Is honestly confused by life.
Report them. Block them. Move on.
This has been a thing all week long. You can block them to clear them out for you, mods will come eventually to clear them.

This forum has very little to protect from bots.

Kinda weird, makes me feel really uneasy, like they might have something to do with the hackings. Im probably just paranoid though XD

oh fair enough, im not whining was just a smidge confused, i wasnt aware the forum was alive until FA went down so i joined recently and havent been keeping up to much, i mean ive been reporting them but like theres SO MANY its rather crazy how unprotected the forums are considering how the site is right now, yyoud hope the forums would be a small safety net.

so it is bots then and not some troll? thanks though

You must be new here~ The mods already know about this, trust me. If you want any more input, there's many other topics on the matter; though I suggest doing more research before making a topic on the already addressed matter.
Block the joy32 account and move on.

No ones really whining in this thread, just people confused, but I can agree with what youre saying.

indeed i wasnt aware forums were alive until FA went down so im still getting used to using it, im glad i can block people and hide their threads, theres a lot of vile threads i had seen that were just oh lord. so im glad im able to hide them xD and eh people can get upset but i still appreciate their help even if they think im whining

Geez, everyones so on the edge lately. You guys really gotta try not to snap at people, especially when theyre just new here, I dont like to see people treated this way as its very impolite. She was just confused, and so was I. There was no reason to go off on her

thats all good, i apologise for the thread, i havent seen any threads about the bots so i didnt know, i feel bad for annoying people with this thread x.x
You're fine, mate. You didn't know.

Next time, try the search feature (magnifying glass under alerts) to find similar threads before posting.

Don't worry too much about it. You seem alright. Just lurk more, mate~

This is true, but we try to enforce our anti-spam policies as efficiently as possible because the mods won't do it for us. This isn't a good reason to snap at people, but weak minds will anyway.
