    Sorry- usually our spam filter catches them pretty well. These are a bit different from the usual ones so the filter needs to "learn" again- and this is the awkward time of day where the US mods are going to bed and the EU ones are waking up. We'll handle them as soon as a mod is available, reports help.

    Thanks for your patience- going to move this to S&F in case an admin wants to chime in.

    Just make it Threads can only be made with people that have 100+ posts. Would actually probably clean a lot of spam and pointless threads up.

    Oh thank you for the answer (: <3 Imo there very interesting, am wondering who is spending time to have a bot just spam gibberish.
    Tonight it seems like they were trying to sell blackmagic.

    Then you will have bots who spam generic 1 liner posts like "I agree with this" "This thread is very informative" "Thank you for useful info" etc. until they reach the post count to start threads.

    Or it will put ads in the signature or profile description - seen these too.

    A few random spam comments here and there is better than a page full of Spam Threads. At least most the time "I agree with this" comments are infracted anyway, so they would get filtered out pretty quick before hitting 100 posts.

    Just report it and we'll clean it up as soon as we can.
