Does anyone really click on those spam links? What possible purpose can there be to such attacks? Is it there intent to render the bulletin board useless? I know of at least one bulletin board that had to shut down and relocate twice due to such attacks. Surely that's not all it's about.
I guess I'll never understand the mentality behind it.

Most of these people are overseas so you can not track them down. Russia, Asia and the Middle East are the worst areas on the globe right now for hackers to hide and not face arrest. It is becoming a huge problem.
