I hope that the SMF update will cut back on the spam,
which means less irritation for all sboxers,
as well as less spam swatting for the admins and mods.
(One could go over to the SMF web sight, and see what the
changes are between the two versions).

just the upgrade and the common anti-bot pluggins wont help the spam surge. the only way I was able to solve it was installing a plugin that makes the registration available only after answering a question like "two plus 2 is =". that blocked them from subscribing to my board.

cheers!

Which new registrants should see, now. According to the logs I've been watching, the bots are smashing up against my rocks like stupid sailors to a siren's song.

Oh, wait......

Since most of the bots that actually post are from Asia, doesn't cheering their failure make us racist?  :uglystupid2:

what Cee illustrated!

not racist, just evolution in action

(the question to get over the troll's bridge will hold them for a bit)

(I've seen a few spams since the upgrade,
 that the mods swatted,
 they might have registered pre-upgrade)

I spent a while last night (and this morning) discovering hundreds of pre-registered/dormant spambots. It's going to take a while to clean them all up, but I think things will get back to normal. Coupled with the next big upgrade I have planned, shit's gonna get really awesome. *fingers crossed*

I doubt it.

As a GloMod, fixing this is beyond my powers.
I just passed it up to the Admins.
