    Same here. I have a directory that gets about 500 spam submissions a day. Every thing I try to do to stop it gets worked around.

    Due me a favor... you and anyone else.

    SAVE your logs like this. My :evil: on spammers will hopefully be here before the end of the year.

    email them to admin [at] activeweblinks [dot] com
    The more I have the better things will be. There is a tremendous amount to consider in what I am going to do. It's NOT going to be easy by any means, but I want to see how close I can come to minimizing the spamming.

    I really doubt that, they are all registered at 1&1 using private registration and are hosted at Hostgator, it is highly unlikely that they are owned by different people

    Hi,

    I think everyone gets garbage sites. but one should not ban the ip range etc. like people do. What if i block a ip range ? Then the genuine people will not be able to submit their directories.

    So i think just rejecting the website is ok.

    Seems like that only.. There are plenty of folks at DP from India who does take directory submission jobs.

    Mods may be able to help and identify if this person is active on DP.

    See some of the submission services here:

    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/search.php?searchid=1977189

    Perhaps PHPLD need to be tweaked a bit, so that first payment is accepted, then form to submit a directory should come. Also, if there can be a email verification or authentication, the spam submission might go down.

    Iam getting around 4-5 submissions daily from last 6 days at http://www.gii.in .
    First day i banned the IP
    Second day got more submissions to xxx sites and banned the IP again.
    Later i have started deleting the links because i dont want other genuine visitors to be blocked to my directory.
    Shall i post those 2 IP's here which i blocked :)?

    If you considered it spam when it was submitted to your directory why would you give them live links here? :confused:

    I don't think anyone suggested that Indians are spammers.
