Spam ad submissions - IP to block
« on: April 02, 2017, 03:38:04 PM »
I started getting a lot of spam ad submissions this week.  Those are ads submitted by a robot that contain mostly gibberish. 

I got fed up this morning and downloaded the text file with the recent hits to that page.  I found the same IP address that corresponds with the timing of each ad submission.

If you are getting a lot of spam ad submissions, do an IP block or IP deny in your Cpanel for the IP address 5.188.211.14.  That should at least slow the submissions.  It isn't a permanent fix as this is the fifth or sixth time I've done this and they always come back a few months later, but it will at least give you a break from the flood of fake ads.

Received several affiliate page submissions from IP addresses that start the same as the one below.

Blocking 5.188.211. to block anyone whose IP address starts with those numbers.  All of the IPs have been reported as spam sources according to whatismyipaddress.
