Spammer reported by Russ had been hammered by another sanitation patrol.
I took great pleasure in hammering the one reported by Tom though

Both those links are dead so I suppose the spammer is too! But just found this clown in General Modelling and in Scratchbuilding, callsign S32dfmko.

Here’s two to consider. I have no idea what pathetic gibberish this guy is talking about, but it’s sure not hobby related:

Both suffered from the difficulty in doing the job on the first cut. There are stories about executioners having to swing 3 or even more times.


Invented by Antoine Louis and Tobias Schmidt, named after the man who proposed its use for executions as a better, humane alternative, Dr Joseph Ignace Guillotin.

The executioners axe is severely unbalanced so I bought myself one of these instead:

The blade is 17 and 1/8 inch

They didn't use the same IP-nr so I hope it was two independent spammers

This is a weird one. No link to a website. Failed SEO attempt?

oops ....
I was in the process of suspending that account but got interrupted
it was your find to begin with, user name was dubaifunclub.
I started by editing out any information that might posibly be found by some search engine and then I forgot to push that final button. Corrected now.

Not sharing
Finding a good spammer to terminate is getting more and more difficult these days.
Maybe the rumour of the hunter-killer team operating here is starting to spread

I'm not up on all this internet spy stuff.

Why do they do this?
Do they get paid per user account they make?

And why here, on specialty interest site.
Its not F Book (yet) with 2 billion users...



There are probably many reasons. These two seemed to be straight up advertising their own services. Don't know if they had planned to create posts or if they were satisfied with simply creating a user account.
In some cases it might be an attempt to try and trick Googles search algorithms into showing their websites. I think Google awards "brownie points" based on how many other sites point at or link to a specific site so by seedin the internet with dummy accounts or anything that can be a link to their site they hope to increase their Google rating.

Whatever, as soon as I find out about a spammer I bring out the big hammer and whack them ...
