Taking over? You mean I waste my time cleaning the forum every single day? Wink

It's one single bot that's behind all this. All the others I'm able to block. To stop this specific bot I'd have to either block an entire country, or ban the use of all yandex.com email addresses.

As always, I'm trying to find ways to automatically keep the forum clean, but as of right now this bot is a little tricky.

Regards
Sharp.

Thanks Sharp , for all that you guys do here.

The weirdest ones are the ones that appear to say randomly generated sentences of semi understandable babble, disembodied from everyone else.

Yeah those one's are odd for sure.
If you ever see one that's a few days old that we haven't deleted, just let us know and we will take care of it.

Thanks a million.

Maybe it would spare you some time, to make a button so people (with some reputation) can press a 'This is Spam' button, which automatically hides the post and you can get a list and revert the posts which have been marked accidentally as spam.
