You know, rather than "Spot the Spambot, we could change the NEWEST USER to NEWEST SPAMBOT and you have to change it manually to something else in a menu or something before you can post.

But untill then, I put 100 credits on ALL new users. Why not, they all seem to be spambot.

Actually... that almost makes sense... make the lowest ranking "Spambot" until you've posted ... 5 (10?) times? Very Happy

Exactly! Twisted Evil Sort of...

You have to manually move from one list to the other before you can post, like maybe a button at the bottom of the page that says "I Are Smart Enuf To Pust" Or something stupid so Spammers will ignore it (It should be spelled like that."

Hmm. I'm leaning towards alprazolam6 being a real person but a very very stupid and childish one at that. For one thing the website they listed forget to put a . after the www, something I don't believe a spambot would do. It also has all of the information filled out with various profanity.

It seems someone has being dooing the sweeps. Most of our spambot friends seem to have been deleted. Though there's already a new one. JamesWilliams, I'm looking at you.

...and JamesWilliams is no more... Very Happy

I'm hoping to implement some mods that will help cut down on the spambots. I'll keep you updated.

Ooo, ooo! I wanna play, I wanna play!

I'll choose Mark_Nelson for the block.


And 17 on Esjs being a spambot. Who uses a name like that?
(And who makes a wager like 17?)
