Spambot sign!

I know I'm probably stating the obvious now, but a spambot, Atothekit, has been defacing many of the threads with spam.

Oldschool thinks we should unleash ASH and his knife! Even after the pitiful campaign he waged against the South, im sure he can make short work of a dirty old Spambot!

If you watch Titanic backwards, It is a heart warming tale of a ship which jumps out of the water & saves lots of drowning people.

ofcourse they are a real person LoL

at a guess i would say it is moonchic66 on trademe


like i said they are not the posters on the thread on 4chan the name Inikalord was only mentioned as the buyer of fortress maximus on trademe

then i noticed Inikalord has just become a member here

i wonder how long they have been collecting for i would like to see some more G1 collectors here :D

cant really do much about that as we cant force people to join in. Ive suggested the Sightings forum be member only however

Its seems we need to update the forum to the latest version *sigh* In a perfect world spammers would die from a venereal disease

yeah, closing off the sightings nad maybe buy sell trade would be good? maybe they have to post a certain few time s before they can use the buy sell trade forums if that is possible? saves them just signing up for the sole purpose of scoring deals and bargains?

closing off the sightings is good though.

I'll update the forums either tonight or tomorrow, sorry about the delay, I haven't been online much recently and didn't realise there was a problem till Zippo texted me.
