well that escalated quickly

I want to accent how much it is for us to deter the bots if you are vigilant and keep an eye on them and report them :) Thanks for all the reports :)!

How does it deter anything to report them? It's only cleanup duty, nothing more.

I have yet to see a single bot posting twice. It's always a new account being created with only 1 post at most, rinse and repeat.

So will you keep doing this until the violator either dies or runs out of legit usernames?

You should never underestimate how gullible an average Internet user can be. If those kinds of advertisement still exist, then it has some effect. You can't tell how may people clicked the link out of curiosity or whatever.

Yes, that's the plan >:).

I am going to bring this up when I speak with Hades, but there is only as much he can do. There is so much stuff in the hands of the devs as well :p.

Well I guess your daily duty could be made easier with some sort of an automatic banning blacklist. For instance, it's not the first time I see "colon cleansing" advertisement so if a user has less than ~5 posts and creates a thread that features "colon cleansing" word combination, I'd give 99% that this is the guy you need to snipe.

Then again, I don't know if the creation of such blacklist is possible for the admins - if I recall correctly, Hades, Mowen and the rest of the admin group are not the site/forum engine original developers.

I'm sure Hades knows and they'll come up with something.

Also,

The Veterans are our community representatives


You have a user named "Anal Samurai" in the first row of your Veteran roster. I'm not sure I can take this game seriously anymore.
