Guess we're not the only ones.
It's been quite a while since I've visited the Mr. Excel forums, but when I popped in earlier tonight to get some help on a thorny Excel problem I'm having, it turns out they've been hit with the same spammers we had.
From the dates on the outraged user posts, it appears it has only struck there in the last few days.
I first thought was that I'd somehow logged back into this forum by accident, and they'd somehow slipped back in here in mass. I said several nasty words.
Then I realized I was actually in the Excel forum and had a sinking feeling of deja vu. Recognized several of the same links they were posting here, and so I said several more bad words.
I suspect my post over there may get lost - they're just getting hit by the onslaught and don't seem to have a good handle on it yet. They're still trying to manually delete all posts, and don't want to block domains yet. I laughed at that one.
Surely must be a special level of hell for spammers, just not sure if Dante would consider them as Fraud or Treachery.
