SPAMBOTS

Postby DrunkenSamurai » Thu Aug 10, 2017 7:22 am

It looks like we got hit by a couple of spambots. I have banned the accounts and I am trying to clean up the mess. There are over 800 posts to delete. Sorry for the mess.

Looking for a Game forum has been cleaned out. I hate spammers. The good news is almost no one uses these forums anymore so the impact has been very light. :lol:

All fixed now. I banned 4 users and deleted about 1000 SPAM posts. What a mess.

Well, I appreciate your work on this forum.

I routinely recommend this site to newbies in the area.
I hope the site isn't abandoned.
Cuz' I really dislike Facebook.

Yeah I prefer the forum concept over FB groups as well. Forums are much easier to follow and have better organization. Sadly FB is easier for the typical user and seems to be gaining favor. I don't have much hope for the future of these forums.

I have not given up yet. Still banning and deleting posts. Maybe someday people with some actual content will return. I am starting to think that the internet is really only Facebook now. :(
