I'm really starting to think that a CAPTCHA thingo on registration would be a good idea. :stare:

Yeah, but that isn't a captcha like the ones that actually do have "captcha" on their UI. :/

I don't think the pirated games spammer was a bot. He/she/it had an avatar. They can register even if we had ketchup. =d

Let's try something else. I changed a setting so now it asks a question that must be answered before being registered. If they are indeed bots they should fail the question. We'll see how it goes. If it doesn't work there is a harder captcha and I think I can do the captcha and the question together.

Thank God there may be less spam bots. I was looking forward to the thread in the roleplay section that was advertising dental care. I want a dentistry based RP goddammit!!

I was talking to my brother about website security and then I mentioned our bot problem and how we are using a registration question now. He says anything that gets past the question is a real person and not a bot and that he has never seen a bot get past a question before.

Yeah I just don't get why they want to spam us so much. It's exasperating.

And they're completely irrelevant things that I doubt any of us would actually want. :huh:
You'd at least think they'd spam us about games or something.

It's seemed to really pick up over the last couple of days, we've got a "ladyboy porn" spam post over in the Stuff Packs section, and there's a couple more dotted around.
