We need a lot of things.

I threatened to spam the Discord until the forums were fixed. :D

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.

It clearly just means that James Jones is using spambots to pad RFN's listener numbers.

The jig is up.

I've banned about three spambots that have posted in the Podcast discussion forum. It is rare but it does happen.

Still check in to see what's happening. Just banned a spambot when I checked in now.

You guys notice that sub-sub forums never get spambots? Like the movie and tv section. Maybe we need to make everything sub sub forums.

Nope. Never noticed or thought of that before. Insanolord is asleep at the switch again.  ;)

Just banned a spambot from the TV/Movie subforum. Yes, they do post there on occasion too.

There’s a spambot posting under the user name “Username.” I’m shocked this hasn’t been taken yet. I wonder if its password is “password.”

Try it. Log out of your account to try logging on under Username and see if that works.

Whoever's making these spambots seems to think there's a big potential audience for the Grey Cup here.

There's been a sudden huge influx of spambots posting streams of rodeos tonight, and I'm kind of curious why.

Wait! You're telling me that you watch every sport except the one actual good one which is Rodeo?!?

Typical rusty dusty city slicker ignorance.

I don’t watch basketball either, and it really stings that that’s the one sports thread on here that gets regular discussion.

There are only five people who regularly post in the NBA thread and BeautifulShy is two of them. Soren, who started the thread, checked out once the Warriors all came down with a horrible case of broken hand. He’ll be back in October.

The spam bots are pimping XFL streams now, that league might just have a chance of sticking this time.

Based on how much activity it's getting in Talkback I guess it really is the Xtra Fun League

That spambot in general gaming has been around for 5 hours. Where is the mod?

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...

I guess we should have been suspicious when a random stranger was paying Aaron compliments.

That was a good topic though, so the spammer did good by bringing it back up!
