Although the Ukraine generated a lot greater share of web site spam in 2016 (as reported by one data base) than they did in 2015 -- about 70% to 35% -- the majority of spam at freemathhelp continues to arrive from (1) India and (2) the Philippines. There has been a significant decline of spam here coming from Russia, over the past few years.

Thank you to everyone who reports spam and suspect posts. So far in 2017, more than 50 new "members" who joined with clean credentials and then posted spam have been banned, and their not-so-clean-anymore credentials have been reported.

The overall amount of spam declines (like from Russia), when we report IP addresses and email addresses, because many spammers learn to avoid web sites that report. Thank you for bringing spam and suspect posts to our attention, by using the post-reporting tool.
