Bots in the thread

+10 votes


I've been getting a lot of bots in this thread:

I closed it for now as the latest one is clearly a porn bot. What's going on? Why do I keep getting bots in that thread? Hope someone can help me out. I already c/ped the thread to Eowyn and closed the old one for now. I would suggest no one click the links the bot provided lest you want be infested with malware.

Just want to give everyone a heads' up. Keep the site clean and PG.

Edit: Looks like someone cleaned up the thread. Thanks!

Botspam happens. Next time you see it, just flag the spam post. That will get the attention of moderators and sysops who will deal with it.
Okay. Thanks, Ellen! =D

Thanks, Karen. I really need to get around to making a new newsletter. =)
Hopefully the next one will be bot free xxx
I hope so too!

It keeps being added as a comment to the main section. Me and Chris keep getting e-mail notifications that someone replied to our posts... Its like 2-3 times a week I get one - Its normally in Russian.

 Today's was quite "Different" blush

I just go in and flag them if no one else has gotten to it yet when I see one.
