Since the beginning of August a new rash of spam bots and idiots have flooded forums. They are using an automated system that defeats the registration form and allows them to register. Many of these programs and the people that operate them sell the registrations once they are in. You then start to see spam appear on the threads. The same birth date is loaded everytime. March 28, 1983.

We have been hit about 20 times and we have been banning and deleting them as fast as they come in. I have also re-activated the image verification for registration. I personally hate those things but it is one more line of defense that we will have to take. Some of the smarter bots have already found a way to defeat that as well. vBulletin and other forum creators are working hard to fix this but you know how the game goes.

Please report all suspicious posts so they can be dealt with quickly. We are trying to keep this board as clean as possible.
