Hey, I'm willing to learn. What would you suggest as proper German to scare away auto-submitters ?

Yeah, I can see your point. However, I didn't see any messages or files where this was all put together, so I figured ... what the hey.

Why not get add.cgi to set a cookie and only accept submissions if the cookie exists. That way they have to visit your add.cgi page to get the cookie set to their browser.

Thanks for the script. I had submitworld.com start to spam my directory and I only accept links with reciprocal links. I was getting a link sometimes every minute. Again thanks.

Re: German spammers? In reply to
yes indeed there is someone out here who is getting spammed real bad too!!!!
The difference is (maybe) that the initial hacker tests came from a submitted website "homepage.de" or so, from a Nacamar called firm and under the use of a probably fake email address of "test@nirvana.de".
Any of this familiar to you???
As for the spam that came in after a few of the above named hack test trials it was at the first atempt all porn from a site called www.sexisp.com, then -after i installed the referer URL (in links.cfg)- they stopped for a few weeks after which the same hack tests came through again and the spam started again, again with porn from that sexisp.com.

It could very well be a german hacker and anyone else reading this and have some info please tell me what can be done to stop the spamming!!!!
(refferer URL obviousely doesn't do the trick, even after taking the add.html page off line the spam would continue!!!

Links2 seems not very secure for such netassholes

usually it helps since sezrchup.de should have an interest in their reputation.
Gee i almost wish the porn spammer on my links2 installation would be so easy to stop)
webmaster@selfmaster.de
seems to be their contact address (but you can try soft.de as well or any other you find on their site.

Here is the german text (in short) (please suply with your Search Engine Name and your name where stated) you can use to advice them of the fact that they are not autorized to auto submit unless they have written consensus with you.

Werte searchup Leute,
euer auto submission service at http://www.searchup.de/promo-ten/maschinen.html
benutzt leider unsere Search Engine "Name of it here" OHNE ERFRAGTE ERLAUBNIS!
Da wir den spam nicht listen oder behandeln koennen erwarten wir dass Ihr unsere S.E. SOFORT aus euerer Liste entfernen, andernfalls sehen wir uns gezwungen rechtliche schritte gegen Euch zu unternehmen.
Freundlichst
"your name here"

Hope that will get the Attention of them.
As for my own spam problem, if anyone has a receipe to stop spamming in general, i would like to hear of it.
Rudolf

There's loads of things to stop spamming floating around... Seems using a combination of methods would work well. Ie. using cookies, banned log file, add confirm etc....

Hi, could you please share the improved translation with us?

Re: German spammers? - Final Solution In reply to
Turns out a translation is not necessary as their english is fine.

I was receiving as many as 100 submissions a day and had tried most of the easier suggested fixes and was gearing myself up to doing something a bit more time consuming when one of the spammers actually replied to an eMail I sent and explained about the http://submitta.com site. I joined the forum and found a thread that was relevant called "Is this true?". On this thread I explained that I ran a small locally based portal site and asked to be removed. I received an apology a couple of days later from Thiemo Nagel ( webmaster@submitta.com ) and not a single spammed submission has come my way in the last week.

What I am planning on intergrating on my site is a Paypal style submission form so that they have to type in a randomly generated number to be allowed to submit the form.

I posted about this in the Links SQL forum so I'm not going to repeat my self, but I'll give you guys the code for it if I end up doing it in Perl (First version will be in PHP).

I think this is a fairly simple way to prevent spam.
