So, what's up with all the bots?

Postby Jman1988 » Fri Mar 22, 2013 11:09 am

Honestly, for the first entire year I was here, I think I saw close to no spam bots. There were like, 1-2 every 2 months or so, maybe even 0 at times. Now, for the past 2 or 3 weeks, there are multiple spam bots making junk posts every day. They aren't hurting my feelings or anything, but I'd be lying if I said this phenomenon wasn't making me a little curious. What's happened recently to make them go bananas?

I don't know if it's related, but I haven't seen mmghouse or iGBx around recently. Did the spam bots kill them?

I'm bumping this very early, because it got buried under like, 30 spambot threads in the span of an hour.

Admittedly, there's a recent surge of spambots lately, and I'm sure the mods are as much in the dark about this one as I am. I've contacted Stooge about it and am waiting for a reply. In the mean time, it'll just be us battling it out and trying to keep them down. On behalf of the team, I ask you all to continue reporting the spam posts as it does help us in dealing with them. This is the upside down triangle with the red exclamation mark icon located on the top right hand corner of each post. Thanks.

Like Jack said, no idea.

We'll keep removing them until somebody finds a fix.

A few months ago, we implemented a new system to battle the spam bots and it could simply be a matter of updating that system. That is, of course, up to Stooge to take care of.

Just keep making use of the report system and we'll all take care of it! Thanks for your patience.
<IRC User> I wonder how long you'll last in this community Berto.
<IRC User> Probably not for long.
