    so since i now know you guys track ip addresses is there a way to find the source of this kind of spammer and destroy it, or you still have to kill it thread by thread member by member?

    Well in that case we did spaminate the ip address. But a lot of these guys use proxies and have a different address for each spam account, so you just have to do it the old fashioned way.

    Out of curiosity, what's the country of origin for most of the spammers?

    Probably a question for someone more spam-experienced than me. When I check IP addresses, it just gives the number, not the location or anything. But given the time that most spam happens, aka, middle of the night in America, I would assume Asia or Europe.

    Can I point out that AB/DC is the javyn of...well, every other part of SF?

    He's been warned before about DT-ifying every part of SF yet...he still does it... only trolls, shits everything up and likes to jack himself off over it while doing nothing except make other shit absolutely fucking unreadable.

    Look, whatever you guys do is perfect, infallible etc. Just pointing it out.

    Humans or bots? I can't imagine it's humans. Some are clearly the result of searching the archive and generating an almost reasonable sounding message. A real human would take too long to do all that searching. Hell most of the people asking questions don't do a fraction of the searching needed. But a real human would likely post a better post.

    That's a fairly simple way to relate IP numbers to the actual info

    What happened to the 100 post minimum for CE?
    I think I saw tapatalk mentioned as the culprit at some point? I just assumed it would be fixed.

    Yeah, he is awful.

    i don't know. on a forum full of narcissistic, over-amped adolescents, we need someone to set the bar. the rest of us look like mr. rogers compared to him.
