Attack of the spammers emergency

I saw a lot of spam messages by botspam more than usual, is there a kind of protection against it (exept the report "button").
This is an emergency, this is a forum site, not a shopping center.

Re: Attack of the spammers emergency

This isn't the first time they've shown up, and believe-it-or-not, its actually not the worst wave we've had. Some days the spam was so thick you could cut it with a knife and make a sandwich with it. You still get some slipping through like now, but it has greatly improved since the time when they first started hitting us. People (myself included, sadly) would sometimes give IIMarckus a hard time about adding protections from the spam, but he really has done a lot to help the problem and it seems like it has definitely made an improvement.

(On a side note, I even included joking references to the spam attacks in the current version of Pokemon Christmas.)

yeah, I was about to add a joke too in one of my Gold hacks:

Haha. The main spambots I referenced were for UGG boots, Northface jackets, (both made sense to come up in a winter hack) and one that was particularly unintelligible that started off with something along the lines of "Excuse me for selection topic to posting this".

But I really want those shoes. . .

Just be patient A.T., they'll be off someday. You'll get used to it. IIMarckus on the other side is probably giving his very best to get rid of the spammers/bots, so chill.
