The only other posters online are both spammers. Why haven't their accounts been deleted? One of 'em is almost up to 2000 in 3 days. This sucks.

What say, Mikey? :?

Maybe, it's an inside job. :wink:



. . . or maybe, it's jaypfunk posing as Taint Ripper and his spam army. The guy does hold a grudge against the forum and administrator, no doubt. He used to take dumps on the General board and the Legends board on a regular basis.

That's a good idea! We could get a bot that responds to posts, and watch 'em battle it out :)

Keep posting in the threads you care about, and pay no attention to the spam.

That's our only hope...

I believe there are now mobile devices that people can take on vacation with them and still take care of some basic responsibilities while they’re “on the road”. :mrgreen:

How about some form of" tick the box if you are human " type thing to stop automated spam posting .
Maybe also a week or two waiting time before you can post when you first register .
What about a fiendish Zappa quiz to test if you are a Zappaholic before you can register .

Just thinking out loud here . :)

Hurray!

I hope they've taken precautions. In my experience I get 2 to 3 repetitive posting bots a week.
