Counterassault the Bots

Post by Mir » Mon Apr 07, 2014 10:23 am

Thoughts and ideas? Is there anything we can do about it? Or are we doomed to be continually harassed by these Frenchies?

Do we have a CAPTCHA? It's been a gosh-awful long time since I registered, and I don't know what we've done with the process since then.

If we don't have a CAPTCHA, we need a CAPTCHA.

We should certainly have a vote about this CAPTCHA thing... :luke:

I think we should have a vote on whether or not to vote.

Whoa whoa, Pops. Only Green Squadron folks can vote. We had a vote about that not too long ago. And yes we voted on whether or not to have a vote.

I think.

Well, we have appealed in several PMs to our Admins for the last couple weeks to give us Mods, or at least one of us, the ability to ban IPs, but for some strange reason none of them have responded to our hails.

The offending spammer, which is creating all these usernames, is using one IP, which happens to be in St. Petersburg, Russia.

This spammer's ability to do simple math and get past our spam stopper is amazing.
