The Heck with all these bots?

I didn't recall so many of them springing one after the other like daisies on a spring field. 4 just registered right now.

Was it always like this?

just be happy it's just links to scam sites, and not links to hardcore porn with picture previews posted with the [img] brackets.

I'd be fine with that, as long as it was tasteful hardcore pornography.

Oh yes, I am definitely overjoyed thinking about it that way. Because if the bots did anything like that, then maybe they'd become the kind of problem that required dealing with more seriously. And we all know we wouldn't want that to happen now, would we?

The policy? There's none, except I try to delete their posts when I see them and silence them for 30 days. I have no other ability to restrict their posts or delete their accounts.

The only good thing is they tend to post in the same threads (on TV shows and movies, for example).

has anyone ever petitioned val to use a captcha or something in order to create an account?

is there no way to permaban accounts that are obviously bots? the same bots making more posts is ridiculous.

Let's just say Valery stumbled upon some Warhammer lore and wanted to see if he could make servitors in real life. The result was Corribusbot.
