Exclamation Spammers

Noticed a lot of new members today whose user names are just numbers, don't know if they are real people or if they are automated. Either way they are registering and posting spam. One happened to post in a thread I started today, user name 6201896972. I recieved email notification of the reply to my thread and fortunately it was not actually posted on the Forum. The posting had a list of links to some blogs written in bad english that didn't make much sense with "runescape power leveling" links randomly placed in the writings.

I just thought I'd let you know because we have enough "one-time" posting members here as it is, we don't need members that don't even exist! If these are automated then they have found a way around the registration security and it could become a problem.

I check daily for those. I ban them and delete the posts usually. If you see any, just let me know. I am checking threads daily and I have banned and deleted worse. I just got an email about a thread I removed. It had nothing to do with the site. It was a relationship issue.

Yes, I do. I then come to the site and find them and take care of the problem.
