I didn't bump it, I simply promoted it in a botlike manner!  :coolsmiley:

I haven't ruined The Shadowbox neighbourhood. If I venture higher than Stream Of Consciousness I get a nosebleed. So at least those sections are still safe & respectable.

The Shadowbox is actually very well-maintained - especially in comparison to other high trafficked forums or forums of a comparable registration/post count. So whenever someTHING disrupts the normal peace and flow, it's way more noticeable than it would be on other sites.

So the occasional spam bot or spammer (a human troll!) is to be expected, but don't fret too much about it.

Very true. Same forum platform elsewhere has at least 15 bots a day but that means nothing to a good mod. They have notches on posts for this kind of thing.

I think there should be a Shadowbox No-Prize for the best reply to a new spambot thread....   :D

got 'em.

Thanks to peeps who used the "report to moderator" button :) - that shiz works. but if the bot has 20 threads in one forum, just report one or two and mention that there's more so it doesn't clog up our inboxes. Some of you did, right on - thanks!

a suggestion to the non-mods

if you use the Report to moderator button,
post that you did so on the bot thread.
the mods only need a single notice.

save the mods and us non-mods some effort ...

thanx!

I don't know from first-hand, but my understanding is that there's a miniscule
per-hit payment from the sites they link to.  Internet pharma and such.


There's also the theory that they're sponsored by the spy-agencies of various
countries to mask those countries' more nefarious cyber-activities.

I suspect that both are true to some extent or another.

I was not really bothered about them until the peodophilia one showed up (I think the mods killed it pretty fast)

i know the mods are fairly timely, but would it be possible to give a few non-mods deletion power in general discussion? i nominate len.
