There have been a number of spam threads and threads created by bots recently. Is this under control? :?

I've reported all current ones. I copy/pasted the Russian ones and went on Translate and, apparently, the Batman vs Superman ones are ads to watch that movie for free, so I reported them as illegal/pirated software. Hopefully, these accounts' IPs will be permabanned, if not deleted.

The forum is clean, for now. Thank you for the reports. :)
Keep your eyes peeled though, spam bots tend to create new accounts even if we ban their accounts and ip's.

I tried IP banning with like 6 IP's and it did nothing so rip.
Also, it seems the best way to clear the spam is to ban the bots before they can post, most don't post right away, they register and post later.

So I suggest you other moderators check the members list and ban any accounts that look suspicious that just registered.


As for how we can stop this kind of spam altogether, we might actually have to use the "Topics/ Posts awaiting approval"
Any user that registered in the last day or any post that contains 2 or more outside links would need to be approved. Up to pixbits though.

Also.. this isn't just spamming the forums, it's spamming our poor mod logs, 1 wave takes anywhere from 1-4 pages and this is just 1 page:

Banning every 34 year old user with a jabber is going to get old fast.

Any topics with titles like "Afel, Zener, Cerno and Henex," "xensrquega wisabu fennopisatuzanem sidawillohizy wekenitz," something in Russian, or "Wow, this post is amazing fantastic MLG #BestThingEver. Thanks so much! Here's a link to a random Tumblr post!" when they're OPs are obviously spam or links to illegal/pirated movies or ads about random pills or something.

Any users with a name like AndersonJohn, 5 ways to contact them, and their locations simply saying "Russia" or "Finland" must be bots or spammers…or both!

:sisi: yeah ip banning won't work.
I've just been trying to ban ther jabber emails. Not sure if that will work either,
But it's a shot.
unfortunately, the spammer bots most likely have multiple emails.

They've gotten way smarter

We should do a report user button, there are so much new users that are spam accounts

Ahhhh…there's so many!
I'll keep using my report hammer…or whatever it's called…

Some of them seem to 'pretend' to be regular users saying "I liked 85 maps you gave me as present" when the user only joined a few minutes ago.
