I think they are finding us through twitter. I doubt there is a hell of a lot we can do.  :violent1:

granted they have poor asians doing capcha's for them,
there may be little the mods can do about it
(beyond deleting them)

it's not yet anywhere as bad as it was on the old box

It's like that broken clock that's still right twice a day....

Even though he didn't know he was talking to YOU, he was talking to you,
so I guess even spambots can serve a purpose for good.....  :)

They post, it gets deleted, and the spam bots get banned.


TheShadowbox shows up on google - that's probably where they are coming from.

Tip: don't reply to threads, ignore 'em and report them (reporting a spam bot once is enough - as it sends an email to the mods and we can delete their entire posts/threads from the user's profile. if you send 100 reports it'll spam our email inboxes).

they're caught and deleted/banned quickly, it's a temporary nuisance.

Can't you update the board? from the current version to the 1.9.11? that may stop some bots.

I assembled this team for purposes of a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen thing, but in reading this thread it occurs to me they're all highly bangable. Yeah, even Spider Jerusalem.

Sounds simple, doesn't? It's not - unfortunately.
