in the moment there are posts from 3 spambots online, ALL in this board (General Discussions)


i donīt oberve, but can it be that all bots post here?

would this help in getting rid of spam?


-> moving General Discussions to real General Discussions-board and leve this here for the bots.

a moderator (or any volutier with rights) (or a script?) could just delete all contents of this board when log on..

I love opening messages and having nude pics pop up.  Trying to explain that one to the wife...but honey-it's a game forum?

Yeah=what kind of games?

Hello.

It depends on the level of security the server provides. Some host providers offer very little in the way of spam protection I am also on other forum and the spam problem is very much under control on them.

We're nuking them as fast as we can. We need more power though. There are probably a number of settings we could change if us mods got admin access.

Sadly it seems no matter how much we ask we do not get it.

The spam with pics makes me not want to go in and remove stuff when I'm at the office.

I am so sorry it took so long to clean this problem up.  Hopefully it should be gone soon.

If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!
