Title: Sorry for the spam!
Post by: DaveGilbert on December 15, 2014, 10:16:59 AM
As you might have noticed, we're getting zapped by spam bots. I'm doing what I can to stem the tide - deleting the posts and banning hostnames and such. Hopefully that will take care of it. Sorry about that.

I've been doing that for two days now, it doesn't seem to stop :P

I noticed that the majority of the spammers were using a @mail.ru email address. A large number of users using that domain registered in the last few days, and now they are spamming the forum en mass. I've deleted them all and put a ban on that domain name. Let's see if this slows down the tide, at least.

Hehe, don't worry about it. It's nice to see you deleting them, but if some slip through what can you do. At least they are easily recognizable (!) and thus avoidable.
