Getting a lot of spam emails? Then put this in your signature, blog or website:

Or my version of it:

Here's the BBCode:

Here's the HTML:

The full description of this website is too long to put here, but basically putting the link in your signature will make spambots follow it and be confused. Click the link up top for a more detailed explanation. Help spread the word!

At least you could provide basic information about that site. Sounds reasonable instead of advertising it as the Holy Grail of web surfing.

From what I could gather this site is basically a "decoy" for spam bots to stumble upon, because spam bots relentlessly visit every link of every page (they are morons that way). That being said, simply the mere presence of this link will make bots quickly follow it and be trapped there (I don't know what marvels they see in the link to follow it, maybe they think it's hot. Hey, I am not one to judge). They get trapped there because the site pulls fake email addresses right out of their magic hats, but maybe in a less wondrous way than how I just described it. Being repeatedly bombarded by fake emails where it is forced to send spam messages, the spammer will be wasting lots of time and money in vain, so they will either pull out the spam bot and call it a day, stopping their evil acts once and for all, or... build a far more superior bot which will become so advanced it will develop a fully functional cognitive ability and become sentient, forever dooming Mankind just because some loser living in his mom's basement wanted to pull off the classical (but equally retarded) prince of Arabia scam on countless idiots who will fall for it. Said idiots who shouldn't be surfing the web in the first place but should be kept in a scientific facility for scientists to learn how Man truly is devolving.

When will humanity learn...

Oh... I am sorry, I really went overboard in that last part...
Hum, so yeah... If you are having trouble with spam emails, this link will surely help you out.

Horrible BBCode for me. Then again, I'm using my Grandma's computer which runs on Vista and only has IE8.

I found a fix for your problem. Look at the links and manually remove the %20 parts. Then the picture and link will work. It has nothing to do with your computer.

This has made me think. Since spambots search the page for links to go to to spread their spam. If a spambot places their e-mail, will other spambots spam their spam into that e-mail which in turn will trigger the other spambot to reply in an endless cycle?

Either that or I'm not getting this right. (I'm not good with computer?)

Ahah, I see what you did there. But naw, it's not "human hating", it was a little humorous story I just came up in the spot.

If I understand what you are asking, no, spambots won't reply to other emails. They just send spam, they don't respond to them. As far as I know, anyway.
