    Spam bots

    Why are so many popping up the past couple days.



    Normally I don't ever see them. Today alone I have reported at least 2-3 threads while having seen at least 2 more.

    My guess? The same "controller" just launched a bunch of new ones at MMO-C is on their target list. They'll ban them all soon enough and in a few days they'll dwindle.

    I suspect he is actually some Soviet algorithm gone rogue, transmitting from some forgotten bunker, responding to keywords by googling them and adding "+bad" to the search query, and then just copy/pasting anything it comes across.

    We're aware of the issue.

    In the mean time, just keep reporting them so we can get rid of them as soon as possible.
