hopefully they won't be back in a month. i don't remember the phishing/spambots posting more than a few times each.

there should be a way to make sure phishing/spambots can't create an account and post, period. i don't think the "intelligence test" works like it should. but i may be wrong; these accounts may actually be created by the vermin themselves.

The weird thing is that the account in question was created in september last year, but never posted anything until now. Unfortunately, we mods don't have the power to permanently ban anyone; the only one who can do so, is Valeriy.

you can permanently ban an account, but anyone or anything can just make another one. it's a losing battle either way. we might as well assimilate or be destroyed after the Awakening.

this isn't a problem, just something i'm curious about. this user doesn't have a "hero" designation under his/her name. their custom status is only a comma with a space after it, and that doesn't show up as their custom status under their name, either. another oddity: the profile claims that his post count is in the negative, but he actually has posts still available(meaning, he probably posted a bunch of times in a row to get the negative post count).

i'm guessing this happens because having a negative post count through repeating posts, tricks the hc software into thinking that that user doesn't really exist, so that no hero designation/custom status appears? anyone want to weigh in on this?

I'm not sure, but by the looks of it, Fred might first have become active outside the heroes game forums after Wog_edn stopped posting, which is kind of weird to consider.
