    Two things have happened about that:

    1. There's this new spam filter thing called 'akismet' plugged into the forum software.

    [ EDIT: I'm referring to the tdwtf forum, not any tineye forum.

    2. Ha ha the assholes got all their domains shut down.  They'll be back no doubt but that's at least going to be a right pain in their ass and a bunch of their effort wasted, which is all good.



  •  I knew those shoe deals were too good to be true. You disappointed me Carnildo.
