Yep, that one was repeatedly posting the same info and needs to be booted.

Can we just take a hammer to it, smash it into little bits.  :icon_wink:

rufus and I seem to have cleared them - 46 from one guy alone.

Not sure how we deal with this - may need to suspend registrations?

At the time of my initial "captain" post, there were already too many to individually be alerting a moderator.  Then by the second post they were even more numerous that it was ridiculous.  That is the kind of situation where whomever created such advertising bots ought to be held accountable for their rudeness, and fined heavily.

Yep, and to think a human invented these kinds of dudes.  It would be neat to have a human that comes up with a way to stop them.

Hmmm ... MartinJailM has 10 threads posted.  So far.  Maybe it is time to jail Martin? :icon_lol:

Well, getting back from a dance lesson and delivering a cake to my mom for her birthday, and it seems MartinJailM has been hard at work posting more and more threads.

It's probably a good idea to eliminate the pest with particularly high levels of pest control substances. Just because. :icon_lol:

Well, the spam gets less conspicious by the day. WanhedaKing has hidden the spam-link in what seems to be a copied post from a real warhammer forum, although it does not fit the current context.

I wondered if it was a hacked account. The first post is normal and fits, then a month ish before suddenly posting spam. Another post since I checked in the Kings of War section that I'm pretty sure is also copied.

Perhaps the first post was to test the waters. A kind of Turing test.

Yeah, I am slightly worried about a few other new starters with only 1 post that can be read a bit ambiguously.

Iím also half convinced Rowsdower is a bot, but canít figure out his objective yet :engel:

There could be a bot herd but I wouldn't be bothered.

The only good bot is a dead one.

Maybe it is time to take up that hammer again, and smash it into little bits. :icon_mrgreen:
