Attack of the 50ft spambots
« on: November 12, 2008, 01:15:38 pm »
Some of you may have noticed a lot of spambots have been popping up recently.

If you spot another one (and believe me, you will know when you have spotted one) report the post, or better yet PM me (I check my PMs more often than my emails, usually) and I will bring the banhammer down on them.

That is all.


Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Why are they popping up recently? We've never really had a problem before. Do you know something that we don't? Is there anything you folks in the administration can do to keep them out?

Does it count if they haven't posted yet?  I wonder why there are spam bots, never happened before...  At least not in the time I've been here(plus the month I hadn't registered yet while my brother was registered).

If you have good reason to suspect a spam bot before it posts feel free to bring it to our attention.

Why yes! Unfortunately theres this annoying little technicality in the constitution that prevents us from getting rid of the spybots and trolls and making the forum a paradise. Now, remember, when this goes to referendum you vote "yes" on the 'Ultimate evil Mod empire' ballot, mmkay?  :)

I suspect this person is a spam bot, or at least a bot.  Because his website is too long for one thing, and the link is misgiving...  It brings you to a ****** website.  It promises an antispam solution. http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?action=profile;u=4461

You know it's kinda funny actually. Do those bots really think they are going to sell more ****** than TV does simple because it's the Internets?  :P

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I've spoken with Steve about the issue. He mentioned that he has increased the security on the site hopefully this should help.
