I remember a few years ago we had spam bot problems, hence our new registration proceedure, but now we got more spam.

http://www.rancorpit.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3762

It was posted, new thread and all, in an archieved game thread. There isn't a report option, so I thought I would throw it in here for Loc, Scrawpin or Gry.

Huh... Why would anyone spam this board? Our population is low and our median I.Q. is through the roof...

Not quite so. My I.Q. brings the median to just below average. In fact, I spent a half an hour trying to type this message at a Speak and Spell before my wife pointed me toward the keyboard. Sorry guys.

The answer is "it's a board"; user base is immaterial.

I wonder if it is a problem with the computer of one of the game thread participants.

I don't think so. It was their only post, so they would have had to go through all the loopholes to sign up.

Laughing I'm impressed that you got your speak and spell to handle the quote coding!

Thanks for the heads-up, Orgaloth! The thread has been deleted and the user has been locked. Hopefully this doesn't become a trend... Smile

It certainly seems to have been an isolated incident. I think it just means that we're part of the real internet, now.

Looks like more spam in the gaming groups section. They revived a 2008 post...
