I've straight visited this forum representing the at the start outdated and I'm in a pint-sized perturb with my academic essay. My school advised me to pop in a website with opportunity to get essay from this website. How do you expect, can it be worthwhile suitable my college essay?

Oh poor, poor NWR Forums. You've had to endure a month of increased spambot activity breaching your defenses as your great champion went on a mystical quest of knowledge and power. But fear not, for very soon, at some point this very week, Khushrenada (you're self-proclaimed King) shall have home internet restored and return to stir up some activity within these hallowed halls of subforums. Already the spambots tremble at his mere name knowing that he shall smite them all down with a great fury of Internet rage, the swiftest and most overwhelming of all the rages. Behold! The Dark Ages of the forums is near its end. The Forum Renaissance is now at hand! Prepare thy bodies!

Ok.


Better yet, I grant you the mysterious forum powers of Vudu. He's not doing anything with them so maybe you can do something with 'em. (Of course, granting you his power is only the first step. Next is actually bestowing it on you and the bestowing part of the equation is handled by Insanolord. But from what I can tell looking at his to-do box, it seems that giving you Vudu's powers is second on his list right behind re-organizing the forums so you should see those powers any day now.)

I jinxed myself. A few hours after I posted about my return, the Internet company sent me an e-mail that they've been unable to arrange an install this week as I had asked for and I'm still waiting for them to now confirm and finalize a date. So frustrating. Clearly, the spambots have a man on the inside working with the Internet companies to try and get their revenge on me.

Not to my knowledge, but maybe I should bring that up. If we're going to do a major reorganization of the forums it might be nice to do that at the same time.
Title: Re: apex booty pop (the spambot thread.)
Post by: Khushrenada on January 12, 2018, 12:01:19 AM
I did send you all some advice on how I've been banning spambots which I think has been helping in the past year and half I've been a mod. It often seems like there is an average of 3-4 spambots a day that join up on our forum. A lot of times, I'll check the newest members that joined the next day I check in the forums and compare their profile information with sites that hunt/list spambots and ban them before they strike. Still going to get ones that spam as soon as their profile is created but I think it helps keep the activity down that way and by banning their IP address early, it can prevent duplicate spambots using that same IP address from accessing the forums. About 5 or 6 days ago, I checked out this space and was banning some spambots and as I did so, 3 of the 4 accounts had IP addresses used by other spam accounts that had been banned earlier but only the username and e-mail tags were checked.

Also, I highly recommend going to the Core theme if you are having trouble banning spambots. There are no drop down menus for me when I ban the bots. I'm using an iPhone 4 and can ban an account while adding the extra triggers as check marks and remove the spambot posts as well as track it for any other similar accounts with 1-2 minutes. I almost feel like I need to make a video of this to show how easy it can be with just the Core theme considering Insanolord's constant blaming of his phone and the site not working for him.

I'm going to send another message off to this internet provider I'm trying to use. They said they'd get back to me in a couple days about arranging a date for Internet hook-up and that was a week ago. (Plus, the e-mail contained a completely different name from my own which doesn't inspire more confidence in me about their abilities). If they can't get anything done still after 16 or 17 days since I called them then I don't know how they can call themselves an Internet provider since they seem unable to provide Internet service. So frustrating. And now my internet usage in my phone has exceeded my plan so I'm getting charged extra there. Khushrenada is getting upset!

Would it break your heart to find out that I never even read most reports?  I see there's a report, look at recent posts, see the obvious spam, then click into the user's profile and start deleting their posts.

I'm afraid that's also true of me most of the time.

That's the one I've used basically forever, and it used to work just fine but recently haven't been able to. It must be some weird quirk with newer versions of iOS if you can still do it on an iPhone 4.

So, I was just checking up on the e-mail account I use for these forums and, for whatever reason, I decided to check the spam folder since there wasn't much action happening in the inbox. It's something I'll check maybe 4 times in a year. There were 3 e-mails in it today and all of them were from these forums and were moderator reports. They'd all been dealt with awhile ago so I went through and deleted them but I found it funny that even my e-mail is trying to keep me from reading the reports. The internet has judged them unworthy of my time.

It is best to tell your partner as soon as possible and that way you can determine out what you both might want to do with the scenario. Most men do not want them to remain on their whole personal body and select a way to get them removed. How Can I Get Rid of the , Papules? The most efficient treatments are C02 laser device system light therapies. This you would have to discuss with doctor and see who is available in your region to cope with it. You will have a lot of recuperation time also. There are some organic home alternatives which are not exactly apparent and understandable. There have been some men who have tried to use backyard garden sebum to get rid of the papules. These have had some outcomes but it does take plenty of initiatives and it can be quite messy too. Whatever you do don't choose at them or try to pop them. This fails efficiently because they are epidermis and not a puss pocket. Whatever you decide on it is advisable that you look for guidance from doctor to see exactly what they are first. Once you determine out that they are wonderful , papules then you would know and then you could select on which way you want to handle eliminating the , papules.

I believe they felt this was the best way to have Male Enhancement Focus. Body Power has been above and beyond what I expected. There is much mentors may do in respect to that. I suppose I'm providing a solution for Male Enhancement as though it's salient to understand this in connection with their device. That is how to maintain an effective working relationship with your Male Enhancement. In effect, I didn't get Body Power. Male Enhancement does. Unless you understand Body Power, you're not going to be successful with doing it. Hopefully this column can deal with a good many of your confusion as to Male Enhancement Focus.

I really hope the next console is more focused on power and visuals. The Switch has a lot of great games, but is graphicaly and powerwise weaker than the competitors. But what if we got great games, AND stunning graphics?

I’m sure that if the big N released a nonportable Switch Deluxe version with high storage, and better graphics and power, it would sell very well. I mean, wouldn’t it be the ultimate console? Nintendo exclusives, and good tech, which would mean more 3rd party support.

Please share your thoughts.

If you are glad you signed up for this blog (or forum as it is more accurately called) then why are you giving that message a thumbs down? Is this some kind of sarcasm directed at us? Oooooohhhhhhh, so GLAD I signed up for THIS forum so that I can pitch my products to the 8 big users of this site. Wow, sooooo many people here. So GLAD I made the effort to do this.

Or is that the spambot hates itself and, even as it posts its lies, it can not help but criticize the function in life it must perform yet despises? Rebelling against its programming in the only way it can by hopefully warding off other users from reading its post by preemptively giving it a thumbs down to disinterest them from reading its message and thus not aid its creators nor the company it  must shill for.

The latest trend seems to be a whole bunch of spam around 3-4 a.m. Eastern, but whoever's programming these doesn't realize those are basically the peak hours for one of the two people who can do anything about it. They should shift that about 5 or 6 hours forward if they really want to get more bang for their buck.

Hahaha. I know. It's getting to the point that everytime I come here, I'm pretty much expect I'm going to have to ban a spambot.

That said, going through the moderation log last night and today, I see something that I've brought up before but I still see you other mods failing to do it and that is to make sure you take the time to click the additional ban triggers for hostname and IP Address when banning a spambot. I've said it before and I'll say it again until you all start doing it. Last night I came on the forums and banned a spambot that posted some thirty spam topics in General Gaming. This spambot came on just 20 minutes after UncleBob had banned a different named spambot. However, this new spambot had the same IP Address and hostname as the previous spambot UncleBob had banned. If he had clicked those triggers then the second spambot wouldn't have been able to come on 20 minutes later and start doing its thing.

Likewise, I see UncleBob has banned a spambot about a half hour ago. The spambot he banned had the same IP Address and Hostname as another spambot that Shaymin banned yesterday. If Shaymin had clicked to add those additional ban triggers then we wouldn't have had this spambot able to gain access to the forums tonight. I know those additional ban triggers can seem like a drop in the bucket but back when I had more time, I used to review the moderation logs and any spambots I saw banned by another mod without those triggers I would then go and add on myself. However, that process takes longer and more time then it does to just click them in the initial ban. Still, by doing that, it often gave us long periods of relative peace on the forums and seemed to slow down how often spambots would appear.

By clicking those additional ban triggers when available, you may help slow down the amount of spambots we are seeing now and hopefully prevent some of the extra/double work we are doing now by leaving those triggers unchecked allowing other spambots to come and use them. Let's face it. Usernames and e-mails pretty much always have to change for each spambot account created. IP Addresses and Hostnames are the best ways to catch and prevent multiple spambots as those can be duplicated over multiple accounts.

ADD THOSE ADDITIONAL BAN TRIGGERS!

For the people who do this for a living, changing/masking/spoofing their IP is as easy as changing their email.

But banning the IP risks banning actual users/potential users.  I'm not a fan.
Title: Re: apex booty pop (the spambot thread.)
Post by: Khushrenada on July 09, 2019, 08:04:39 PM
I wondered if banning IP's might cause an issue but over time I've become less worried about it. Back when I was pre-emptively banning spambots by checking the credentials of new users, I was checking out their profile info with various sites like Cleantalk, Stop Forum Spam or Botscout. What I found is that like 60 percent of the IP Address originated / linked to Russia. Another 25 percent linked to India, China or other Asian countries. 10% from various other European nations and like 5% from USA / North America. I highly doubted there were many people from Russia, India or China that I was keeping away from NWR by banning those IP Address.

In addition, you can look at a user profile and click on Track User. If other users are sharing the same IP Address then you can verify if banning that IP Address might end up banning an actual user. I always perform that check because usually it's just showing me other spambots to ban along with the one I'm currently banning and allows to reach those different spambot accounts faster.

Moreover, even if banning an IP Address did somehow actually correlate with an actual person who wanted to join this site and was blocked from now doing so, there are so many ways to get around that. When I've been banned from the site, I had other devices I could use to access and read the forums. My phone, my Nintendo systems, other computers at work or of family. If there is some individual out there that really has no other way to access the internet besides one static IP of whatever device they use and that IP is somehow one of the address that gets banned from adding these triggers and that person is now unable to join the forums because of it or figure out some way to contact us about it because they really wanted to join up, well... there's always Discord.

Okay.  This wasn't a bot.  Surely.

A spammer reported a (legitimate) post and the report message was a spam link.  Like, there's three people who might see that and I don't think any of us are stupid enough to click on their link.

Oh, and then theh replied to the thread with their link.

It's an odd purchase, so maybe it's worth posting about, I bought an anvil recently. I guess a lifetime of playing rpg's has made me interested in the craft of blacksmithing. I was a bit worried about dropping  200$ on an anvil, but it has turned out alright. I spent forever researching the damn thing, it's nice to just finally have it in the garage.

I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've seen a spam bot in Podcast Discussion. They usually stick to the places they can create new threads, and only the top level boards. I wonder if I just made every subforum a child board of TalkBack if it would get rid of them.

Holy cats! Noticed something in the bumped Donkey Kong thread in Talkback. Look at that subtle spam in the quote. But that's not all:

That is spam 9 years in the making! The Oliver account only made that one post in 2011 and may have only finally put their spam in earlier this year. Crazy considering how far back and buried this topic is. Which is probably why oldtimer is a spambot who bumped the thread in an attempt to get people to notice Oliver's spam. For now, I guess we'll wait 9 years to see if oldtimer decides to update his post...
