    spam

    ok this is absolutely ridiculous. the first 9 pages of General are filled with spam. WHERE ARE THE MODS???????? ARE THEY SLEEPING???

    if they are sleeping, maybe promote some Aussies or European mods who are online and will actually do something.

    I don't know but it's been a whole week of this spam.
    Maybe have a bot automatically remove threads containing links from a new user.
    Automod can detect flaming it should be not hard to detect urls

    it's been going solid for the last 2 hours. so if both Splenda and Aucald are both based in the USA that means it started either 2am for West Coast or 5am for East Coast. so they are asleep, and rightfully so, which means the site needs mods that are based in Europe, Asia and Oceanic to deal with this bullshit

    The +91 code designates India. One solution could be to block all incoming traffic from that location.

    They should just do the same as wowhead. All free accounts have to complete a captcha to post. Premium users don't have to.

    Simples!

    Mods are busy sucking Chinese cock.
    When they are done with deepthroating they will do their job.

    It has become quite a mess. The only thing we can do is report or poke on the discord but else, we have to wait as the moderators need to be available first.

    If you believe you are suited as a moderator, you can always apply.

    That actually sounds like a good idea. Never filled out a captcha on my account though.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    Thanks for the patience. Likely people were sleeping (I know I was).
