Wright Chat Spam Is Not Right

First, thank you to the moderators for managing the spam.

Second, I am curious. Does spamming actually work? Can you (site moderator) tell if they achieve click-throughs (evidence of spam success)? Spamming feels very 2005 and wonder why people waste their time, unless it is all bots.

I never pay attention to spam, and delete all email unread from sources I do not recognize. Some that I do recognize, I delete unread.

Wondering about this site.

Email filters are great these days.

If you look at the bottom of the pages here, you will find that the forum software is very old. There was once an effort to upgrade it, and that did not turn out well. There are no ads, and therefore no revenue to pay for the latest software.

Here is the protocol that gets followed: completely ignore, never post a response. A moderator will eventually get around to deleting.

If you ever look through the spam folder on your own email on your computer or the web based email page, you will be amazed at how many spammers still try.
