Spam And more spam
Many topics have sparked my attention mostly they are about spam. I decided to do an experiment, I payed for a host (Name I shall not state due to certain circumstances) It was pretty cheap $5.00 A month. Installing Vanilla I decided to share it on random websites. The host gave me statistics on who visits my site, of course I did not believe them or maybe I did. A simple PHP script saved the IP of users visiting my website. About 500 Hits in under an hour and stats on host never updated (Even till now they remain Statuary, though When I proxy those Results save). Disabling Registration approval on Vanilla I got flooded with spam 1000 of topics were created. Then I went to a different host $25.00 a month (With DOS,DDOS, Spam and other nifty features) Did the same thing, Statistics were updated, every time a different user came (IP) and spam never happened.
Thoughts on this guys? Do cheap hosts sell you out? OR do they just dont "Care"
