    Default Onslaught of spam

    So we appear to be fighting off a heavy influx of spam- it's starting to affect the server load so you may experience some slow page loads and whatnot until we get it under control. In the meantime, please report any spam posts you see. Unless you think the spammers should own their posts, in which case I guess just enjoy the forum that gets you.

    Thanks for your help in halting these terrorists I mean spammers!

    So the only spam filter here is human?

    are you being for real with this post or cheeky? i mean is there forum drama you're referencing that i'm unaware of or some real spammers?

    and i don't get spammers...are they being paid to post links online? because i swear i saw an ad for that job.

    I'd assume it is the second.

    You can see them at the list of people logged on or were logged on.

    Mal+, no, we have numerous non-human spam tools that have so far kept the forum fairly spam-free. This particular onslaught is smarter than the tools.

    Yeah, it's a real thing that is really happening. We have had scads of spam registrations that have gotten past our captcha et. al. in the past several days. You might be able to see them in the lists at the bottom of the front page, Who's Online, etc. They're not usually getting far enough to post or start threads but in a few cases they have, and we're trying to catch those quickly.

    I was also being cheeky with that one line about spammers owning their posts, but I swear in all good fun (I've enjoyed the Who Owns Your Posts thread and think it brings up some very interesting ideas about the nature of the internet &c &c).

    I think it's senza's fault for advertising for a nemesis.
    The arch-enemy is striking at senza through the forum.
