  1. Hello.

    I have recently been seeing an increase in spam bots, posting random walls of text. Why is that and is there a way to prevent it? It is not annoying, its just distracting.

    Best Regards, Joarc

    This has been a discussion we've had many times before, but the sad part is… they're not always bots. :( Sometimes they're actual humans, usually from either India or sometimes Mexico. Best way is that whenever something slips through, report it and a moderator will clean it up ASAP.

  3. The human spam bot! I always wondered how they slipped through from time to time. Thank you for clarifying.

  4. Is it possible to block keywords, such as "Garcinia Cambogia" that's what they like to discuss. :p

    If I recall correctly, there are already countless filters in place, but they always find a way to get around them.
     
  6. Fair enough. At least there is already a filtering system in action :p

    Thanks for the info.
     
  7. Every time I see a spambot thread, i have to resist posting "The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell"
