean-Americans to access their websites then they're "phishing" in a sea of sand. These clownish spammers are fools.

The blessings of liberty erode in my country.
Gov't's grown bigger, but a chance exists that it will be reduced. I'm cautiously hopeful.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

They are persistent, aren't they? Thanks for the translation -- I didn't know what they were trying to sell.

I feel like I am blocking and deleting new spam every day now!

Just block the whole IP range for Asian-Pacific Telcos? I doubt anyone trying to access here from China or similar for anything legitimate.

FWIW ... I agree with SC2Sick 100%. My sentiments exactly.

As admininstrator you should have access to each IPs used to log on, here. With those in hand (figuratively speaking) determining the ISP being used shouldn't be too difficult and a more specific area block could be employed.

There are always going to be ways around blocks but just making it inconvenient as h*ll for them to continuously SPAM might send them to an easier target.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
