    This is like a whole new level of spamming that I can't even wrap my head around.

    I'm going to leave this thread here for the moment, just because I can't even understand it. Either there are bots that somehow learned how to get past my kitten captcha, and also somehow knew that they couldn't edit their first post in a thread (something unique to this forum), or, and this is the truly bizarre part, an ACTUAL HUMAN registered and posted this.

    On my blog.

    I have to ask, why? What's the ROI on this? Do you know how tiny this forum is?

    Seriously, this demands explanation.

    Okay, I did some googling of the email adddress used ( and it’s a spam address originating in China. However the activity is not at all like a spam bot-- there aren’t huge numbers of identical messages pouring over hundreds of forums like you normally see. Instead there are a few different messages on a few forums here and there.

    So my conclusion is that this is a human spammer, someone in China who is paid to just search the Internet for forums, register on them, do the captcha like a regular human would, and post the message for "iStonsoft". I looked up this company but all I could find was that the domain was registered in the US with and all the contact information was locked out. Their website is pretty generic and doesn't say where the company is based, but here's a sample from their "About" page:

    Looking forward to the future, we will continue to persist with providing you more useful software and higher quality service to fulfill your multimedia demands.

    Judging from this text, "iStonsoft" may in fact be a small Chinese software company looking to make some easy money selling simple utilities to rich iPad owners in the US.

    Basically there is no captcha in the world that can prevent this. However, it’s not really the purpose of captcha to do so.

    So,, sorry but you will have to try somewhere else. Thanks for giving us all a lesson on globalization of labor, though!
