I hope the IP addresses of these low-lifes are being blocked.

I seriously doubt blocking any one specific IP will do any good and they are probably masking it and bouncing it off multiple points. You do a whois and i'll bet you'll find it's a virtual without any trace routing info. These guys are generally pretty good at getting these spam bots through, prior to leaving AT&T 4 months ago i used to see them get through their network! I was in IT there and know just how extensively it's guarded, i was always amazed how they managed!

Razzman, what is the point for them-i mean like what does it do other than piss us off? my 9yr daughter is sometimes looking over my shoulder when im on here and if she were to see this stuff it would not be good.

There is no point other than mass mailing to get even a small percentage to click the links. Whether it's actually porn or another malicious reason that's all they want. I agree it's wrong and the government does have laws against it, that's why almost all are generated overseas, you can't control or monitor them that way.
