I was surprised no one has reported the essay paper links. I just reported 10 without clicking a link, just a post.

Ok. I think I have this mess cleaned up. Owner had to make a few changes to give me access to locking these bots out. Hopefully it is now under some kind of control.

And rebel. plenty of people reported the essay links. As a matter of fact I got more reports on that then the porn links. Bunch of perverts :lol:

It would take a lot of time some days to check the post of new members, I'd end up deleting dozens of "new accounts" daily but it keep the board clean. At that time most the IP's were coming out of Russia or the Ukraine.

nowadays its just where the proxy's theyre using to mask their IP's are located. [accent] from russia, with love, comrade [/accent]

god only knows where the keyboard wonders are actually sitting at munching on half stale chips and drinking warm sh!tty beer....


its like the spoofed spam calls you get all day on your cell phones. They just need to make robo calling illegal, period.

Yep, it doesn't really matter were the ip says it's from...just that it's a turd at the keyboard.

I started off blocking the ip and user name since I only had mod powers but that took to much time and we could have been blocking good guy ip's. Finely the owner of the site gave me limited admin power, like gds got, so I could actually do something.

Funny thing was the turds were the only ones registering new accounts :lol:

Use captcha you got to be kidding, that's nothing but a pain for us that run security software.
I have to disable my security to enhance a websites security ain't happening. I would go somewhere
else instead. After further review captcha sucks!

Depends on the captcha, some require a sort of pop-up that says "I'm not a robot" then maybe has you identify some random graphics of cars signs etc. Some of the ones available for this software doesn't do that, it is strictly text based and does not trigger any security software that I am aware of.

so while the changes seem to be slowing down the spam...

we still seem to be getting a few new users every day who can find a work around and get a post - or several in.



someone really must have a hardon for this site to be putting in this much effort for what i *HOPE* are zero clicks on their links.


whoever you are, please fill out this form so we can help eliminate you forever

There seems to be another one in the My little girl thread I started. Called me Stephan, I guess to imply he was familiar. So this generally proceeds a wave of pornographic term papers.
