Just a question- how come we can still see members that are banned in the members list? This is probably a no brainer- but I'm sorta curious ;w;
I'm sure they can't, maybe. Possibly when someone is banned, they are booted from the site as a whole, with either no returning, or just no involvement in any conversations or general topics here. That's a longshot though, dunno for sure.I was wondering if they could still see the forums even if they are banned? I'm just guessing XD
I feel like the banned users probably just view the site like a Guest (someone who's not logged in). I think their account is banned, but I don't think the IP gets banned. Even if it was, there are easy ways around that, too.Who knows XD
I just thought maybe they can see but they just can't talk or post things lol
A good question. Wonder if anyone will answer that one logically, and I do mean that. Bots are quite the plague nowadays.I don’t understand what the end game is for making bots on a site like this. If they didn’t get banned, what would these bots do? Are they just maliciously bogging down the site? Do they solicit? Is someone just that bored?
I have so many questions...
It's their facebook template. You don't think FAF is significant enough for spambots to make a specific template to spam it do you?Is it just me or is it that every time I look at one of these banned profiles- they are always over the age of 40? At least from what I've seen XD
Well, a lot of the time you guys don't see 'em because we mark them as spam before they can actually access the forum. They get caught by StopForumSpam antispam measures. Some of them slip through the cracks, though.Really? I see them maybe once every two months, guess I just miss them and they're just very lazy with their templates
