I used to post that 'guy dressed as spam' photo a lot in the spammer threads but I stopped because I think it annoyed the Mods

Oh what's this? Off Topic being spammed? The mods doing nothing to defend us from this invasion? How typical...

What the hell!?

Is there no way this kind of catastrofuck can be prevented?

I don't even know how spammers work in technical terms... I mean is there an individual out there actually typing all that stuff out, or do they have some programme that they just have to hit 'enter' and it spams everywhere?

What's the actual purpose of spamming? This is a serious question... I don't actually know why this occurs!

It took me 25 mins earlier of non stop deleting and banning to finally catch up with the spammers. Now there's even more and I'm going out so don't have the time to sort it. Sorry everyone.

And they begin again.

Do they all originate from the same IP? Not that it is so likely with that variable IP thing providers do now.

No same iP sadly.

Seriously though, is the Dyer trying to deal with this? Is it that hard to put a captcha on the registration?

Captcha would be unlikely to have an effect with these. The old spammers - the ones that'd post about 10-60 posts through from the main site would get undone by that (although I think Empire did something else as we're clearly not at that stage). But most of this lot are actually coming into the site, choosing a place before posting. I don't think these are all bots - so the captcha wouldn't help.

Many current spammers do come from the same IP but definitely not all. But even being able to ban certain IPs would be a massive help.

The only positive is that they haven't attempted to invade Grandstand yet. So if they come again retreat to Grandstand, it's our only hope.
