Spambots

Postby divinelychaotic » Fri Jan 13, 2012 7:20 pm

Well, Webmaster, what you SHOULD do is do something about all these spambots lately. Isn't there something you could do to stop them from even registering? Maybe adding another layer of protection when registering?

Split this into its own topic, as it wasn't really on topic for where it was.

As for spam bot counter measures, believe me we do everything we can to keep them out, but some will always slip by. And those that do myself and the other mod staff try to prune them out as quickly as we can.

Offending accounts are of course banned. ;)

If you do see any we missed, then by all means please use the report feature, I know its one of the the first things I try to check when I can get on.
This is my normal voice.
This is my mod voice
Please, please, don't make me use the mod voice.

I have done some tweaking to our spambot protection algorithms and questions. These should quite down the current spread of bots for now.

If you experience any issues with logging in please let me know.
