The latest spam flood.

#1 Post by Joost » 26 Nov 2013 22:30

Momentarily, I once again closed the flood gates, i.e. I disabled registration for the time being after the latest spam assault. Will try to look for reasonable solutions soon...
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Also, Balrogs have wings.

I can't even count how many spam posts I just deleted. I'm pretty sure I just deleted 2 threads about all the spam by accident because my brain is just automatically going through the motions now. If this doesn't slow down, I'd say it's beyond just needing another mod or three.

EDIT: I HAVE PUSHED BACK THE AMASSED ARMIES OF DARKNESS! WE MUST CLOSE THE BREACH BEFORE THEY ATTACK AGAIN!

Thank You Led,

the registration process should be more slow...
Like: Register, email confirmation, access after 1 hour or something...

And truly, there could be an update of the forum software...
And ... more moderators
Follow the blind
Your journey, your last hope, it can begin
These passing dreams were real no fantasy
There are more things than we know
Come take my hand
