Seriously, shouldn't we do something about registration? Or how about a system that bans a user that posts this kind of shit?

Okay guys, i think site security seriously needs to be re-evaluated. I've reported 3 bots today, all advertising the exact same bullsh#t. Judging by this thread, this isn't something new. A new countermeasures needs to be put in place to prevent this from reoccurring.

A simpler and less drastic approach would be to recruit more moderators. Most of the mods here are American with the exception of Kalmor. More UK/ European mods would make catching these bot a lot quicker, in the absence of the American mods.

I think at least 3 moderators per region may be a good idea, with 24/7 coverage and protection against spammers.

Or perhaps we could have a requirement where you HAVE to post in the introductions first before being able to create a thread? I remember a site I was on previously did this and it helped cut it down a bit.

Do these spammers really think they're accomplishing anything by posting here?
