I've sent a message to Stu about it. It's not even real spam, as far as I can tell.
Sorry, was between work and home - Stu has nuked him/her.
No worries. I did get a useful phone number should I need love philtres or black magic so it was a win/win really.
Yes, Stu was pretty quick off the mark. I gave him a heads up because I didn't know if you'd be available at that time of day.
It was almost a denial of service attack, the posts were coming in at about two a minute!
LET US CAMPAIGN FOR REAL SPAM ONCE MORE!
Is real spam better than fake spam?
Is fake spam spam spam, or is real spam spam?
Do you think they knew I would be unable to respond?
They could be watching... somewhere... out there...
Was that glint of light from a pair of binoculars or just an opening window?
Be afraid, be very afraid!
It's pork luncheon meat.
Yes I know already.
Sorry, I was being spammy.
Don't worry about the binoculars. Most of them have Convex object lenses, which only form a tiny, faint virtual image - ie no glint of reflected sunlight.
So it was probably a window opening, so a sniper can get you in his sights!
All this '+917891556551' spam appears to be coming from Gangakhed, a Parbhani district in Maharashtra state, India.
I was thrown initially by the IDD, I misread +91 India as +917 New York City.
If we continue to have problems, there are ways to sort it.
There's something very odd -and totally unintelligible to me - in chat at the moment! I suspect it's spam.
Is it now gone?
If you suspect the whiff of spam, please report it. The system is not automated, so there's no harm done if you're wrong.
Latest comedy spam:
Airsnore is an anti-snoring mouthpiece that is pretty simple in design.
It offers an alternative to uncomfortable, heavy-duty apparatus that
traditionally come with fancy features such as screws, calibrators and
tongue holders. It is made of thermoplastic material, which is specially
designed to utilize the power of boil and bite technology.

We are now being spammed by Law Firms.
I derive immense satisfaction from banning a new member thirty seconds after they've completed registration and before they have even given any indication that they're spammers.
Although I know they're mostly bots doing the dirty work, I prefer to imagine a frustrated foreigner thumping the keyboard and yelling in a comical accent "How did they know?"
*waits to be sued*
We are now being spammed by barbers from Surrey.
I shit you not.
It's like Twitter when you get followed for no discernable reason. I remember a Limerick guy going: Why am I being followed by a kebab shop in Bradford?
That is a truly surreal image.
Yeah. If you lived in the general Bradford area then they might follow you to advertise their existence. But Limerick?
When the guy was asked by GCHQ if he wanted the spammer shut down he responded with
..Don't beak away my take away..
Sorry about that, the old chocolate jingle just appeared min my mind.
Chris Morris in disguise.
"the old chocolate jingle"
Got to be a euphemism for something obscene.
It was the jingle from the 'Breakaway' ad.
'Don't take away my Breakaway'.
What he probably said was:
I find myself troubled by spam
And they don't even know who I am
As if I would grab
A doner kebab
When I don't even like processed lamb!
Yesterday I mention how Tamil Tigers were slaughtered on the beaches in Sri Lanka. I was swiftly followed by a Beach Holidays Twitter account!
