Spammer-thread-rant (& Spam-Hunter! Comment Thread)

Arrrgh! Today it's particularly upsetting. Adultmovie spam in the General section.
Those spammers have no decency at all. Crap like this on a game-site

And of course at a time when there is no Admin online at all. This kind of **** shoudn't last here for more than a second (excuse my language, this is very upsetting)...

I know - spotted it when I logged on this morning. I PM'd Nether, as he seems to on most out of the admins, but I havent seen any on yet today (UK day, that is, 11.06am)

Spam threads are annoying, but ones with porno links? Theres a lot of kids that use this site, and that is just completely unacceptable. I dont know how the heck the spammers can be stopped though - they would just start up another account and do the same again. Might be bot-automated. Noticed a fair bit of spam recently - seems to be more than we used to have. I dont know what it was like on HQ, though - same problem there maybe?

I must ask, DragonSlayer, what the heck is feldercarb? I have seen several people use that word...

just wanted to add that I know it isnt the fault of admins/mods/serious site users etc, incase my words could be intepreted as having an element of "finger pointing" in them

Ditto here! It's as I said, spammers of that kind have no decency. And yes, it's the links in said post that is really unacceptable.
Regarding "****", Robaula, it's the result of the language filter when you use a certain word for "droppings".

And it happens again! This time at 11:24 PM! Maybe there should be a restriction. Like you can not start your own thread until you have 20 posts or something like that.

They do not stay around too long, but they are damaging to the community while they are here. During the last 2 days we have had 3 spammer threads (that I witnessed). If I was investigating this site for the first time and I saw that, I would never come back.

Yeah those are quite annoying

Annoying? Yes. Damaging? I don't know about that. Almost all the public message boards that I frequent get some degree of spam posters.

Well we can look at it in a good way. Heroscapers is becoming a rather well known website. I mean 1.5 spam threads a day!

I loves me the spam threads. Seriously. Part of the fun is trying to put the SPAM smiley in there before Nether deletes the thread. Wheeee!


I'm so lonely.

Waiting for my old avatar to dry off. And to quit stinking, too.

I prefer the Ban Me! option. I was just a little sick of it today. I mean it seems like there has been a spike in spamming. Or maybe I have just been online longer today.
