Do you ban the bots after they post and their posts get deleted?

As it is a bit futile if they aren't, as they'll just post again.

Not having a pop, as the Nile forum was riddled with bots, sometimes about 100 posts a day from them, so I know the frustration they cause.

Yes, an effort is generally made to ban bots. I do what I can when I can on it, but I don't check the forums quite every day. Sorry for the bots that do get on here still... Crying or Very sad A number of efforts have been made in the past in the spam fight. Thanks for the reminder though.

We had a major problem with them on the Nile forum, to the point where registrations are no longer on.

The fight goes on Wink .

It posted a fair bit.

Mayhaps missed a couple of real posts in the mean time.

Yes, I know-I hope I got them all though.
I deleted the user- and spent a long while deleting posts all throughout the forums yesterday....

The trappings of modum.

On the Nile forum, we had a few hundred bot posts a day to contend with. So much so, registrations have been turned off for about 5 years now, and it is now totally dead because of them.

I hope here doesn't suffer the same fate, as I come here every day.

Potential bot alert.

New signed up member customresearchpaperonline. Sounds like a bot.
