is anyone else failing to see the point with the flooding done by "orerheacrog" all i got to say is what a tosser! you always get one who tries to ruin it for others. There are reasons for him to do it, that being a computer infected with a trojan/virus/other malware by going on those illegal porn websites! but chances for that are very slim to none.

and another rant is about mnop456, wtf is his answers about "its unlikely in hong kong. but i can understand" and there on every post he has written and it isnt his sig!

thats my early morning rant:thumb: - didnt have any sleep last night....damned night shift.

now to try and get a train to newcastle from malton :cool:

I am hacked off with it all as well-it cannot be too difficult for admin to do something about it. Who can we speak to about it ourselves? Now if all of us complained then they might just do something about it???????

Nearly every thread has been bombed this morning:mad:

Yeah that was bad today, have done a spot of tidying now!

Trouble is theres no point banning them as they rarely use the same account, a ban by ip option or as stated captcha's would come in very handy

Come on admin, help us out!

I'm a mod on another VBulletin forum, we have a human question to answer before membership and posting rights. Something as simple as "What animal is on the Peugeot badge?" would do.

If the spammer is human, you should have his IP address to IP ban him/her

Oh and another thing, not being racist at all here but is it just me who dislikes the posts in the different language?

You arent alone with the foreign language posts!!

Unfortunately for the most of the spam we are up against spambots, which is how they flood the boards so quickly :mad:

yeah those russian ones annoy me the most (well appears russian or eastern european)

i beleive with what someone said earlier where i human verification is needed to stop the spybots, spambots.

but in the end of the day your always going to get the spanners that do it to take the piss!

Thats another problem, they rarely use the same account after a spamming session so banning them is pointless :mad:

That's handy! Make new members have a sensible name! abcd123 etc should be an immediate no no.

Out of idle curiosity, what are they doing? There have been posts on some US football team, the above poetry, and many other semi-coherent but pointless topics. Why do they do this?

There are some with signatures you click that direct you to their web site, some lists of crap for sale and some generally random testicles. One a couple of weeks ago was a list of crap for sale which filled every single different forum/topic in about 5 minutes. The reason you don't see this is because the mods do a fantastic job of stopping and deleting this excrement.

Doing a good job guys! Keep it up! We are all very thankful!:thumb:
