Yeah I deleted all the posts in the open forum but I dont have mod power in the for sale trade.

I've contacted volt and left a message in the staff room. It's a spam bot that should be dealt with soon

Edit: never fear stealthhawk is here!

we need to do something nasty to the people responsible for all this porn spam

maybe we could slip the coordinates of their homes to the US military so a few of those planes bombing Iraq will do the dirty work for us

WTF has a right to place a spam bot here? Why nt trace the ISP and the ISP takes care of them? I would sue the ****s in the international court of law.

Well there is a new version of vbulletin that has just been released to deal with this bot, it uses the image verification system where the users have to type in the digits they see in the picture to register.

Default My question: Why?

Why do they spam porn here? It might sound dumb, but I'm seriously curious. Are they looking for hits or are they just causing trouble?

I would guess a little from column A and a little from column B. Either way, I'm glad I missed this and hope the latest version of vbulletin will be implemented very soon.
