Spam Patrol Part 2

Postby Joe » Sat Dec 14, 2013 5:16 pm

I know, I know... sequels always suck.

Anyway, I have shut down new registration for a couple days while I round up this latest batch of bots that have figured out the answer to the secret question and look into upgrading registration security a bit.

** Warning to lurkers with zero posts... this will likely involve me deleting accounts with no posts, so at least say Hi to us in the intro forum.

Update:

All spamming accounts should now be deleted (along with their posts). I'm going to leave new registration close for another couple days to make sure there aren't any still lingering. In the mean time, I'm going to look into updating registration security to prevent this from happening again any time soon. Please report any spam posts that you see left over.

Thanks for the hard work Joe I saw the forums filled with spam and thought it may just be the end of this quiet little place that we love :)

Bonus points for keeping this place tidy, Joe. Quite sad that people have stopped posting. Oh well. I've just realised I've passed a 10year anniversary on this forum - wow!

Well yeah, evidently anyone with 0 posts hasn't been doing any spamming. :p

And it should be easy enough to only prune accounts made in the last few months, right? No need to kill off any of the longtime lurkers, especially when they've got a 7 year-plus record going.

I'd be in for posting more! It's just, uhm, there's nothing to post about. You can find regulars in the chat a lot, though.

I expected to come back and have 15k pages of spam to sort through for a few hidden gems...

now I don't have to.

That's pretty cool. Good stuff!

Well maybe if you people would actually post or come in the IRC, this wouldn't be dead :P
