Yea, we'll need to beef up security here.

but the site owner doesnt visit the site much and he doesnt want them to stop cause they give him hits :thumbdown:

its funny because...all the spammers are from sweden, where the owner is from :think:

hits bring money, the original owner of the site sold it to the current owner, and he owns a bunch of sites where he gets paid from the revenue

I don't even know why people even bother with sending spammers. Has it ever worked? Every forum I went on to ignored the spam threads. :|

I'm not sure, but it's awfully annoying. Just ignore them. Don't quote them or reply to them. ;)

Hits don't exactly transfer directly into revenue like you're implying. There are many other factors at work.
