Bot block

It seems that we're finally rid of the bot plague we've had for such a long time. I've installed extra security methods to the sign up form meaning that bots have found it much harder to decipher. Hopefully this isn't preventing real people signing up - anyone having any trouble with it email me at maxy@rpg-palace.com

One or two bots still get through, mind you (was about 10 a day before, now only 2 in a week). I should be able to eliminate this entirely by removing some of the more commonplace fonts. If that succeeds we will remove the automatic moderator preview on new topics in GD.

What exactly are bots for and how are they made? Are they just to annoy?

Well, they're supposed to advertise products. They don't advertise to people who genuinely need it right now, but rather to people who are just curious enough to click the links. A curious person would look at pr0n from forum ads. A smart person would know better (besides the fact that internet porn is distasteful anyway).

I'll have to take a look at these new security measures. I'm very curious to see how they work.

Men who don't look at pictures of naked women aren't men. And they aren't women either, because a lot of girls I know like porn too.

I have a girlfriend. I'm intelligent. I am a programmer.

I love porn. Laugh

Actually, my programming abilities are VERY useful when making scripts to run through porn sites and catch videos and pictures to display to me. Ah, programming has many applications. Grin

However anyone might slice it, we ALL love porn. It's hardwired into our brains. I'm sorry if you're not secure about yourself enough to admit it.

i do't think we love THAT kind of porn.

Child porn and pictures of children naked are 2 different things, my friend. The stuff you find in textbooks isn't child porn because it's for study purposes, and does not depict a child in a sexual act.

As an extra step, members in the "newbie" group (fewer than 10 posts) cannot post in Site Advertisement. I don't think we've ever had such a policy, and I don't like restricting access, but we are getting far too many spammers right now.

for the last 2 weeks we find more than 50 bots registered on the site and posting sht ads and pRon materials.
Yesterday we update our captcha system so now we thing that no more bots will signup.
Now we need help to clean the board from previously registered Bots.
If You see any kind of advertisement on the board PLEASE report us so we can ban the bot and its Ip.
Thank ALL of You in advance

Yah i got that too Ravso. Spam-bot.

And on the pr0n issue, absolutely everyone loves pr0n. It's natural instinct.
True, people with GF's don't need/want it as much, but its nature's way to cope with everyone wearing clothes. Laugh

Back to the Spam-Bot issue, no matter how hard you try, you'll never kill'em all
Besides, I think the funny Spam-Bots should be left alone, then natural selection will play it's role and in the end, we won't have Spam-Bots, we'll have Fun-Bots! Sticking Out Tongue
