    WTH is goin' on in the beer forum?

    There's too much chinese script in there for me to make any sense of what's goin' on. Are all the beer lovers in China posting all at once how much they love Tsingtao or what?
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    there was some serious spamming going on this morning, it wasn't limited to the beer forum. IDK why? maybe it's a presidents day protest, or celebration, or because enduro?

    I don't have mod privileges in that forum or I'd start whacking them. Sucks being on a low carb diet.

    Can bots do this or is it an actual human being?
    In my opinion this site needs to progress and improve or risk death. User interface and spam control is FAR inferior to forums I use for other interests.

    and you know, the time limit for reporting posts puts a real damper on submitting reports like the mods/admins like to request.

    Can't they just suspend allowing any new users to be created for 48 hours or something?

    Try dealing with "unread" on Tapatalk.....

    When the mess started last night I used my desktop since it's got better security to see WTF these are about.

    Korean gambling sites for the couple I checked.

    Admins need to shut down new accounts for a bit till they can find a way to block the morons completely.

    Please tell me you didn't check by clicking on any of their links.

    The mess actually started yesterday morning.

    I spent nearly an hour cleaning up that mess across the site this morning... Rock was able to lock it down further.

    When it comes to reporting something of this scale no need to send a report for each spam thread, just make a note in your report that there are multiples and we can dig around from there. I had like 50 emails in my inbox for reports, but I really only needed one to see there was a bigger problem, then I just started cleaning up and chasing down new ones until Rock could get the IP Ranges banned.

    Instead of punishing IP ranges can't we just go and knee them in the groin for 2 hours?
