Default Ok, this if fucking ridiculous

How did Emarr suddenly become such a sudden spam target?

I noticed some increase over the past bit and kept reporting them but you just can't keep up with it these past 2 days. Plus you can only report one every 60 seconds.

I send a pm to Og yesterday offering help and act as a mod to kill this crap but haven't heard anything from him.

/le sigh

Jokes aside, I only saw the one outbreak of spamitis in the Tesla thread. Did some bot infect more threads, and I just missed them before Og deleted the post(s)?

Check the other forums outside of Steam Vent. Someone shoved a finger down the spam god's throat and it vomited all over the place.

I agree it's very bad and even worse is they are bumping old threads.

Take a look at the post counts and the join dates of those spammers. I'd say they've been busy.

They're just trying to catch up to DD on the post count.

I have done all I can do. I have said this a few times I need to start coming around more. I miss the conversations that go on here.

Don't know how the administrative end for this board is set up, but like http://www.stopforumspam.com/ was really helpful for when I was actively moderating elsewhere. If there's an entire IP range or domain used exclusively for spamming, their database helps spot it.

Sorry for not responding, Davek. I had a busy day, read your post and I appreciate your PM. I've been doing some research today and I'm going to install a mod that hopefully reduces the spam to what it used to be. I'm going to work on it now.

The mod has been installed. I hope we'll notice the drop in spammers.

Cool, my offer still stands since I know Ini and Brigiid aren't around quite as much as they used to be.

Phyllis Diller(R.I.P. ) was a prettier woman than I would be in drag. I'd be more like Divine...but with a beard and maybe not quite that big in size.

Heh, my father did drag one year for Hallowe'en. Let's just say he made Bea Arthur look pretty.
