    Yeah this is pretty u much a daily occurance at this point. The bots attack he mods delete it all repeats. It’s like an unfunny version of Groundhog Day.

    Yeah the mods do a really good job so I’d say you probably wouldn’t notice it over there, it’s just your night coincides with our morning so it’s very obvious to us in Europe lol.

    apparently since they use the same user name for all the posts it is easier to delete the post and ban (all that means is each day they create new users and go again)

    I only report the first one or two because, get this, the anti spam measures make it so that I can't submit them as fast as I type. It says I have to wait before posting again(even though I’m reporting) so after one or two I get tired of it and think, “well, that’s enough for them to figure it out.”

    Does a banned member still count toward the member total on the main page? @mcherry

    I don’t think so? I never paid attention to the count when spam banning.

    What kind of postings are we talking? I hope it’s not the “I make 86 dollars a day using this method” crap I’ve been seeing on other message boards as of late.

    Has anyone run a translation to figure this out?

    They’re in Chinese and have something to do with our universities.

    be glad this is not what you guys have to see when browsing the pages after the spam is all 'cleaned up'.

    Oh wow that’s even MORE annoying than what I mentioned earlier but I’m kind of thinking it may be the same type of spam. On other sites no matter the topic the very first post is always “I make 86 dollars a day from home” post.
