Mods/Admin - can you sort out the spam?

  • Latest update: Apologies for errors yesterday, due to php resource allocation needs configuring to suit the server, and can only do that when we know what's not working.

    There should be no more errors now, but there might be a bit more configuring required. If you get any error 500's or other errors browsing, please send me a pm with your ip address, time of error (and your timezone if not uk), and the page you're trying to access.

    Should be leading to some big performance increase and new features. Thanks to everyone for patience and support.

Of the 40 threads on this page, 11 of them are spam from some useless cunts selling shite. That's more than 25% of all threads being retarded spam links. Is there no way to block these bots? If not, then do we need some more Mods to keep on top of it, so that any shit like this gets deleted quickly?

Lunny, Wiirdo and me are doing the best we can but it's virtually impossible at the rate they're generating. Kill one, two appear in its place. It has to be a technical fix beyond just us. Jay tried one method but it obviously hasn't worked so back to the drawing board.

Precisely.

Actual photograph of the mod team dealing with it:



(That's me on the horse obviously. Wiirdo's got a spear and that little red bloody bit on the floor is Lunny after a nasty one yesterday)
You guys are my heroes :horse

Are there any security captcha forms you can put in place for when you sign up? Or for when you want to create a thread? To prove you're human. That can stop bots

This is why I support the crackdown of unions.

Kill one thread, and Bogotazo is already claiming his mandatory 15 minute break.

Lunny on the other hand stresses out after 2 deletes and has to visit the NHS daily for his "work related stress". Luckily Theresa May will put an end to that soon.

Jay is an useless cunt

Fleaman doesn't want to be a mod again, he's too busy convincing those bots that Wladimir is a greater heavyweight than Dempsey anyway.

Ha!

Good luck on getting the funds for that firewall, you can only click on that Resident Evil ad so many times.
