    Yes true spam is a true problem not just for this forum, unfortunately too many don't even really know the difference between spam and an attempt to help or even a missplaced Q or A.

    I'm also seeing spam in place of the first "last post" in Get Technical Help Here, related to the FAQ forum. In the FAQ forum itself there is no spam.

    Today, 14:17
    A few hours ago the spam was different but also in Brazilian Portuguese. Is someone else seeing this or is my Firefox 7.0 compromised? As I live in Bahia this seems very much directed.

    yep...and, you know what the cure will be, don't you?
    (well, i _guess_ the filtering (or newsgroup moderation) needed to keep
    the scum out will be too much trouble and . . .)

    With "buts". It goes in plain text, so it should not be the same password
    as used on other Novell things. And I don't know if their server supports it.

    It was commented time ago, and there are problems.
