These fucking spam bots
« on: November 23, 2014, 04:35:20 pm »


I come back after about 5 days of forgetting to look at the forum, and lo and behold, more spambots than ever.

Is there absolutely ANYTHING that can be done about these fucking things?
Silly rabbit, tricks are for S-Kills.

Hey now!

But to be honest, I'm removing at least 3-4 a day. From what I understand, there's not much that can be done besides limited new registrants to being authenticated by admins/moderators. Even then, that's not a call the mods can make.

Luckily though it's only in General Discussion.

As long as there's still discussions of a general nature going on, I'll continue pruning those bots as best I can!

They only post in General Discussion. Some forums make General Discussion a dump on purpose and give some other name to the actual general board.

tad bit of an under statement. For 3 days the general discussion was hit by spam every 3  minutes. Now more than 2/3rds of the general discussion is spam.

I'm doing my best to try and keep everything (except General, which is 50+ pages long) cleaned up, as I believe I may be the only active mod left.

On a positive note, I reached out to Jebailey on Twitter and he responded saying he and CaptainKeytar will take a look at it as soon as they can.
