The endless potions and supplements.  I've flagged several today.

Or are they all just one wonder product that cures everything?

Haha, I was hoping this was going to be a question about aliens from another planet!

Snake oil, my friend, snake oil!  Clouds in the air.  Especially those *cough* male "enhancement" * pills/concoctions.

Hey, watch it!  I'm an alien.  (The gov't says so!)

Nah. You're imagining things. Here. Have some more soylent green. =)
They make that (SGreen) up on the hill above us. "Supposedly" an herbal supplement manufacturer. We get the smell on hot days with cool nights.
Well, it differs from person to person, Pip. =)
My favorite comedy on TV is Ancient Aliens on History Channel.  The "facts" those guys come up with, what a hoot!!!

I prefer Soylent Grey....it's Aliens.......
Take this pill and instantly find the parents of your brick wall ancestor!

(What it would say if the snake oil peddlers were actually targeting the spam to the site....)

@Sharon: I need a bottle of those! surprise

You have to admit the Ancient Aliens folks are very creative . . . not entirely logical, but creative thinkers.

We're cautiously optimistic that we may have a solution to slow those down (or maybe even stop them). Fingers crossed.

I've been at it for 14 1/2 years and there is no slowdown.

My list of blocked email domains and IP#s is staggering.

I  hope whatever you try works.

We found a plugin that will check this spam reporting site to see if the IP address has been registered.  Most the spam posts we've gotten are from IP addresses that have been reported. So... we'll see!
SFS?  Cleantalk? Botscout?
Spammer Checker.
Ahh .. not a bad one.  I do like SFS and cleantalk, in particular (I have an account with SFS and do log reports with them), but we use an array of checker sites.  Honeypot is another.

(I have so many bookmarked for checking because I don't own the database, so cannot add the autoblock.  It's all done manually, which is why I sometimes do "hit and run" posts!)
At least they aren't trying to sell shoes or link to some garbage comic site. That's all I'll say.
