It's all too easy to think that spam is an old problem, and one that has largely been dealt with. Certainly, many people will tell you that they see very little evidence of spam in their mailboxes. This, however, has less to do with the demise of the spammer and …

Skype used to have a setting that would allow me to block all unsolicited contact requests. Shortly after Microsoft acquired Skype this feature was removed. I used to get 2-3 requests per week and it was easy enough to delete-and-report-abuse although I suspect nobody ever actually looked at these reports. …

The inboxes get flooded with spam mails and searching for the really useful emails from the junk becomes more and more difficult. Is there some way to stop this other than marking each such mail as spam?

Greetings, I have a site that was created back when the dinosaours were around and of course there is a feedback form that wasn't secure and was generating spam via injections. I have implemented my typical measures; CAPTCHA, preg_match, trim, stripslashes, strip_tags, and even preg_replace. Still the spam continues. I …

Anyone who uses Twitter, and has at some point posted a link to something interesting, will have almost certainly used a URL-shortening service such as bit.ly for example.
