Spam Bot Notification Thread

Postby TheoW » Mon Jun 04, 2012 6:36 pm

Okay guys, this is the place to post if it looks like we have a spam bot on the loose. That way it can be dealt with right away and hopefully without to much fuss.

Also, to try and lower the risks of getting hit by a bot, I've moved the signed up to a much more secure CAPTCHA system that is, in theory, harder to break. Should keep out the riff-raff. :)

In the "Topics" entry of the "Authors" branch is an entry by Neville who is a spambot, I'm rather sure.

I'm believe that Simpson43... and so on, is a spambot, only Russian. Maybe he should be removed?
