  • porno spamer on vB sites

    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/member.php?u=42034

    Im not sure that user is related but I need to show you an example.

    Recently a user has been registering acounts that start with '!!!' on vBulletintemplates.com, infact ive seen the username I linked on that site aswell.

    Anyway this user will register as many names that start with !! as they can and link a porn site as their homepage. Ive already removed 30+ acounts at vBt for this, all coming from the same ip range.

    edit-

    The '!!' is used so the acount apper first on the memberlist, which is how I found out about this member.

    I always hate people who start their nicknames with non-alphanumeric characters.

    I guess I'm just suffering from a mild OCD...

        I recently denied using some random characters in usernames at my site (although I've never had this problem) because nobody needs to have them.

          Does this mean the image verification was turned off? Or that this is a user and not a bot? Or that they have a bot that can read image verification.
