what subscriptions/chans have this spam problem? I assume as a new user I haven't had time to be put on the spam lists yet? I do like the idea of using PoW as a way to fight spam.

I suspect you are not a new user.

all public chans have been getting hammered make a secret chan and share it only with your friends

The majority of the spam message attack is being directed at [chan] general and [chan] bitmessage. I have disabled these two channels, and I no longer have any problems. I would be interested to know the purpose of the attack, and who is responsible for it.

Subscribe to the 24x7 mailing list: BM-GuRLKDhQA5hAhE6PDQpkcvbtt1AuXAdQ It is the first and oldest DML on Bitmessage. You must add it in the 'Subscriptions' tab to subscribe. It is not a chan. It is a broadcast mailing list. When you send a message to it the message is broadcast to all subscribers. Sometimes the spammer floods many chans, not just general and bitmessage.

> I would be interested to know the purpose of the attack, and who is responsible for it. Here is what I suspect. The purpose of the attack is to complete the process of decomissioning Bitmessage to return it to its original purpose of honeypot surveillance. These "privacy apps" are generally deep-state projects to funnel everyone with a secret into one bucket. The "developer team" has done the groundwork of stalling the project for over a year. So many users have been chased away that identifying who connects to the network is now a piece of cake. If the developers had wanted to allow users they could have at any time with just a few lines of source code. Instead they allowed it to go unabated for months. All normal users of public chans have been censored by the spammer with no response from the Bitmessage developers. We have suffered near 100% censorship on a protocol that is claimed to defeat censorship.

Any guesses as to who is responsible for the spam attacks?
Oct 14 08:26 [raw]
My best guess is Boris, the teenage russian hacker. But it could be almost any mentally retarded script kiddie. I doubt that it is any nation's security agency. The NSA or GCHQ could easily do this, and more, but they have no reason to do so. It might possibly be the global elite illuminati, who want to stifle free speech.

so when are all you blabbermouths going to post your personal broadcast addresses? the broadcast is the sure way around spamming.

Russian Hackers Indicted GRU Military Intelligence Officers Targeted Anti-Doping Organizations, Other International Agencies https://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/russian-gru-officers-charged-with-hacking-100418 Seven Russian government operatives have been charged with hacking into the computer networks of organizations working to investigate and stop Russian athletic doping, just after Russia was banned from the Olympics due to state-sponsored doping revelations. The hackers also allegedly targeted other international entities seen as thwarting Russia’s strategic interests............

You're wrong. It is not Boris. I'm sure it is Igor.
