    I think we had that earlier, but now it seems that it has been disabled again, or the spambots know a way around it.

    That's a shame, there should be some way to stop them.

    If there is a five post limit, don't you think they will just spam the existing threads instead?

    Skaara , i don't like that you have to put time from your personal life to delete the bots, maybe raising the level needed to open threads could be the way to go.
    Otherwise, i suggest closing the creation of new accounts until Lusters has found a way to stoip them definitely.

    I have never seen a spambot in an existing thread, maybe the mods removed them before I could notice it.

    The spambots used to post in minor degrees in threads instead of making their own threads, but as they grew, they began posting more threads and less posts.

    Everyone, Luster says he, for now, has edited the forum in a way to prevent the spambots to a degree as a temporary solution. Hopefully, there'll be a lot less of them lately until we can completely get rid of 'em. ;)

    I just found out today that there's a way of moving all the spamthreads in a forum-section at once instead of moving them one by one, which is what I've been doing all the time. And of course, I discovered this after moving all the threads which were more than they have ever been. Well, no reason to mourne over this. More reason to celebrate; I can now move spamthreads much faster and easier :D

    Posting in old (dead) threads is called Necro-posting, referring to rapists who have intercouse with dead bodies, called necro-philes.
    And you know what Rampage means :)

    Internet telemarketing sounds retarded, but it just means "far marketing", and thus, if the poster sits in Straya and markets in Inglin, it's actually tele marketing
