A world plagued by bots which invade every communications space---Lovecraftian? Maybe if they were primordial bots summoned up by an evil spam sorcerer.

Throw some promotions around. I'm more than willing to do a little light spambot elimination every now and then.

I'm thinking about it. Right now I'm the only watch-dog on duty, I think.

Chris inadvertantly changed the admin account password; I've been meaning to ask him for it so I can modify the registration system to make it impossible for bots to register.

I'd be rabid to shoot some bots myself... even if they do seem "quarantined" to the "general" category, how long will that last??

Gotta nip it in the bUd!!

What disturbs me are all these dark, mongrel 'foreign' bots with their strange tongues and barbaric ways!

I'm getting malware and fraudser warnings at the site now. Earlier some IP latched onto mine while I was browsing the forum and I couldn't shake it, well, not easily. Intriguing.

I don't know how it works with Simple Machines, but on my vBulletin board we just have a simple question that anyone who knows anything about the subject would be able to answer (i.e. what's the missing letter in "ARK_AM").
