No web form open to comments goes un-spammed, so its no surprise that via 2 different YouTube accounts I have, that there have been a spate of unwarranted, message spam porn links from folks like “goodlife100” and “xacana10”. Sadly, YouTube, awash in Googlebucks, seems ill equipped to do anything about this. It’s hard to even locate a decent contact, and when I reported this last week, I got a reply saying they were aware of the problem, were removing accounts, and asked me to keep forwarding notice of message spammers.
Well, for one thing, these accounts are still sending messages to me second account, so their action did nothing. For another, such a solution of asking me to copy paste the crap to send them, is a rather retrograde approach to dealing with spammers.
I’ll just turning off the availability to get messages, but I was expecting a bit more.
Where there is a crack, there a spammer will go. Where there is a text area in a form, there they will excrete their putrid links. You can count on it.
