I normally ignore spam, till I received the e-mail below.

I hope like hell you're not selling e-mail addresses. I have to wonder, how did they know that I'm into fx ? Where the **** did they get my e-mail from...?

I suspect that some Brokers sell your E-Mail address plus your cell-phone numbers. I receive a lot of forex-spam by E-Mail and spam calls from UK (they look for gullible Investors for their crap Investments). I can recommend the App 'Calls Blacklist' for your phone, so you can add the Spammer-number directly from your call-protocol to the blocking list. And for the e-mails: just mark them as spam, they come mostly from the same assholes.

Hi Ethan,

I notice this persistent spammer/scammer has changed the topic names to ...................................... to fly under the radar, and once the heat dies down I am sure he will be back. To show you how many scammer false arbitrage systems he has put up here's the list of links he created to spruik his scam, some people were fooled and lost $2K odd for an EA that will never work in real account.

1. Don't allow New registered Member post comments or Open discussion for 60-90 days would help.

This is probably the right way to filter , although the issue is that non spammers new comers will also be penalized. But I do not see a better solution as for now

C'mon @rob559

Need to brush up mate, blocking an IP address is like blocking a rain drop. Still going to get wet. Takes me about 1 second to change my IP and I have a nearly infinite supply of them.

There's just no point.
