    We're getting riddled with spam bots. Currently three of the top threads on the Cards forum are spam bot threads.

    Yes, it is getting ridiculous. Easy fix, not sure why they don't do it

    Something needs to be done about this.

    I don't get them. It seems like so much effort to post spam and everyone knows it's spam. They are pretty stupid.

    Maybe they get cleaned up after I'm already awake a while? I'm usually checking before 9am Eastern Standard Time.

    Any word about this?

    I sweep away the remnants mid mornings and ban all the ones not already banned.

    There were a lot this morning. Whew. I go to their profile and do the Spam/Clean method. Does all the dirty work for me.

    I legit ban 2 spammers a day and trash several threads. It's tiresome to be blunt

    I deny about 6 - 7 new registrants a day that IP match Spammers.
