Words With Friends: annoying spambots

I had pretty much gotten away from Words With Friends due to all the nonsense ‘enhancements’ making the game an annoyance. But, I picked it back up during lockdown and enjoy playing. But the last few months have seen endless spam bots starting a game and then a chat. Now, normally I’ve liked a brief chat, I’ve played against people from all over the world and a wide variety of ages. Sure, a couple times a year I’d get someone inviting me to their website to see their naughty pictures, easy to enough to quit those games.

But lately, it’s just been a total onslaught of Bitcoin scammers, trade forex and make thousands and other such financial scams. Now, I’ve worked in the financial markets for years, so I’m not dumb enough to fall for this crap. But, I do wish I could get back to normal and find myself playing with a retiree in South Africa or a student in Australia.
