Sorry David but security issues are not a good target to openly discuss.

A funny story, because this site used to be in the UK, it used to get bashed by Indonesian hackers who were endlessly dumping spam about prebuilt cabinets for that room in the house where food is prepared, the K word. As it is not a common word to use in a technical forum I eventually found a technique, every instance of the K word was changed in any post including links to horrible things about the masculinity of the poster from Indonesia.

I had to learn how to make insults in Indonesian so they tried another redirection web site and the solution was simple, I added even more insults to that link and they eventualy gave up. They had been a "phukn" pest for years, always spoofed IPs that were different every time, the text redirection knackered them and they gave up.

Yes, everlasting torture in Hell with hot pokers (and cold coffee) is too good a fate for most hackers and spammers ...
