    The fellow who submitted those is the most interesting spammer on the list.

    He creates proxy sites, submits them, and then parks the domains. It's a lot of work, so he must have it scripted.

    I delete his submissions when I'm awake. Nathan is working on a script run the quality checks automatically.

    I just deleted those and sixteen other proxies that went down or got parked.

    Thanks for the report man!

    What puzzles me the most is the fact that most parking companies just ignore direct linking traffic, so I don't see the point in submitting those.

    Most of the spammers proberly haven't been doing it for very long and I bet most of the parking companies ban them a few days before payment

    They don't need to ban them, their system just auto-ignores the traffic, that's all.

    It's basically something like:

    if $traffic_referral == "Type In" or "Search Engine" then Pay,
    else Ignore
    endif

    (I love my scripting skills )

    There's ways to blank referrers which I'm pretty sure they are doing... if only coding was that easy

    We hit a bit of a snag with the auto-cleaning script.

    We're still only cleaning the list when I look at it manually.

    I just deleted and banned 22 "proxies", and I generally do that twice a day.

    It almost makes me want to turn auto-approval off, but I'd hate to go offline and have the page visitors cut off from their source for fresh proxies.
