Will someone please ban quizhen806907 or whatever it is called.

The forum is lacking already because of the bots and the Nile forum went the same way and is now gone.

I, and I'm sure others, don't want the same happening to this forum.

Not blaming you MacGyver, just seen these things happen and their consequences is all.

Which phpbb is the forum running on?

I know that there was some bot controls on phpbb3, not totally fool proof, but a bit better.

Forget it. They can even breach the newest software... I don't know how any bot would get past the three-way captcha I have seen on some sites, but they did. A lot.

I've just cleaned off a lot of spam posts from the boards here and banned a number of ip addresses and user names. That seems to be about the extent that I can do at this point. I hope that helps keep the boards clean of spam at least for a while anyway.

I appreciate that, Optimus Prime.
Believe me- I get very frustrated with it too.

It's a tough road.

Quizhen was the worst one.

You're welcome, guys. I appreciate that. Let's just hope it holds.

Yes! That one (and the multiple ip addresses used with it) are banned- and that was a pain to clean out!
(There does not seem to be an option to simultaneously delete multiple posts from the same user- so if there is a situation where a spammer has posted a gazillion posts and it takes a while before it all gets cleared out- that is probably the reason.) I try not to let it linger too long as I see stuff come up- but I don't get to this site every day.
(Not trying to make excuses or puff myself up or anything- just wanted to make sure everyone understands what's involved.) Thanks again to everyone for patience and understanding.

Totally understandable.

The Nile forum was riddled with russian bots, posting porn on a daily basis, usually 100's of times a day, so I know the fight very well.

Another bot alert, beautygirl. Get banning away hehe.

Mac, my dear friend, we understand you have SO much going on your life at the moment. Trust me, we will keep the bots on check while you manage to find some time to clean it up, but please don't ever feel rushed to do it Smile

Let priorities be priorities and the forum can wait Smile

Real life problems should always take first priority.

Sorry if I come across as all aggro, not intended.

I agree with ID. You didn't come across wrong or anything, OP.
