A little late, considering a new thing implemented like last year pretty much removed all threats of spambots.
must be some sorta side effect of the hatchling or maybe she should stop going down on Miyamoto.

Although I may seem to be a spam bot if you check how active I am at the moment, I am not one :cool: .

Yes, a spammer as in just posting frequently, not a spammer that posts spam posts. And not that this has to do with anything, but obviously was spelled wrong.

Someone made a bunch of spambots and clogged up both MDB news and General Metroid Discussion. There are going to be a lot of deleted threads and accounts tomorrow. Oh wonderful, now the Prime section is a solid wall of spambot threads.
Suckers.

Thanks for the notice. The forum makes killing spammers extremely easy - deleting all their threads in one click. Should be all cleaned up now. Let us know if it happens again.

Good job, guys. the View New Posts page wasn't all spammed when I just logged in save for two such threads; one of which already got reported.

Killing these spammers is about as easy as killing a Beetom or those little purple bugs that crawl on you in MZM. :D

It looks like the spammers/spambots have somehow bypassed our spambot countermeasures (Q&A) even after we changed the questions. For now until further notice, registration to the forum will be by admin approval only.
