First it was spam via PMs, now they've started making threads. Is there any action being taken to this other than banning the IPs and locking the threads? Nice to know Dustloop is a big enough site to attract spammers now, but it's kind of annoying...

It doesn't really take much attention at all to be added to spam lists. They really just need to get a better captcha system for the registration is all.

I deleted a pm from them a while back but now the threads are frequently popping up everywhere. Is there no peace within a domain without skimming over an ad. Next thing you know the instant you click a link a pop-up will appear.

I like how they decided to post the spam on a Friday night, when all the mods are offline having lives :vbang: I also like how the Tao forums are so dead that they just skipped posting in it...now that's class.

Can anyone trace these threads back to whoever set up this bot? If so, then I got some papers to fill out.. And I'll need to think of a cover story for this... Things may get a bit messy.

Only mods/admins can view IPs and trace it. We have to wait till they get back from drinking/gaming/sleeping. :3

Not to mention that the bots are REALLY bad at lying... Seriously? 3500$ per month? That's like more than what a Biology Ph.D makes.. All for doing what is easily considered menial labor? Anyone with a sense of how the economy works is not gonna buy this..

Not that hard to clean up mass spam. We have a handy little function called "nuke" or "delete posts as spam". It'll delete every single post made by that user and ban them. Great for killing spambots!

Well that's very nice to know, guess this thread can just turn into/remain a discussion of spam on the site?

Porn spam is little too much no? Like I mean this is supposed to be a user friendly site now porn ads are popping up jeeze...

If they can take everything they've learned from the online modes for BB and further refine their already stellar netcode, they might just make having people over obsolete.

It burned my retinas so early in the morning. Hopefully it'll be gone when the mods wake up. Seriously I shoulda seen it coming with the title and all.

Lolz, here I thought I was the only one who had a glimpse of that thread. Funny how they attempted to advertise multiple fetishes. Some was just like "hmmm, I never knew of that."

No you wern't bro, That thread needed to die ASAP! These spambots are out of control. I saw it and had an awkward moment, I then asked myself: Why in the hell did I click on this?! I knew what was in here?! No one to blame but myself I guess.

I saw this person put spam in the BB storyline thread and he's posted only a few times so I don't know if you've caught him yet. User name: nanhaiguanyin
