  • Spammers

    hi all, as with any forum that gets linked to often... we attract a fair amount of spammers.

    they are clever these days because they AREN'T all bots, they are real humans sitting behind real computers getting paid to put ads in your face

    for that reason, they have useable emails and can punch in captcha codes that you all had to do when you signed up...

    we've got a few mods on here already, so while we aren't ruling it out for later on, we're gonna keep the mod numbers as they are, but those who have volunteered have been noted and we'll definitely keep you in mind for later


    so if the spam annoys you as much as it does us (and we all spend time each day nuking it) please if you see some spam hit the 'report post' or 'report blog' button and we'll be notified that it shouldn't be there and can aim our anti zombie delete buttons at it


    thank you all!

      It's Spammer season, Yeeehaw!

      Understeer: When you hit the wall with the front of your car.
      Oversteer: When you hit the wall with the back of your car.
      Horsepower: How fast you're going when you hit the wall.
      Torque: How far you take the wall with you.

            Everyone, when you report a post, write a stupid message to Rake.

            I just wrote Rake a poem, it was very touching.

                  have deleted heaps more spam, given the mods more spam removal and ban power... have also made the sign up process question and answer instead of coppa which the bots have obviously gotten around

                  lets see if that helps.. please report any spam posts and we'll nuke the f***ers

                      If all else fails theres always the option to sign up using a method by which the account can only be made with approval of the mods\admins.

                            Spam control has been great this last little while(aside from nancy but that was a person) Probably due to the recent changes marty/mods made!

                            Good work guys!
