Hello All,


        Every once in a while we get someone who registers on Bleeping Computer for the sole purpose of generating as many spam messages as they can in a very short time period:  a Rapid Serial Spammer.


        If you happen to be one of our helpful members who reports an instance of a specific spam message that's either being exactly duplicated or very similar from the same spammer, one after another, only a single report is necessary.


        The moderating team will clean up the entire mess once we've identified someone engaging in rapid serial spamming so as soon as we have one report from you about a given individual that is all we need. It saves both our helpful members, and the moderating team, some time if there are not multiple reports to close regarding the same spammer so if you have already submitted one, and see "the same spam" elsewhere, rest assured that we will be purging that spam, too.


         Thanks very much to those of you who take the time to report spam messages to us.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.  Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
