Ask HN: Spammers got smarter or Gmail is no longer good?

Same problem as well; there are so many attack vectors it's absurd.
I've tried rspamd, SpamAssassin, and so many other alternatives. Then I decided to try writing my own in JS.
Spam Scanner (work in progress) is at https://spamscanner.net with source code at https://github.com/spamscanner. Trying to do it in a privacy-focused way, which is incredibly challenging to say the least.
Fortunately we're thinking that with ARF in combination with human curators (privacy-focused where sensitive data is redacted during curation process), and a combination of tech - will make this at least a bit better - and completely open source too.
We're in the progress of building an SMTP alternative, so we're not just a forwarding service (Forward Email at https://forwardemail.net) - and I hope to have Spam Scanner hooked in to individual inboxes as well, so it gets smarter for the individual users as opposed to group-think.
I'm hoping that we can at least make things a bit smarter with some scrappy measures over time. Hoping to launch SMTP by April so you can use Thunderbird, Apple Mail, or K-9 for instance with your own inbox running Spam Scanner.

For a detailed description of these fields, refer to the docs. Typically, the result in the is_spam field should be enough to give you confidence that your email will not be marked as spam. Note that spamscanner does not assign a numerical value but instead opts to return a boolean.

I used the ultimate Nginx bad bot blocker on a couple of my side projects, and it is a pretty good project https://github.com/mitchellkrogza/nginx-ultimate-bad-bot-blo... . Apart from the Cloudflare offers UA blocking and AI driven bot management too. Most of these bots are for content scrapping and then creating search spam results. I am a one-person show, and it hurts both financial and resources wise on severs. So I block them.
Is this a attempt to hack my website?

Same experience here, one spammer DOSing my site, always with similar patterns. I'm already behind Cloudflare and use https://github.com/mitchellkrogza/nginx-ultimate-bad-bot-blo... but I still have to identify and block them manually, which is annoying and a waste of time. Some IP-range blocks affected users so it's not fine grained enough. I wish I could identify, expose and sue them into oblivion.
