Today Mininova announced that they banned 3652 spam/scammers. Fake files, “free stuff”, and poker deals; Torrent sites are a great tool to spam and scam “innocent Pirates”.
Some time after we started mininova there were a few people that thought that uploading spam torrents would be a good idea to advertise their “GET A FREE XBOX 360” links (or PSP, or HDTV, or well you get the point ;)).
At this time we banned 3651 people (some of which are people who received multiple bans). To see if some country has more (persistant) spammers than others, I decided to compare some statistics.
If you take a look at the stats you’ll see that Germany has some hard-core spammers.
