  • Did anybody else see this before Mattew gave this spammer the boot? This wasn't a typical spam effort that I'm aware of...

    Here's a screenshot...

    His words ring hollow, considering his(?) acts. Again that proverb comes to mind, "The Jew weeps as he strikes."

    "I was just sleeping with your wife as a favor, to show you how unfaithful she is! Lucky for you I came along; whew, you really dodged a bullet there! You're welcome!"

    How much of that effluvia did you imbibe man? Talk about "takin' one for the team." ...
    "Lord, have mercy".

    I would have to say that I agree with you completely... but I'm a sympathizer for the Russian people, if you haven't noticed, that many of them are beginning to yearn for the relief from there bondage from schism by the implementation of the Consecration to Our Lady...

    I don't think the dude gives a rip about the Russian people, but instead was just getting a manipulative dig in.

    I certainly wouldn't take his word about what Matthew has or hasn't done either, or if it is shown that M has done as charged I'd not be to ready to conclude as to why.

    Plus if you think about it, what kind of creature does something like this? 'Just makin' you laugh...'

    "Sure, really, I believe you; no, really really..."
    "Lord, have mercy".

    Being I'm not "techie" I couldn't say exactly what the ins and outs are, but I do know that IP addresses originating out of Russia are blocked by Mattew... and I can understand why as a whole.

    Your comment is my only reason of coming back. I don't care to spam your forum anymore but I do ask that at least your owner will ban this account and leave my post.

    I cannot and will not accept being called Jew, this is why I return. So here are some quick facts:

    - I am not Catholic but have studied Traditional Catholicism and different manifestations, Sedevacanatism, itd. online. While they do interest me it is honestly exclusively from the spiritual anthropological view and I find myself in strong agreement with many of your circle's socio-political views, still I am not Catholic. I am Orthodox, that will not change.

    - Why did I really spam your forum? Because I troll sometimes, no specific formula, all different types of sites. Why did I spam your forum? Honestly? 2 reasons - 1.) I grew tired of having to use VPN in Brasil, USA and so forth just to read your site and found it hypocritical and irritating that people who speak of Fatima so much and consecrating Russia to the Sacred Heart have this very country blocked from access. ... 2.) I find often myself irritated when reading some of your theological positions and find them absurd. Additionally, I also see many and constant dramatics in your church and cannot determine why you will not simply just accept the original church with all valid sacraments, valid everything in every way and accept Orthodoxy rather than remain locked inside this struggle with Rome. Summary: I just cannot understand you people's theological rationalizing.

    - As above, I troll many forums but admit this is first Christian-related forum and now think even that was some kind of bad idea. At least you people's sect has some form of insight into what is actually occurring in our world today from the politically sober view. So I will quit spamming your forum and hope that your webmaster will enact the ban on this account without deleting my one post.
    I would leave links to many websites that I feel you should be exposed to and yes I have many that are in English and multiple languages that I really want to leave but I am sure that doing so would increase risks of even my one worthless post being deleted so I will not leave Orthodox sites but if you want news sites from good perspectives, I leave you this:


    Sorry for spamming your forum.

  • Polite spammer.

  • He's full of it though.

    Besides the fact that the One True Church founded by Christ is not a "sect", Brazil is not blocked as a country. I might have blocked one or two addresses from there, if any spammers or ex-members happened to live there, but I unblocked Brazil well over a year ago. There are simply too many Traditional Catholics there to block the country. That's where Bp. Thomas Aquinas is based, for crying out loud!

    I also wasn't using a high-end IP address database for determining the country. In other words, sometimes it makes mistakes.

    To block a country, I have 3 criteria:
    A) Minuscule number of Traditional Catholics
    B) Equally minuscule number of English speakers
    C) High % of bots, compromised computers, and/or hackers -- i.e., "high risk"

    So if the country is HIGH RISK as well as LOW POTENTIAL REWARD, then I block it.

    By "reward" I mean having legitimate users from that country visit and use CathInfo.

    So there explodes one of his main excuses/reasons for spamming the forum. Maybe he should have just written to me and given his (normal) IP address, and I could have looked it up. "Oh, your address comes up as being in Ukraine. That's why you were blocked. I removed the block." I've had that very conversation with someone before. There was a HUGE mistake like that in the country lookup.

    Incidentally, I'm no longer adding more and more ips from ANY country to the block list. I stopped that process when I upgraded to the new software (1/2 a year ago). So right now my list of blocked addresses and address ranges is only going one direction: down. Except for adding a few addresses here and there when I perma-ban someone...
