Please don't respond to spammers

I tried the Slug's way of dealing with the Chicom Spam bots and much to my surprise, it works. Whenever the attack starts and the board fills up with ting tong characters, I simply click on the current user name that the spam bot has adopted and set it to be ignored. Then I refresh the page and hey presto, all the posts with ting-tong characters are gone. Who knew? Kudos to the shiny arrse for thinking up a way to deal with the Chicom spam bots that infest our board over the nighttime until the grown-ups figure out a more permanent solution. :mrgreen::salut:

Works a treat. It's like they were never here.
 
They're bloody everywhere!

Top tip to unclog your screen of ching chong heeyaa: Ignore the user. Refresh screen. Bing! Chicken flie lice gone.

You, young lady, are brilliant. It works. Bless you, Thank you.

CO's can you award the lady an ARRSE Cross for service to ARRSE above and beyond the call of duty.
 
The hackers are clever. I would like to know if they could show me Hillary's 30,000 deleted emails!

More seriously the hackers seem to have no realistic goal. Chinese ads on an English language make no sense. Could they be seeking some sort of backdoor into user accounts.

They don't care. It is all about promoting their websites or their actives to the top of search engines to maximize their profit.
