Spamming in the Off Topic section

Postby lennonluvr9 » Sat Feb 22, 2014 2:43 pm

I apologize if this has already been brought to someone's attention, but I've noticed there's a lot of spamming going on in the Off Topic section. There are quite a few threads there advertising watching something for free. Just thought you should know, in case you werent already aware

Yeah, we're all pretty aware of the problem. We're just waiting for some of the moderators to come back so they can clean it up.

Is anyone still around who has enough privileges to maybe make changes to the forum registration process so spambots have a harder time?
Right now it feels like we have more spambots around than actual users... :(

I have noticed that the last batch of new members, there is significantly more spambots than actual users. Sadly, I am powerless other than just deleting their posts, as I am only a moderator. The only thing I can think of to combat against the spamming would be to contact one of the admins and see if there is anything that can be done about it.
