    BOTS!
    arrrrggghhhh!

    They are attempting to register at a rate of 10 an hour.
    Few are able to register and the ones that do are either banned automatically or put right into moderation so their post is not public.

    I feel so violated.


    ARRGGHHH!!!!

    Thanks.
    I feel better.

    They are annoying. However, this isn't the place to give support.

        I read through that earlier. I'm hesitant to install any new mods with vB4 around the corner.

            Does he look like he's asking for support?

              I had my fair share of headaches this past winter with spam bots. I've managed to contain it now. I feel your pain.

                10/hour is an enormous aggravation. Glad you may feel a tad better.

                    agreed, before I shut down my old board, I was getting an average of 25-50 bots/day

                      same here... my site must sucks, because i get no spam bot, and i simply use the default vB config...

                      or the spam guys are just happy with the content of my site so they do not spam it.. lol
                      oh no, i'm not going with Xenforo... come on, i'm better than that... i stick with Wordpress... rofl
