Popped in here and I see we got spammed :-(
We are a small but active site, surprised we got spammed
Surprised WOV didn't get hit. Or maybe it did and got removed more quickly. BBB seems to be on top of things over there
I don't think the admins pop in here as often.
Maybe the Wiz or Face can set up trusted members the ability to remove spam :-)

It means we're not so small as to be beneath the notice of a cheap bot :)

I'd abuse that ability so much!

Does the "flag post" button work as before, where a certain number of flags gets a post automatically removed? I've been flagging them in hopes that it does.

I thought there was a limit to the number of posts a "new" account could create to throttle this kind of thing?

I think the programming has diverged somewhat from the other site. I flagged about 5 of them, but they didn't disappear.

Why hasn't a mod gotten rid of this?
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Because it's more entertaining than your debates with frg.

kadmiel Is already banned. That's a shame. I thought he brought an important point of view to the debate.

Any idea where one might buy a license?
