Mods: List of spammers w/ links & search terms

Recommended Posts

Nah, I once banned 8 accounts in a row. It's not getting any sillier than it already is.

Shouldn't more be done to make it less silly? :D

Well, I think the issue with that is that it might end up making it difficult for actual people, who aren't spammers, to join.

Plus, for every step we could take to count down on spambots, the people who make the spambots come up with two more ways to get around it.

If one or two custom fields were added to the registration form, that would throw off most of the spambots and cut down on registrations significantly. Just make them really simple (like "what color is the sky?" or "are you a spammer/spambot?") and that will help.

Technically not a spammer, but a little rude to promote yourself in someone else's review thread: http://ocremix.org/forums/showpost.php?p=624139&postcount=16

Just pointing it out, in case it should be dealt with. Guess we should expect ppl to try to hitch a ride on our search engine importance level.
