    I am so glad you did that in such a way so that i can't help you.

    all in all i think this is a problem for the big boss, provided we can wake him from his torpor...

      I had one of them the other day that I deleted as spam from one of my RP threads. I hope that was the right way to do it so that you could help, if not just let me know what would be better, Nunu. Though it probably is more of the big bosses problem.

        any way that solves the problem ronny. things might be a little better tied off if i can ban their profile but that wont happen as quickly as it has to go through the reported posts stuff.

          Getting rid of the individual spam bots won't help any of us either way. They make one spam post, you ban that account, they make another account, rinse and repeat.

          The solution I was thinking of was making them go away entirely, not telling each copy of the same bot to bugger off.

            Any ideas for how to do that?

              Actually, I still don't get the point of these bots Oo ? It's true... It doesn't give anything to their authors.

                If you're trying to suggest I should have shut up because I have no idea how to stop them myself, I'm going to drown you.

                  I am, because I've yet to see a way to completely stop spam without some pretty draconian measures that would make more work for Nunu.

                    We absolutely dont' want to make the people like nunu who run things around here work, you're absolutely right.

                    Nunu, shut off all security.

                      RJ you're being dramatic, I shall attempt to tweak our verification a bit more and see if i can wrangle another 1% out of it.

                          There's another method of banning that can be used on people who know how to circumvent ip bans, it's not the ultimate solution but it will keep those people quiet for a longer period of time. Probably not a good idea to share that info here as they may become wise to it, I'll send a pm to Nunu about it.

                            I still see the bots though.

                            Besides the main reason you are seeing them is because i've been working 14 hours days and am tired when i get home.
