Yes, that is exactly what was happening.  I've cleared it out.  Things should be back to normal now.

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Thanks mods for doing your best against them. :beer: :cake:

Must have been a hundred pages of unreadable spam the other day! :roll:

I really don't see what the gain is for the spammers/bot creators?

Some programmers just want to watch the world burn...

 

Was beginning to feel like the Castle of Spamalot in the discussions thread, thank you moderators for fixing it!  :pizza:

 

Oh, because I am allergic to things I do not want to do. *Cough*

We are reviewing our systems to try and stem the tide. It's a balancing act. Of course we don't want to lock new users out of the forum - just make it difficult for spammers to get on.
