Prolific Spammer Thwarted

Last month I wrote that Blog Spam Is Not A Problem as I was easily able to write a quick filter that eliminated all automated spam from my site [not this site] and since then have only suffered thru a handful of manual posts that I had to delete which is a drop in the bucket compared to an automated flood.

Just out of curiosity, I checked my 'bounced post' log today to see who was the most prolific at their attempted spamming and some Ukrainian fucker from wins the prize.

All of his attempted posts start out as domains that aren't even active, sometimes not even registered, and once they become active are quickly disabled:

Account has been suspended

This account has been suspended because of abuse. Account user, please contact support for more information.
Most of the domains, with a few exceptions, claim to be registered to this asshole with what appears to be fake information:
Registrant Name:Rick Quickly
Registrant Organization:N/A
Registrant Street1:Lenina 120-345
Registrant Street2:
Registrant Street3:
Registrant City:Moscow
Registrant State/Province:0
Registrant Postal Code:0
Registrant Country:CN
Registrant Phone:+7.95345567
Registrant Phone Ext.:
Registrant FAX:
Registrant FAX Ext.:
Keep in mind, not a single of these attempted spams got past my new filter, but this asshole is very determined and they come non-stop.

Here's a shitload of domains you can filter out:
For the naysayers that whine that blocking spam is hard, you can see for yourself it's not THAT hard and these idiots can be easily stopped.

Now go whine some more while I bask in the comfort of automatic spam stopping.
